************************************************************************

[Verse 1]
C#dim                         G
      Whenever life gets you down, (Mrs. Brown)
    C#dim                 G
And things seem hard or tough,
    C#dim                     G         E7
And people are stupid, ob - noxious or daft,
         A7                             D7
And you feel that you've had quite e - nough------!


[Verse 2]
               G                 Gmaj7         G6                 G
Just ...re - member that you're standing on a planet that's e - volving,
           G               G6     G7       D7
And re - volving at nine hundred miles an hour,
                     Am7              D7             Am7
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
   D7              Am7                G    D7
A sun that is the source of all our power!


[Verse 3]
     G              Gmaj7             G6                G
The sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,
G * G/F# G/F       E            E7            Am          C         C#dim
             Are moving, at a million miles a day, in an outer spiral arm,
             G              E7           Am7       D7             G
At forty thousand miles an hour, of the galaxy we call the Milky way!

[Break]
  C#dim          G     E7      Am7    D7      G     D7
|  /  /  /  / |  /  /  /  / |  /  /   /  / |  /  /  /  / |


[Verse 4]
      G         Gmaj7              G6             G
Our galaxy it - self contains a hundred billion stars, 
        G               G6          G7      D7
Its a hundred thousand light years side-to-side,
                  Am7               D7                 Am7
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
            D7                    Am7                 G     D7
But, out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide!


[Verse 5]
        G             Gmaj7                  G6             G
We're thirty thousand light years from ga - lactic central point,
G * G/F# G/F      E               E7              Am
          We go 'round every two hundred million years,
          C       C#dim          G          E7
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions,
             Am7              D7            G
In this a - mazing and ex - panding uni - verse!


[Verse 6 - Instrumental in 3/4 time]
  E    Emaj7   E6    E       E     E6    E7   B7

[Verse 7 - Back to 4/4 time]
D7        G          Gmaj7               G6                G
The--- universe it - self keeps on ex - panding and ex - panding,
    G                 G6    G7       D7
In all of the di - rections it can whizz,
    D7            Am7       D7                 Am7
As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know,
         D7              Am7                     G
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is!


[Verse 8]
D7        G                  Gmaj7        G6              G
So re - member, when you're feeling very small and in - secure,
G * G/F# G/F       E            E7             Am
         How a - mazingly un - likely is your birth,
     C                      C#dim             G            E7
And pray that there's in - telligent life somewhere up in space,
                Am7        D7            G
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!
