Brave Sir Robin


     Music by Neil Innes, words by Eric Idle

      (but you all knew that, didn't you?)

     Bravely bold Sir Robin 

                     B7  Em
     Rode forth from Camelot 

     Em                        D            G     
     He was not afraid to die, oh brave Sir Robin 

     G                              D         Asus4
     He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty 


     Em     D      G                D       B7   
     Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin 

     He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed 

       B7   Em
     into a pulp 

     Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows 


                                        D    Asus4     
     To have his kneecaps split and his body burned 


             Em        D          G  
     And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir 

     D        B7

         G                        D
     His head smashed in, and his heart cut out 

             G                      D          
     And his liver removed, and his bowels unplugged 

             G                       D
     And his nostrils raped, and his bottom burned off 

     And his penis ... 


     He is Brave Sir Robin, Brave Sir Robin, who....


     D  G      D 
     To fight, and.....


               Em    B7   Em
     Brave Sir Robin ran away, 

                             B7  Em
     Bravely ran away, away 

          G                 D             Em
     When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely 

     turned his tail and fled 

          G               D
     Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about 

         Em            B7
     And gallantly, he chickened out 

     Em      D      Em     D
     Bravely taking to his feet 

        Em     D    Em      D
     He beat a very brave retreat 

     G       Am     D          G        B7
     Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin 


           Em                D          
     He is packing it in and packing it up 

         Em                D
     And sneaking away and buggering up 

         G          D       G           D
     And chickening out and pissing off home, 

          G       D     Em       B7     Em
     Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge
