"The Universe Song" by Eric Idle 


Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
And things seem sad or tough
And people are useless, or obnoxious, or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite enough...

Verse 1:

[G7 G7]Just re-
[C C]member that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
revolving at nine-hundred miles an [G7 G7]hour
and orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
a sun that is the source of all our [C C]power.
Now the sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are [A7 A7]moving a million miles a [F F]day
In an [F7 F7]outer spiral arm at forty [C C]thousand miles an hour
of the [G7 G7]galaxy we call the Milky [C C]Way.

Verse 2:

[C C]Our galaxy itself contains a hundred million stars,
it's a hundred thousand light-years side to [G7 G7]side,
it bulges in the middle, sixty thousand light-years thick,
but out by us it's just three thousand light-years [C C]wide.
We're thiry thousand light-years from galactic central point
We go [A7 A7]'round every two hundred million [F F]years,
and our [F7 F7]galaxy itself is one of [C C]millions of billions in this
A A[G7 G7]mazing and Expanding Uni[C C]verse!

Verse 3:

[C C]The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
in all of the directions it can [G7 G7]whiz,
as fast as it can go, the speed of light, y'know,
twelve million miles a minute, and that's the [C C]fastest speed there is,
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How a[A7 A7]mazingly unlikely is your [F F]birth,
And [F7 F7]pray that there's intelligent life [C C]somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's [G7 G7]bugger-all down here on [C C]Earth.
