It makes me dizzy when I think
About how life began
Some people think it started
With a big almighty BANG
Out of a tiny pin-head
Came everything we see
The moon, the planets and the sun
The Earth, the sky and sea
I find this makes my head go WHOOSH
But what makes me feel worse
Is when they say that from that dot
Sprung our great Universe
But how did all of space and time
Come out of just a dot?
They must have squeezed and squashed them down
Then tied them with a knot
Okay so let’s imagine now
This dot blew like a bomb
It spat the Universe right out
Where did that dot come from? ? ? ? ?
