The Lyrics

I did detect your presence back in ‘82
Galactic supernova too good to be true
I always wondered: what happened to you?

Oh-a-oh

Then just last year I got a brand new CCD
I could inquire some more with new technology
Then like a lightning bolt the answer came to me

Oh-a-oh

Fusion stagnated

Oh-a-oh

You detonated

Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star

Supergiant Type O Star
Oh-a-a-a-oh

And when your fuel supply of hydrogen did go
Then stopped the outward force that comes with fusion’s glow
And underneath your own weight you implode

Oh-a-oh

You time was over

Oh-a-oh

You supernova

Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Outshining the Galaxy, expanding cloud of space debris

Oh-a-a-a-oh
Oh-a-a-a-oh

Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star

Ten million year old Type O Star
A blast to which there is no par
You leave an interstellar scar

Ta-Ta my Giant O Star
Ta-Ta my Giant O Star

Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star
Gravity killed the Giant O Star….

Bugger! There was another line after interstellar scar should have been "Fusion died and broke your heart" Cheers folks

Loved the angle. You've inspired me to try my own parodies to help my kids learn science. Great job.
