THE GALAXY SONG  (Eric Idle of Monty Python)

Am7-5 Bb Whenever life gets you down Mrs Brown
Am7-5 BbAnd things seem hard or tough
Am7-5 Bb G7And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
Cm F7 F6 FAnd you feel like you've had quite enou-ou-ou-ou-ough...
Bb Dm Gm BbJust remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
FAnd revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
F7That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned
F BbA sun that is the source of all our power
Bb Dm Gm BbThe sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
G7 CmAre moving at a million miles a day
Eb Ebm Bb Gm7In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour
Cm F BbOf the galaxy we call the Milky Way
Turnaround: |Eb Ebm|Bb Gm |Cm F |Bb F |
Bb Dm Gm BbOur galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
FIt's a hundred thousand light years side to side
F7It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
F BbBut out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide
Bb Dm Gm BbWe're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
G7 CmWe go round every two hundred million years
Eb Ebm Bb Gm7And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
Cm F BbIn this amazing and expanding universe
Instrumental to verse chords, but in 6/8 Time: |Bb Dm |Gm Bb | |F | |F7 | |F |Bb |
|Bb Dm |Gm Bb |G7 |Cm |[Ritarduendo and Rubato]:
|Eb Ebm|Bb |Cm F |Bb F | [Fermata on last chord] Back to Cut Common Time:
Bb Dm Gm BbThe universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
FIn all of the directions it can whizz
F7As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know
F BbTwelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is
Bb Dm Gm BbSo remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure
G7 CmHow amazingly unlikely is your birth
Eb Ebm Bb Gm7And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Cm F Bb'Cos there's bugger-all down here on Earth
