Quotations by Lerner, Alan Jay


In short, there’s simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot.

More quotes by Lerner, Alan Jay

Each evening, from December to December,
Before you drift to sleep upon your cot,
Think back on all the tales that you remember
Of Camelot.
Ask ev’ry person if he’s heard the story,
And tell it strong and clear if he has not,
That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory
Called Camelot.

Don’t let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief shining moment that was known
As Camelot.
