365 Days of Astronomy Song

I just recently put the link to a year long podcast 365 days of astronomy on the links sideways, as you can see. I also found its “official song” (hat tip badastronomy)

If you are interested in this guy, you can check out his blog.

Here is the lyric:

You ponder the universe and a look comes ‘cross your face
You try to fathom distances of all the stuff in space
But you can’t wrap the bacon of your mind around the fig
Of all the terms required to describe how big is big

So let me get specific, and use words scientific
Go whip out your thesaurus, for this exacting chorus

This stuff is far, [it’s really far] this stuff is far far far away
We’re talkin’ far, [like über far] you can’t get there by car in a day
It’s super duper crazy far but not just pulsars quasars and stars
I mean it’s far, far, far, if there’s some doubt listen to us shout [THIS STUFF IS FAR]

I sense all the explosions going off inside your brain
As your mind gets blown by what I just did explain
Sorry if my words might drive you all insane
But that’s what happens when precision is your middle name

So with an exacting factor, like some sextant or protractor
Using details quite semantic, I’ll show how huge is this gigantic

CHORUS

…far too big to explain in any concise ways,
it might just have to take 365 days

I hope that I have offered up some technical assistance
And haven’t caused your ticker too much ventrical resistance
But you have got to listen and trust my insistence
That I am very accurately describing the distance

CHORUS
