Oh, what a knight.

Late September in Eight-sixty-three.

Smiting enemies with careless ease,

Never was there such a knight.

 

Oh, what a knight.

She introduced herself as Britomart,

Then stabbed the bandit lord right through the heart.

What a lady, what a knight.

 

Oh, I. I raised a formal protest when she entered

On the lists and I,

I wound up on the wrong side of her fists.

 

Oh, what a knight.

She fought with beauty and she fought with grace,

She fought with sword and lance and sometimes mace.

No surrender, what a knight!

 

She rode a horse like a living bolt of thunder:

Fast as the wind, but still could trample her foemen under.

Oh, what a knight!

 

Oh, I. I raised a formal protest when she entered

On the lists and I,

I wound up on the wrong side of her fists.

 

Oh, what a knight.

Why’d she break the rules of chivalry?

Women are to be protected, see.

What a lady, what a knight.

 

She rode a horse like a living bolt of thunder:

Fast as the wind, but still could trample her foemen under.

Oh, what a knight!
