Just re[B]member that you're standing on a planet that's evolving And revolving at nine hundred miles an [F#]hour, That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, A sun that is the source of all our [B]power The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see Are [Ab]moving at a million miles a [C#m]day In an [E]outer spiral [Fdim]arm, at forty[B] thousand miles[Cdim] an hour, Of the [C#]galaxy we [F#]call the 'Milky [B]Way'.
Our [B]galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars. It's a hundred thousand light years side to [F#]side. It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick, But out by us, it's just three thousand light years [B]wide. We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point. We go [Ab]'round every two hundred million [C#m]years, And our [E]galaxy is [Fdim]only one of [B]millions [Cdim]of billions In this a[C#]mazing and ex[F#]panding uni[B]verse.
Instrumental solo: Same chords as the verse.
The [B]universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding In all of the directions it can [F#]whizz As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know, Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the [B]fastest speed there is. So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure, How a[Ab]mazingly unlikely is your [C#m]birth, And [E]pray that there's in[Fdim]telligent life [B]somewhere up [Cdim]in space, 'Cause there's [C#]bugger all [F#]down here on [B]Earth
