I'm looking for a song about King Arthur and the knights of Camelot. I believe it was from the 70s but I don't think it was from the Rick Wakeman album. Does anyone know any Camelot related songs that might fit the bill.

Thanks for your help!

Something from Romantic Warrior by Return to Forever?
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

Are You Sitting Comfortably?
 

Take another sip my love and see what you will see,
A fleet of golden galleons, on a crystal sea.
Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell.

Ride along the winds of time and see where we have been,
The glorious age of Camelot, when Guinevere was Queen.
It all unfolds before your eyes
As Merlin casts his spell.

The seven wonders of the world he'll lay before your feet,
In far-off lands, on distant shores, so many friends to meet.
Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell.



I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of uncertain seas

None of these seem to be the right one but thanks for all the responses (especially the Python!!). I wish I could remember more details about the lyrics but all I can recall was the fact that they discussed the exploits of King Arthurís knights! The song had an early seventies prog feel with a little bit of folk influence (reminded me a lot of Strawbs).

That was the first song that popped in my mind.

Bigorna by the Brazilian band Cartoon is about the myth of King Arthur.

I don't get the hesitation? Of course it's Rick Wakeman!
