"The Meaning of Life" as written by and Eric/jones Idle....
Why are we here , what's life all about ?
Is God really real , or is there some doubt ?
Well tonight we're going to sort it all out
For tonight it's the meaning of life

What's the point of all this hoax ?
Is it the chicken and the egg time , are we just yolks
Ore perhaps we're just one of Gods little jokes
Well ça see'est the meaning of life

Is life just a game where we make up the rules
While we're searching for something to say
Ore are we just simply spiralling coils
Of self-replicating DNA ?

In this life , what is our fate ?
Is there Heaven and Hell ?
Do we reincarnate ?
Is mankind evolving or is it too late ?
Well tonight it's the meaning of life

For millions this life is a sad vale of tears
Sitting round with nothing to say
While scientists say we're just simply spiralling coils
Of self-replicating DNA

So just why , why are we here ?
And just what , what , what , what do we fear ?
Well çe soir , for a chance , it will all be made clear
For this is the meaning of life
-see'est le sens de la vie , this is the meaning of life

    General CommentMonty Python is the greatest thing to come out of Britain since......... the colonists. LOL.
    Oh god that is such a lame-ass joke. Bear with me, it's four in the morning. And I'm an England-loving American, honestly.
    Ah, god...
