    Brave Sir Robin

    by Neill Innes
    [Em] Bravely bold Sir Robin rode [D] forth from [Em] Camelot
    [G] He was not afraid to die, [D] oh brave Sir [G] Robin
    [G] He was not at all afraid to be [D] killed in nasty ways
    [Em] Brave, [D] brave, [G] brave, brave Sir [D] Robin [B7]

    [Em] He was not in the least bit scared to be [D] mashed into a [Em] pulp
    [G] Or to have his eyes gouged out [D] and his elbows [G] broken
    [G] To have his kneecaps split and his [D] body burned away
    And his [Em] limbs all [D] hacked and [G] mangled, brave Sir [D] Robin [B7]

    His [G] head smashed in, and his [D] heart cut out
    And his [G] liver removed, and his [D] bowels unplugged
    And his [G] nostrils raped, and his [D] bottom burned off
    And his [G] penis ...

    Robin: "Thats enough music for now lads, looks like there's dirty work afoot!
    Three-headed Knight: "Halt, Who art thou?!"
    Minstrels: "[Em] He is brave Sir Robin, Brave Sir Robin..."
    Robin: "Shut up! ...Um, Nobody really, I was just passing through"
    Three-headed Knight: "What do you want!?"
    Minstrels: "To [G] fight [D] and ..!"
    Robin: "Shut up! Um, nothing really just to pass through good Sir Knight"

    Brave Sir [Em] Robin [D] ran [Em] away,
    [Em] Bravely [B7] ran [Em] away, away
    When [G] danger reared its [D] ugly head,
    he [Em] bravely turned his [B7] tail and fled
    Yes, [G] brave Sir Robin [D] turned about
    and [Em] gallantly, he [B7] chickened out
    [Em] Bravely [D] taking [Em] to his [D] feet
    He [Em] beat a [D] very [Em] brave [D] retreat
    [G] Bravest [Am] of the [D] brave, Sir [G] Robin [B7]
    [G] Bravest [Am] of the [D] brave, Sir [G] Robin
