Blackadder Theme Tune Series 2

One of the hallmarks of the second series of Blackadder was the theme tune sung at the end of each episode.

The vocalist for the closing themes was Jeremy Jackman,  and the annoying lute playing minstrel was played by Tony Aitken.

The Annoying Minstrel

The closing minstrel singing the Blackadder theme tune was in effect a sub-plot, in which the minstrel gradually antagonised Blackadder to the point that he ended up chasing him.

Finally, at the end of the last episode, Blackadder does get a hold of him and dunks him in  the fountain!

All the Blackadder Themes!

We’ve put all the Blackadder theme tune lyrics below. We’ve also included a rather neat video with ALL the theme tunes in one place right here!

Blackadder The Tune Lyrics “Bells”

Lord Flashheart tweaked the Adder’s beard;
From now he always shall be single.
To fall in love with boys is weird;
Especially boys without a dingle.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
his taste is rather odd.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
the randy little sod.
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart,
I wish you were the star.
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart,
you’re sexier by far.

Blackadder Theme Tune Lyrics “Head”

His great-grandfather was a king,
Although for only thirty seconds,
When put in charge of beheading,
He felt that fame and glory beckoned,
Blackadder, Blackadder,
No such blooming luck,
Blackadder, Blackadder,
Elizabethan schmuck,
Blackadder, Blackadder,
Nothing goes as planned,
Blackadder, Blackadder,
Life deals him a bum hand.

Blackadder Theme Tune Lyrics “Potato”

Sir Francis and Sir Walter had
Discovered new worlds and new nations;
And though Black Adder thought them mad,
He tried his hand at navigation.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He saw the ocean’s foam.
Blackadder, Blackadder.
He should have stayed at home.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He heard the new world’s call.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
Discovered bugger-all.

Talk like a pirate day with Captain Redbeard Rum from Blackadder

Blackadder Theme Tune Lyrics “Money”

Take heed the moral of this tale
Be not a borrower or lender;
And if your finances do fail
Make sure your banker’s not a bender.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He trusted in the Church.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
It left him in the lurch.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
His life was almost done.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
Who gives a toss? No one.

The baby Eating Bishop Of Bath And Wells

Blackadder Theme Tune Lyrics “Beer”

Blackadder couldn’t hold his beer,
The art of boozing he’s not mastered.
And I, your merry balladeer,
am also well and truly plastered.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
A bit like Robin Hood.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
But nothing like as good.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
I thought that he had died,
Blackadder, Blackadder,
The writers must have lied.

And just because we know you want to sing the Goblin Song as well…

Blackadder Theme Tune Lyrics “Chains”

Beware all ye who lust for fame,
The path of life is most uncertain;
Prince Ludwig thought he’d won the game,
But now the Kraut’s gone for a burton.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He beat the Hun by luck.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
He’s smarter than a duck.
Lord Melchett, Lord Melchett,
intelligent and deep.
Lord Melchett, Lord Melchett,
a shame about the sheep.
