Lyrics posted by permission of the authors

The lady is kidnapped and Guilder is framed
The six-fingered man haunts my subconscious brain
The rhymes of the giant drive Vizzini insane
And that word doesn't mean what he's thinkin'

And it's sail, sail away from that sailboat
He may be gaining, but we're not afraid
As we sail for the cliffs of insanity
All of the eels are shrieking

We don't want to kill her, but it's hard to avoid
Vizzini has told us we'll be unemployed — >
Fezzik offers a peanut — Vizzini's annoyed
When we get to the top, we'll be leavin'

And it's scale, scale, the side of the mountain
Hang on to Fezzik — the man in black gains
As we climb up the Cliffs of Insanity
All of the eels are shrieking

It's time for a fight now, and well-matched are we
But I'm not left-handed, and neither is he
I have to admit that he's better than me
And I'm knocked on the head when he's leavin'

And it's sleep, sleep, sleep off the headwound
I'll wait for Vizzini — I will not be moved
And it's fare ye well, ye cliffs of insanity
All of the eels are shrieking

Some fight for the glory. Some fight for the pay
But I am the Spaniard, and fighting's my way
It's a hard life to live, and a high price to pay
When the six-fingered man is still breathin'

Hello — My name is Inigo Montoya
You killed my father — Prepare to die
And it's fare ye well ye Cliffs of Insanity,
All of the eels are shrieking
