--- Stage show starts and soundtrack continues ---

 

French Guards: You English all are bugger folk

Your mothers all are rugger folk

Your army is a bloody joke

You couldn't beat an artichoke

  

If battle you choose to renew

We'll taunt you 'til you all turn blue

We turn our asses as you part

In your direction we all fart!

 

The orchestra plays the first few bars of La Marseillaise, after which point the French Guards fart in Arthur's general direction.

 

French Guard: (spoken) Fetchez la can-can dancers!

 

All Knights: *To the tune of a can-can*

Run away! Run away! Run away! Run-run-run-run-run-run away! Run away! Run away! Run away, run away!

   

They are chased here and there by the French.

 

Ruuuuun a-waaaaay!

Arthur: It seems like a helpful solution

 

Knights: Run away! Run away!
