"Not in a Million Years" as written by and Gilbert O'sullivan....
Every other morning
I lie in bed awake
And wonder why the dawning
Always has to break

Could it be it must
As we all expect it to
Could it be I just
Simply haven't got a clue

And what if it stayed behind
Had itself a change of mind
What would your impression be
How would you react

Would you simply smile and say
Don't be silly go away
Anyone can plainly see
It couldn't happen here

Not in a million years
So you think you're clever
Well, if you really are
Would you kindly tell me

How big is a star
And what does it contain
Is it metal or wood
How much does it cost

Is it really any good
And what if they all came down
Everyone upon the ground
What would your impression be

How would you react
Would you simply smile and say
Don't be silly go away
Anyone can plainly see

It couldn't happen here
Not in a million years
Everyone knows one and one is two
And all take for granted that it's true

Everybody know that the world is round
Although it doesn't look it from the ground
Everybody knows it's right
But what if one and one were five

And the world not really round
Everywhere was just a huge flat piece of ground
Look at all the animals
Living in zoos

Elephants and tigers
lions and kangaroos
Don't they all look cute
When they're hid behind a cage

Funny when they laugh
Exciting when then rage
But what if they took control
There and then reversed the role

What would your impression be
How would you react
Would you simply smile and say
don't be silly go away

Anyone can plainly see
It couldn't happen here
It couldn't happen here
Not in a million years
