There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I present the song exactly as it is played in the film. 
Notice I subbed C#dim for A#dim in the first chord. 
That's because C#dim (XX2323) is easier to play than A#dim
and sounds almost exactly the same on guitar. 
It's up to you which you would prefer to play, but A#dim is the true chord name.


C#dim                  A#
Whenever life gets you down, Missus Brown
A#dim                         A#
and things seem hard or tough
A#dim                    A#            G 
and people seem useless, obnoxious, or daft
        C                          Cm        F
and you feel that you've had quite eno-o-o-o-ough

F    F7
Just re  -  
A#                 A#maj7        Gm             Gm7               
member that you're standing on a planet that's evolving 
      Gm7        Gm                    F
and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
F                                                   F7
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned
F                 F7                A#
A sun that is the source of all our power
A#                  A#maj7         Gm                Gm7
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
G                               Cm
Are moving at a million miles a day
      D#           D#7           A#                G
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour
       C7        F        F7     A#7
Of the galaxy we call the 'milky way'

A#dim A# G Cm F A# F

A#           A#maj7          Gm                Gm7    
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
       Gm7              Gm                  F
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side
F                                                     F7
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
           F             F7                         A#
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide
A#                  A#maj7             Gm               Gm7
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
       G                               Cm
We go 'round every two hundred million years
        D#        D#7         A#          G
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
         C7         F     F7     A#7
In this amazing and expanding universe

bridge (waltz style):
G Gmaj7 Bm Em D
D D7 C D7 G
G Gmaj7 E E7 C
Cm A#  (F A# F7 F7)

A#             A#maj7         Gm            Gm7               
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
   Gm7        Gm                    F
In all of the directions it can whizz
    F                     F7
As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know
F                      F7                    A#
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
   A#                    A#maj7       Gm           Gm7
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure
     G                         Cm
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
   D#                 D#7              A#              G
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
               C7          F   F7      A#7
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth
