The Galaxy Song–Eric Idle

One of my all-time favorite Eric Idle songs. In the sketch from The Meaning of Life, Eric Idle plays the mysterious man in pink who emerges unexpectedly from the housewife's fridge. This song is part The Galaxy Songof some cosmic sales pitch to convince the woman to donate her liver to an unsavory fellow sent to her home to collect on demand. The song puts everything into neat perspective and is pure genius.

I have included the lyrics to help appreciate the marvelous lyrics by Eric Idle. I especially enjoyed the conclusion!

  1. I loved Monty Python. Absolutely brilliant and there has never been anything since that's anywhere near as good. Did you ever see "Life of Brian"? Hilarious x

  2. It gets better every time I see it!

  3. Totally agree - very good lyrics and very funny song.
