The Lyrics

If you haven't read any of the books in the 'HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY' series, then this won't make much sense. Enjoy, all you Vogon-haters.
Arthur, you frood
Though your house and home will be demolished
Please come drink with me

Arthur, you’re spent
Don’t forget Earth
Arthur, you Dent

Stick your thumb out,
you silly guy,
Those are VO-GONS.
When you find that things are improbable,
help yourself get to forty-two, ‘cause that’s the answer, silly dude.

Take a ride in this bistro,
I won’t lie, I’m from Betelgeuse
Don’t be obtuse
Now let’s vamoose
Here’s your towel, DO NOT LOSE

Zaphod ran out,
while Marvin moped,
Trillian’s gone.
When you find yourself in the galaxy,
Guides advice that to panic is what you should NOT DO, listen good.

Arthur, come taste
This right here is called a gargle-blaster,
please save some for me.

Arthur, cave man
fly away, don’t
Arthur save man

Excellent book, disappointing movie. Nice parody-5s for ya!

:) You managed to get rather a lot of H2G2 ideas into not many lyrics at all.. I look forward to the video (which will presumably be a spaceship flying into a sun which then explodes for no valid reason)

Ford Prefect in the TV series had something of late 60's Macca about him - that 'get on with it' ethos.
