"The Universe Song" by Eric Idle
Attention kids! Watch that potty mouth. The saying "bugger-all" in the last verse is a swear in UK English. Try replacing it with "none at all" or "not a speck", or come up with your own saying.

Introduction:
(spoken)

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
And things seem sad or tough
And people are useless, or obnoxious, or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite enough...

Verse 1:

[G7]Just re-
[C]member that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
revolving at nine-hundred miles an [G7]hour
and orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
a sun that is the source of all our [C]power.
Now the sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are [A7]moving a million miles a [F]day
In an [F7]outer spiral arm at forty [C]thousand miles an hour
of the [G7]galaxy we call the Milky [C]Way.

Verse 2:

[C]Our galaxy itself contains a hundred million stars,
it's a hundred thousand light-years side to [G7]side,
it bulges in the middle, sixty thousand light-years thick,
but out by us it's just three thousand light-years [C]wide.
We're thiry thousand light-years from galactic central point
We go [A7]'round every two hundred million [F]years,
and our [F7]galaxy itself is one of [C]millions of billions in this
A[G7]mazing and Expanding Uni[C]verse!

Verse 3:

[C]The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
in all of the directions it can [G7]whiz,
as fast as it can go, the speed of light, y'know,
twelve million miles a minute, and that's the [C]fastest speed there is,
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How a[A7]mazingly unlikely is your [F]birth,
And [F7]pray that there's intelligent life [C]somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's [G7]bugger-all down here on [C]Earth.
