Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Published by at 11:33 am under Blog


Little Miss talks about her flirtation with death today, but she doesn’t dwell, she doesn’t moan, she isn’t complaining or looking for sympathy. Instead she is asking us all to look for the positives in our lives and share them with her. So, whenever life gets you down and things seem hard or tough, and people are stupid, obnoxious, or daft, and you feel that you’ve had quite enough, what do you focus on and cling to to keep your smile on. Celebrate the positives in your life today. ๐Ÿ™‚


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, at 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.

– Monty Python

    @Tcup Yeah, me too. Saw Life of Brian recently in the Movies on the Square season. Great atmosphere.

    @YerMan Yeah, the punchline is the perfect payoff.
