In Spamalot, King Arthur sings "I'm All Alone". At one point, he says: We must be lonely side by side / It's a perfect way to hide
. What do these lyrics mean?

King Arthur sings "I'm All Alone"
in Spamalot. (full lyrics to "I'm All Alone"
). It is a funny song, since Arthur is, in fact, never alone - he's always with Patsy (and later the Lady of the Lake points out that she's with him too, not to mention the Knights of the Round Table, etc).
At one point in the song, Arthur switches from singing how he
is all alone to how all of us
are all alone:
Each one of us is all alone
So what are we to do in order to get through
We must be lonely side by side
It's a perfect way to hide
Hide from what?
