Hopefully this will help everyone.


[Verse]

     C       D              G   D/F#   Em
Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
            C                D         G         D/F#      Em
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
    C              D
The Earth began to cool,
    G          D/F#      Em
The autotrophs began to drool,
       C              D
Neanderthals developed tools,
           G          D/F#      Em
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
C              D        G         D/F#  Em
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
     C           D            G
That all started with the big bang!


[Verse]

           C       D              G   D/F#  Em
"Since the dawn of man" is really not that long,
         C          D              G            D/F#      Em
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song.
  C             D              G        D/F#  Em
A fraction of a second and the elements were made.
    C               D
The bipeds stood up straight,
    G              D/F#      Em
The dinosaurs all met their fate,
              C                  D
They tried to leap but they were late
             G          D/F#         Em
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
    C          D
The oceans and pangea
        G             D/F# Em
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya
       C             D        G
Set in motion by the same big bang!
       C                D   Am7
It all started with the big BANG!


[Bridge]

D       G             Em             Am7
It's expanding ever outward but one day
D        G                  Em            Am7
It will cause the stars to go the other way,
Am7        D              Am7              D
Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it wont be hurt
Am7           G/B                  C             D           
Our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang!


[Solo]

C   D   G  D/F#  Em   
C   D   G  D/F#  Em   


[Verse]

C        D             G           D/F#         Em
Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
C                  D                     G           D/F#       Em                             
Debating out while here they're catching deer (we're catching viruses)
C           D          G       D/F#   Em
Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy
   C           D        G
It all started with the big bang!
 C        D          G        D/F#    Em
Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology
   C           D        G
It all started with the big bang!
   C           D        G
It all started with the big BANG!
