The Lyrics

Galileo, (Galileo), Galileo, (Galileo)

Galileo looked above him
And the theories of Copernicus
Were confirmed through observation, world views turned to dust

Galileo, caused a problem
And the patience of the Church was tried
Papal fallibility implied, bishops defied

Revelations... stunned the minds of the day
Described the galaxy, celestial mysteries
Holy heavens, dogma carried away
His writings they denounced, and locked him in his house

But Galileo (Galileo)
Man of science (Man of science)
Under guard, condemned of heresy
Kept on working till his death, uncovering mysteries

Galileo, (Galileo)
Galileo, (Galileo), he-lio-cen-tri-ci-ty
