"C'est Moi" is a song featured in the 1967 film Camelot with music written by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. In the song, the self-righteous French knight Lancelot du Lac (Franco Nero) makes his way to England with his squire Dep, boasting of his superior virtues. Lancelot's prowess impresses King Arthur (Richard Harris) and they become friends, but many of the knights despise Lancelot for his self-righteousness.


Camelot, Camelot
In far off France, I heard your call
Camelot, Camelot
And here am I to give my all
I know in my soul what you expect of me
And all that and more I shall be

A knight of the table round should be invincible
Succeed where a less fantastic man would fail
Climb a wall, no one else can climb
Cleave a dragon in record time
Swim a moat in a coat of heavy iron mail

No matter the pain, he ought to be unwinceable
Impossible deeds should be his daily fare
But where in the world, is there in the world
A man so extraordinaire?

C'est moi, c'est moi, I'm forced to admit
'Tis I, I humbly reply
That mortal who these marvels can do
C'est moi, c'est moi, 'tis I
I've never lost in battle or game
I'm simply the best by far
When swords are crossed, 'tis always the same
One blow and au revoir

C'est moi, c'est moi, so adm'rably fit
A French Prometheus unbound
And here I stand, with valor untold
Exeption'ly brave, amazingly bold
To serve at the table round

The soul of a knight should be a thing remarkable
His heart and his mind as pure as morning dew
With a will and a self-restraint that's the envy of ev'ry saint
He could easily work a miracle or two

To love and desire he ought to be unsparkable
The ways of the flesh should offer no allure
But where in the world, is there in the world
A man so untouched and pure?
C'est moi

C'est moi! C'est moi, I blush to disclose
I'm far too noble to lie
That man in whom, these qualities bloom
C'est moi, c'est moi, 'tis I
I've never strayed from all I believe
I'm blessed with an iron will
Had I been made the partner of Eve
We'd be in Eden still

C'est moi, c'est moi, the angels have chose
To fight their battles below
And here I stand, as pure as a prayer
Incredibly clean, with virtue to spare
The godliest man I know, c'est moi!
