There is only one word to describe this list... There are only two words to describe this list. I'll just type those two words. 'What are those two words?', we hear you ask. Well, let me tell you those two words, you hear I type. The two words that will describe this list in just two words, and those two words are but just two words. Those two words are 'very' and 'silly'. We are both very sorry that I was only able to type two words to describe this list.

Here are some more words, just to show that we're making the effort. The best Monty Python is hilarious, but the lesser stuff will just leave you scratching your head, unless you're just weird, in which case... you're just weird. We expected it to score higher than it has, but I guess the score just reflects how experimental it was. If you're ever struggling for a word to describe Monty Python, we suggest gboaodd, apparently it's Welsh.

LUMBERJACK SONG

by T. Jones, M. Palin, F. Tomlinson

I'm a lumberjack,
And I'm okay,
I sleep all night,
I work all day.

He's a lumberjack,
And he's okay,
He sleeps all night,
And he works all day.

I cut down trees,
I eat my lunch,
I go to the lavatory,
On Wednesdays I go shopping,
And have buttered scones for tea.

He cuts down trees,
He eats his lunch,
He goes to the lavatory,
On Wednesdays he goes shopping,
And has buttered scones for tea.
He's a lumberjack,
And he's okay,
He sleeps all night,
And he works all day.

I cut down trees,
I skip and jump,
I like to press wildflowers,
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

He cuts down trees,
He skips and jumps,
He likes to press wildflowers,
He puts on women's clothing,
And hangs around in bars?
He's a lumberjack,
And he's okay,
He sleeps all night,
And he works all day.

I cut down trees,
I wear high heels,
Suspendies and a bra,
I wish I'd been a girlie,
Just like my dear mama.

He cuts down trees,
He wears high heels,
Suspenders and a bra?

I wish I'd been a girlie,
Just like my dear mama.

Oh Bevis...
...and I thought you were so rugged.

CAMELOT SONG

(KNIGHTS OF THE
ROUND TABLE)
by G. Chapman, J. Cleese, N. Innes

We're knights of the Round Table,
We dance whene'er we're able,
We do routines and chorus scenes,
With footwork impeccable,
We dine well here in Camelot,
We eat ham and jam and Spam a lot.

We're knights of the Round Table,
Our shows are formidable,
But many times,
We're given rhymes,
That are quit unsingable,
We're opera mad in Camelot,
We sing from the diaphragm a lot.

In war we're tough and able,
Quite indefatigable,
Between our quests,
We sequin vests,
And impersonate Clark Gable,
It's a busy life in Camelot,
I have to push the pram a lot.

ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE

by E. Idle

Cheer up, Brian!
You know what they say?

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad,
Other things just make you swear and curse,
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't Grumble, give a whistle,
And this'll help things turn out for the best,

And always look on the bright side of life,
Always look on the light side of life,
If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing,
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing,

And always look on the bright side of life,
Come on, always look on the right side of life.
For life is quite absurd,
And death's the final word,
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin,
Give the audience a grin,
Enjoy it, it's your last chance anyhow,

So always look on the bright side of death,
Just before you draw your terminal breath,
Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it,
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true,
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go,
Just remember that the last laugh is on you,

And always look on the bright side of life,
Always look on the right side of life,

Come on, Brian! Cheer up!

Always look on the bright side of life,
Always look on the bright side of life,

Worse things happen at sea, you know?

Always look on the bright side of life,

What have you got to lose?
You come from nothing, you're going back to nothing,
What have you lost?
Nothing!

Always look on the bright side of life,

Nothing will come from nothing,
You know what they say,
Cheer up, you old bugger!
Come on! Give us a grin!
They you are!

See? The end of the film.
Incidentally, this record is available in the foyer.
Some of us have got to live as well, you know?
Who do you think pays for all this rubbish?
They're not gonna make their money back, you know.
I told them, I said to him.
"Bernie," I said,
"They'll never make their money back."

EVERY SPERM IS SACRED

by M. Palin, T. Jones. A. Jacquemin. D. Howman

There are Jews in the world,
There are Buddhists,
There are Hindus and Mormons and then,
There are those that follow Mohammed,
But I've never been one of them.

I'm a Roman Catholic,
And have been since before I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics,
Is they'll take you as soon as you're warm,
You don't have to be six-footer,
You don't have to have a great brain,
You don't have to have any clothes on,
You're a Catholic the moment Dad came.

Because... Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Let the heathens spill theirs,
On the dusty ground,
God shall make them pay,
For each sperm that can't be found.

Every sperm is wanted,
Every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed,
In your neighbourhood.

Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
Spill theirs just anywhere,
But God loves those who treat,
Their semen with more care.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed,
in your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is useful,
Every sperm is fine,
God need everybody's,
Mine,
And mine,
And mine.

Let the pagans spill theirs,
O'er mountain, hill and plain,
God shall strike them down,
For each sperm that's spilt in vain.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed,
in your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

GALAXY SONG

by E. Idle, J. Du Prez

Whenever life you gets you down Mrs. Brown,
And things seem hard or tough,
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite enough.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving,
And revolving at 900 miles an hour,
It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power,
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see,
Are moving at a million miles a day,
In an outer spiral arm at 40,000 miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way.

Our galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars,
It's 100,000 light years side to side,
It bulges in the middles 16,000 light years thick,
But out by us, it's just 3,000 light years wide,
We're 30,000 light years from galactic central point,
We go round every 200 million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions,
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all the directions it can whizz,
As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know,
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is,
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on earth.
