The Lyrics

Historical Note: In May 2002, Rubens Barrichello was forced to give up a win in Austria in order for his teammate, Michael Schumacher to claim victory and add to his already astounding points lead. This is known as following 'team rules'; a point of contention amongst Formula One racing fans. Bernie Ecclestone is the head of the body that organizes Formula One. He's also bloody wealthy (bugger).
The Formula One Galaxy Song - Ode To Austria - May 2002

Intro: WHENEVER LIFE GETS YOU DOWN, MR. ECCLESTONE,
AND THINGS SEEM HARD OR TOUGH, AND PEOPLE
ARE STUPID, OBNOXIOUS OR DAFT AND YOU FEEL
THAT YOU'VE HAD QUITE ENOUGH...

Just remember that you're driving on a planet that's evolving,
And there's lots of other drivers with other cars,
and lots of other stars and sponsors; many other sports,
and many of those sponsors watching other sports in bars.
The sun and you and me and all the sports stars we can see,
Make up a t.v. schedule so they say,
The satellite dish is a wonderous thing, from near and far it will always bring
the Universe we call the programming day.

Now your Galaxy itself contains just under 30 stars
Those 30 stars get paid so health-ily
Your bank account's are bulging, expanding credit limits,
But for the fans it's just a blackhole full of nothing, see.
They're 30 000 light years from paying all their rents,
if they're lucky they can go and buy some food
And their galaxy is only one of millions of billions
getting sucked into the t.v. habit dude.

The T.V. Universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can whizz.
As fast as it can go, fast as Rubens Barrichello,
12 million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly suprising was that win,

And the fans although a humble lot
Are deserving of more than what they got
So lets see you throw team rules in the bin.

REPRISE:
Let's see you throw
team rules
in the
bin.
