"The Galaxy Song"
(helpful cross-reference: Size of the Universe)

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

And it'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.

<waltz>

The universe itself keeps on expanding
and expanding, In all of the directions
it can whiz;

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!

The classic "Every Sperm is Sacred" song from the
classic Monty Python movie "The Meaning of Life" ...

"Every Sperm is Sacred"
(helpful cross-reference: Beginning of Human Life)

There are Jews in the world, there are Buddhists,
there are Hindus and Mormons and then
there are those that follow Mohammed -but-
I've never been one of them.

I am a Roman Catholic
and have been since before I was born,
and the one thing they say about Catholics is
they'll take you as soon as you're warm.

You don't have to be a six-footer.
You don't have to have a great brain.
You don't have to have any clothes on, you're
a Catholic the moment dad came

...Because...

Every sperm is sacred,
every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate. (2x)

Let the heathens spill theirs,
on the dusty ground.
God shall make them pay for
each sperm that can't be found.

Every sperm is wanted,
every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed,
in your neighborhood.

Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
spill theirs just anywhere
but God loves those who treat their
semen with more care.

Every sperm is sacred,
every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred,
every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed,
in your neighborhood.

Every sperm is useful,
every sperm is fine.
God needs everybody's,
mine, and mine, and mine.

Let the pagans spill theirs
on mountain, hill, and plain.
God shall strike them down for
each sperm that's spilled in vain.

Every sperm is sacred,
every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed,
in your neighborhood.

Every sperm is sacred,
every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.
