Galaxy Song

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 nine hun­dred miles an hour
That’s orbi­ting at nine­teen 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 for­ty thou­sand 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, six­teen thou­sand light years thick
But out by us its just three thou­sand light years wide

We’re thir­ty thou­sand light years from galac­tic cen­tral point
We go round eve­ry two hun­dred 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 whiz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know
Twelve 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
