King Arthur gave Queen Guinevere
 A belt of chastity
A wise idea until he gave
 Sir Lancelot the key.

At first he thought she might object,
 But much to his surprise,
His trusted knight and lady fair
 Had starlight in their eyes.

Despite his fears, he went away
 To march his knights to war,
And left the lovers to themselves
 To break the oaths they swore.

A friendship and a marriage lost
 Is what temptation wrought
Behind the gates and marble walls
 Once known as Camelot.
