Monty Python Sings is a comedy album of songs written by the Monty Python team.

The song "Oliver Cromwell" was never released prior to this album. It also contains a new recording "I've Got Two Legs," which had previously only been released as part of live recordings, and the previously rare single version of "The Lumberjack Song." The album also has the complete version of the "Medical Love Song" and "Henry Kissinger," which each had a verse cut out of its appearance on Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album.
