"Are You Sitting Comfortably?" is a 1969 song by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. It was written jointly by band members Justin Hayward and Ray Thomas. It was recorded and released in 1969 on the Moody Blues Album On the Threshold of a Dream.

The lyrics of "Are You Sitting Comfortably?" refer heavily to the legend of King Arthur, and include direct references to Camelot, and to the characters Merlin and Guinevere, all of which are part of the legend.

The song itself is primarily driven by Justin Hayward's vocal performance and Ray Thomas's flute, which gives it a sound similar to Hayward and Thomas's collaboration, "Visions of Paradise," from the Moody Blues previous album, In Search of the Lost Chord.
