Whenever life gets you down,
And things seem hard or tough,
When people around are obnoxious to you,
And you feel that you’ve had quite enough,
Just remember that your standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
It’s orbiting at nineteen 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 one million miles a day,
Round the outer-spiral arm at ninety thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way.

The galaxy itself contains a hundred million stars.
It’s one hundred thousand light years side-to-side,
It bulges in the middle fifteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us it’s just three thousand light years wide.
We’re thirty thousand light years from galactic central point,
We go round every hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions,
I this amazing and expanding universe.

The galaxy 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,
Ten 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,
‘Cos there’s bugger all down here on earth.
