The Universe Songs

Hello everybody!
Now it is time to test our singing abilities.

Here you have two nice songs to learn new vocabulary and grammar and above all, to have fun!


Galaxy Song by Monthy Python



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 nine hundred miles an hour
That's orbiting at nineteen 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 forty thousand miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the 'milky way'


Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide


We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
We go 'round every two hundred 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 whizz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know
Twelve 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

Serenade Song by Steve Miller band







Did you see the lights 
as they fell all around you 
did you hear the music 
serenade from the stars 


Wake up, wake up 
wake up and look around you 
we're lost in space 
and the time is our own 


Whoa, whoa 
iiiiiiiiii 


Did you feel the wind 
as it blew all around you 
did you feel the love 
that was in the air 


Wake up, wake up 
wake up and look around you 
we're lost in space 
and the time is our own 


Whoa, whoa 
iiiiiiiiii 


The sun comes up 
and it shines all around you 
you're lost in space 
and the earth is your own 


Whoa, whoa 
whoa
