A mad world for sure

 So I have said this before and I will say it again.

The world is mad.

I sold my old taxi once and  I forgot to take off the discs attached to the front and back windows.

You must pay for it to be reprinted and then we have to destroy the old discs and issue you with new ones.

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs.BrownAnd things seem hard or toughAnd people are stupid, obnoxious or daftAnd you feel that you've had quite enough
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolvingAnd revolving at nine hundred miles an hourThat's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckonedA sun that is the source of all our power
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can seeAre moving at a million miles a dayIn an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hourOf the galaxy we call the 'milky way'
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion starsIt's a hundred thousand light years side to sideIt bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thickBut out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central pointWe go 'round every two hundred million yearsAnd our galaxy is only one of millions of billionsIn this amazing and expanding universe
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expandingIn all of the directions it can whizzAs fast as it can go, the speed of light, you knowTwelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecureHow amazingly unlikely is your birthAnd pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space'Cause it's bugger all down here on Earth
