  • In the 32 years since the original 'Galaxy Song' from "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" (Universal, 1983), the science we know about the galaxy has changed somewhat, so some of the measurements in this song had to be corrected for the 2015 version. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
    and things seem hard or tough
    and people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
    and you feel that you've had quite enough....

    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
    And revolving at 900 miles an hour,
    That's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's 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 arm at 400,000 miles an hour
    In the galaxy we call the Milky Way

    Our galaxy itself contains 500 billion stars
    It's 100,000 light years side to side
    It bulges in the middle, 6,000 light years thick
    But out by us it's just 1,000 light years wide

    We're 30,000 light years from galactic central point
    We go round every 200 million years
    And our galaxy is only 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 whiz
    As fast as it can go, at the speed of light you know
    12 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
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
