Galaxy Song For Accoustic Guitar v1 Monty Python
[A]member that you're s[Amaj7]tanding on a pla[A6]net that's evolv[A]ing
[F#m7]revolving at nine-hundred miles an hou[Em7]r
and orbiting at n[Bm7]ineteen miles a s[Em7]econd, so it's reck[Bm7]oned,
a [Em7]sun that is the sou[Bm7]rce of all our [A]power.
[A]Now the sun and you [Amaj7]and me, and all the [A6]stars that we ca[A]n see
[F#m7]Are moving a million miles a d[Em7]ay
[D]In an outer spiral [D]ar[dim]m at forty tho[A]usand miles an ho[F#m7]ur
of the ga[Bm7]laxy we cal[Em7]l the Milky Wa[A]y.
(chords same for all verses)
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred million stars,
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.
We're thiry thousand light-years from galactic central point
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
and our galaxy itself is one of millions of billions in this
Amazing and Expanding Universe
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
in all of the directions it can whizz,
as fast as it can go, the speed of light, y'know,
twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is,
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
