Galaxy Song, The

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown,
And things seem hard or tough,
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite eno-o-o-o-o-ough,

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
Revolving at 900 miles an hour,
That's orbiting at 90 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A Sun which is the source of all our power.
The Sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at 40 000 miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way.

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars,
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side,
It bulges in the middle, 16 thousand light years thick,
But out by us it's just 3000 light years wide.
We're 30 000 light years from galactic central point,
We go round every 200 million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions,
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can wizz,
As fast as it can go - the speed of light, you know -
12 million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How incredibly unlikely was your birth,
And you'd better hope there's intelligent life somewhere up there

'Cause there's bugger all here on earth.
