When youíre feeling inside out and insecure,
and life keeps getting you down.
When all lifeís daily worries∑hurry through your head.
You donít want to even ∑get up.
You just lie around in bed.
When you feel you just canít take it anymore
And you wonder what on earth it is all foryour love lifeís like a war zone
Your tvís on the blinkitís enough to drive a drinking man to stop and take a think
Just remember that you standing on a planet thatís evolving,revolving at 900
Miles an hour.itís orbiting at 19 miles a second, so itís reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day.
In an outer spiral orb, at 40,000 miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the milky way
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
Itís a 100,000 light years side to side
It bulges in the middle 16,000 light years thick,
But out by us itís just 3,000 light years wide.
Weíre 30,000 light years from galactic central point.
We go round every 200,000,000 years.
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.
Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whiz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know, 12,000,000 miles a minute,
And thatís the fastest speed there is!
So, remember when youíre feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth.
And pray that thereís intelligent life somewhere up in space,
Ďcause Iím afraid that weíve been cheated here on earth.
