F dim                          B
        Whenever life gets you down mrs brown
    Fdim                B
And things seem hard or tough
    Fdim                 B          G#7
and people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
        C#m                        F#7    F#aug
and you feel like youve had quite enough

       B
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
                                       F#
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
                                    B
A sun that is the source of all our power

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
    G#                          C#m
Are moving at a million miles a day
      E            Fdim          B/F#              Cdim
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
       C#        F#              B
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

link: E   Fdim   B/F#   Cdim   C#   F#   B

    B
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
                                            F#
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.

It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
                                                    B
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.

We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
      G#                               C#m
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
        E         Fdim        B/F#        Cdim
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
         C#           F#         B
In this amazing and expanding universe.

String solo: Same chords as the verse

    B
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
                                F#
In all of the directions it can whizz

As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
                                              B
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
     G#                        C#m
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
    E                   Fdim           B/F#            Cdim
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
               C#         F#           B
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth

I'll comment - if and when Version 3 arrives, take a look at that :-) I've just transcribed it starting from scratch and come up with a few differences to your one here.

Please do, I just discovered this song and love it. That Fdim is a $@^% to learn and get comfortable with, but it sounds great :-)
