  • Song Lyrics:
    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 enough....


    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving,
    And revolving at 900 miles an hour,
    That's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned
    A sun that 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 100 billion stars
    It's 100,000 light years side to side
    It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light years thick
    But out by us it's just 3,000 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 and billions
    In this amazing and expanding Universe

    The Universe itself, keeps on expanding and expanding,
    In all of the directions it can whiz.
    As fast as it can go, at 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 amazingly unlikely is your birth
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.
