Blackadder Song List

The Black Adder

(episodes 1-5)
The sound of hoof beats ‘cross the glade,
Good folk, lock up your son and daughter,
Beware the deadly flashing blade,
Unless you want to end up shorter.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he rides a pitch black steed.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he’s very bad indeed.
Black: his gloves of finest mole,
Black: his codpiece made of metal,
His horse is blacker than a vole,
His pot is blacker than his kettle.
Black Adder, Black Adder, with many an cunning plan.
Black Adder, Black Adder, you horrid little man.

“The Black Seal” (episode 6)
So now the wage of sin is paid,
The blameless dead, the black steed grazes.
The only sound across the glade
Is Edmund pushing up the daisies.
Black Adder, Black Adder, a shame about the plan.
Black Adder, Black Adder, tha’ worked, you horrid man.


Blackadder II

“Bells”
Lord Flashheart tweaked the Adder’s beard.
From now he always shall be single.
To fall in love with boys is weird,
Especially boys without a dingle.
Black Adder, Black Adder, his taste is rather odd.
Black Adder, Black Adder, the randy little sod.
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart, I wish you were the star.
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart, you’re sexier by far.

“Head”
His great-grandfather was a king,
Although for only thirty seconds.
When put in charge of beheading,
He felt that fame and glory beckoned.
Black Adder, Black Adder, no such blooming luck.
Black Adder, Black Adder, Elizabethan shmuck.
Black Adder, Black Adder, nothing goes as planned.
Black Adder, Black Adder, life deals him a bum hand.

“Potato”
Sir Francis and Sir Walter had
Discovered new worlds and new nations.
And though Black Adder thought them mad,
He tried his hand at navigation.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he saw the ocean’s foam.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he should have stayed at home.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he heard the new world’s call.
Black Adder, Black Adder, discovered bugger-all.

“Money”
Take heed the moral of this tale:
Be not a borrower or lender.
And if your finances do fail,
Make sure your banker’s not a bender.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he trusted in the church.
Black Adder, Black Adder, it left him in the lurch.
Black Adder, Black Adder, his life was almost done.
Black Adder, Black Adder, who gives a toss? No one.

“Beer”
Black Adder couldn’t hold his beer.
The art of boozing he’s not mastered.
And I, your merry balladeer,
Am also well and truly plastered.
Black Adder, Black Adder, a bit like Robin Hood.
Black Adder, Black Adder, but nothing like as good.
Black Ad<hic>, Black Adder, I thought that he had died.
Black Adder, Black Adder, our writers must have lied.

“Chains”
Beware all ye who lust for fame.
The path of life is most uncertain.
Prince Ludwig thought he’d won the game.
But now the Kraut’s gone for a burton.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he beat the Hun by luck.
Black Adder, Black Adder, he’s smarter than a duck.
Lord Melchett, Lord Melchett, intelligent and deep.
Lord Melchett, Lord Melchett, a shame about the sheep.


Blackadder’s Christmas Carol
He’s kind & gen’rous to the sick,
He’d never spread a nasty rumour.
He never gets on people’s wick,
And doesn’t laugh at toilet humour.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He’s sickeningly good.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
As nice as Christmas pud.


Blackadder Back & Forth closing song
Let joy fill every Briton’s heart,
For now the country’s going to make it.
At last a King who looks the part,
At last a Queen who looks good naked.

Blackadder,
Blackadder,
A monarch with panache,
Blackadder,
Blackadder
He’s got a nice moustache

Everything he wants he’ll get,
The world is now Blackadder’s oyster,
Most Prime Ministers are wet,
But Baldrick he is even moister.

Blackadder,
Blackadder,
A dog who’s got his bone,
Blackadder,
Blackadder,
A bastard on the throne

Blackadder,
Blackadder,
His beard is neatly curled,
Blackadder,
Blackadder,
He’s going to rule the world.
