Camelot the Musical - Guenevere Lyrics

Music by Ken Darby, Frederick Loewe
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

Oh, they found Guenevere
With her bold cavalier
And as swords rang through the hall
Lance escaped them, one and all

On a day dark and drear
Came to trial Guenevere
Ruled the jury for her shame
She be sentenced to the flame

Early dawn was the time
She would pay for her crime
Or would Lancelot reappear
Come and rescue Guenevere?

I'll wager the king himself is hoping he will return
Why would he have chosen five AM for the queen to burn?
When the world is black and gray, what time would be more ideal
For Lancelot to steal Guenevere?

As the dawn filled the sky
On the day she would die
There was wonder far and near
Would the king burn Guenevere?

Then suddenly earth and sky were dazed by a pounding roar
And suddenly through the dawn an army began to pour
And lo, ahead the army, holding aloft his spear
Came Lancelot to save his dear Guenevere

By the score fell the dead
As the sky turned to red
Countless numbers felt his spear
As he rescued Guenevere

In that dawn, in that gloom
More than love met its doom
In the dying candle's gleam
Came the sundown of a dream

Guenevere, Guenevere
In that dim, mournful year
Saw the men she held most dear
Go to war for Guenevere

Guenevere, Guenevere
Guenevere, Guenevere
Saw the men she held most dear
Go to war for Guenevere

Guenevere, Guenevere, Guenevere

Camelot the Musical Lyrics

I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight
The Simple Joys of Maidenhood
Follow Me
C'est Moi
The Lusty Month of May
Then You May Take Me to the Fair
How to Handle a Woman
Before I Gaze at You Again
If Ever I Would Leave You
The Seven Deadly Virtues
What Do the Simple Folk Do?
Fie on Goodness
I Loved You Once in Silence
