The King's Knight Out

(Tune: God Save the King/My Country 'tis of Thee)

King Arthur had a date,
He stayed out very late,
The Queen was mad,
The Queen, she paced the floor,
The King came in at four,
She met him at the door,
God save the King.
(Or, Please help the King)

He'd been out with the knights,
They had been in a fight,
With enemies,
He fell into the moat,
Pushed by a passing goat,
He could just barely float,
God save the King.

His friends would not come near,
Loaded with battle gear,
They could not swim,
Helmets and armor, new,
Cross-bows and arrows, too.
Even a metal shoe,
God save the King.

Just then a knight went by,
His clothes were nice and dry,
He jumped right in,
Swam to the sinking King,
Pulled him out of the stream
You should have heard him scream,
God save the King.
