THE SIMPLE JOYS OF MAIDENHOOD From the Broadway musical "Camelot" (1960) (Alan Jay Lerner / Frederick Loewe) Julie Andrews (Broadway Production) - 1960 Elizabeth Larner (London Production) - 1963 Vanessa Redgrave (Film Soundtrack) - 1967 Meg Bussert (Broadway Revival) - 1980 Also recorded by: André Previn; Lois Winters; Madge Stephens; Janice Sherwood; Pat Michael; Percy Faith & Orch.; Hugo Montenegro & Orch. Where are the simple joys of maidenhood? Where are all those adoring daring boys? Where's the knight pining so for me he leaps to death in woe for me? Oh where are a maiden's simple joys? Shan't I have the normal life a maiden should? Shall I never be rescued in the wood? Shall two knights never tilt for me and let their blood be spilt for me? Oh where are the simple joys of maidenhood? Shall I not be on a pedestal, Worshipped and competed for? Not be carried off, or better st'll, Cause a little war? Where are the simple joys of maidenhood? Are those sweet, gentle pleasures gone for good? Shall a feud not begin for me? Shall kith not kill their kin for me? Oh where are the trivial joys? Harmless, convivial joys? Where are the simple joys of maidenhood?
