RHUBARB TART SONG (John Cleese) John Cleese & The 1948 Show Choir - 1967 I want another slice of rhubarb tart I want another lovely slice I'm not disparaging the blueberry pie But rhubarb tart is oh so very nice (A rhubarb what?) A rhubarb tart (A what barb tart?) A rhubarb tart I want another slice of rhubarb tart The principles of modern philosophy Were postulated by Descartes Discarding everything he wasn't certain of He said, "I think, therefore I am a rhubarb tart" (A rhubarb what?) A rhubarb tart (A René who?) René Descartes For months he thought he was a rhubarb tart A rhubarb tart has fascinated all our poets Especially the Immortal Bard He made Richard the Third call out at Bosworth Field "My kingdom for a slice of rhubarb tart" (Immortal what?) Immortal tart (A rhubarb what?) A rhubarb bard As rhymes go that is really pretty ba-ad Since Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee Laid down the axioms of abstract art Even Jackson Pollock and Piet Mondrian Prefer to paint a slice of rhubarb tart (A Wassi who?) A Wassi-ly (A Kandin who?) A Kandin-sky And how did he get in there for a start Read all the existentialist philosophers Like Schopenhauer and Jean-Paul Sartre Even Martin Heidegger agrees on one thing Eternal happiness is rhubarb tart (A rhubarb what?) A rhubarb tart (Jean-Paul who?) Jean Paul Sartre That sounds just like a rhyme from Lionel Bart And so remember, whether you're a beekeeper Accountant, tree surgeon or informant Our advice to you is always go to work On a slice of rhubarb tart (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2017)
