THE GALAXY SONG

Eric Idle

4:4 Key:B

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'.

[E] [Fdim] [B] [Cdim] [C#] [F#] [B]

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
