Good King Arthur

Good King Arthur Lyrics

When good King Arthur ruled this land, 

He was a goodly king; 

He stole three pecks of barley-meal, 

To make a bag-pudding. 


A bag-pudding the king did make, 

And stuffed it well with plums; 

And in it put great lumps of fat, 

As big as my two thumbs. 


The king and queen did eat thereof, 

And noblemen beside; 

And what they could not eat that night, 

The queen next morning fried.
