Monty Python - The Galaxy Song

{Spoken, loosely}
Adim7                  A
Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
    Adim7               A
And things seem hard or tough
    Adim7                A          F#7
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
        B                           E7
And you feel that you've had quite eno-u-u-u-ugh

       A                  Amaj7
Just remember that you're standing
     A6             A
on a planet that's evolving
                  A6 A#dim7   E7
And revolving at 900 miles an hour
                   Bm7        E7              Bm7
That's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned
  E7              Bm7       E7      A
A sun that is the source of all our power
                    Amaj7           A6                A
The sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
    F#7         A#dim7  F#7     Bm
Are moving at a million miles a day
      D            Adim7      A            F#7
In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour
       Bm        E7             A    (E7)
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 3000 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 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, at 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
