=== The Universe Song ===

== Intro ==
When ever life gets you down Mrs Brown, and things seem hard or tough and people are 
stupid obnoxious and daft and you feel you have had (Sung) quite a enough.

== Verse I ==
D                        DMaj7            Bm               D
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
       Bm                  D7          A7
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.

== Verse II ==
 D                 DMaj7              Bm            D
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
      B7                        Em
Are moving at a million miles a day
      G7                   D
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
B7        Em         A7        D
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

== Verse III ==
D                 DMaj7            Bm        D
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
       Bm               D7                  A7
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.

== Verse IV ==
D                     DMaj7            Bm               D
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
                    B7              Em
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
      G7                D
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
B7        Em            A7       D
In this amazing and expanding universe.

== Instrumental ==
Played at a slower tempo, best if picked -
D DMaj7 Bm D
B7 Em G7 D
B7 Em A7 D

== Verse V ==
D             DMaj7          Bm              D
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
   Bm           D7              A7
In all of the directions it can whizz
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.

== Verse VI ==
D                 DMaj7          Bm             D
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
              B7                Em
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
    G7                 D                               B7
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Em                     A7           D
Can there’s bugger all down here on earth
