Galaxy Song.

Just remember that you’re standingOn a planet that’s evolvingAnd revolving at nine hundred miles an hourThat’s orbiting at nineteen miles a secondSo it’s reckonedThe sun that is the source of all our power
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can seeAre moving at a million miles a dayIn an outer spiral arm, at four hundred thousand miles an hourIn the galaxy we call the Milky Way
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion starsIt’s a hundred thousand light years side to sideIt bulges in the middle, six thousand light years thickBut out by us, it’s just a thousand light years wide
We’re thirty thousand light years from galactic central pointWe go ’round every two hundred million yearsAnd our galaxy is only one of millions of billionsIn this amazing and expanding universe
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expandingIn all of the directions it can whizzAs fast as it can go, of the speed of light, you knowTwelve million miles a minute and that’s the fastest speed there is
So remember, when you’re feeling very small and insecureHow amazingly unlikely is your birthAnd pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere out in space‘Cause it’s bugger all down here on Earth!
