"The Legend of the Sword in the Stone" music and lyrics by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman. Hoping Randy Thornton or someone else in Disney Co. will produce the Original Sound Track of this wonderful masterpiece of animation (I'd like to hear "Robin Hood", "The Rescuers" and "The Fox and the Hound" as well).
A legend is sung Of when England was young And knights were brave and bold
The good king had died And no one could decide Who was rightful heir to the throne
It seemed that the land Would be torn by war Or saved by a miracle alone And that miracle appeared In London town The sword in the stone
(And below the hilt, in letters of gold, were written these words: Whoso pulleth this sword from this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of England)
Though they tried for the sword With all their might No knight In all the land Could draw the wondrous blade From its resting place Its secret, they could not understand
The one who was meant to rule the land And worthy of the throne He will seek the sword with a humble heart And not for himself alone
He will be the one who was born to claim The Sword In The Stone
All the rights for it belongs to the Disney Company. It was not meant for profit.
