Those who are discerning and have great respect for learning

Know the secret I will now relate

Wise folk through the ages and the cultivated sages

All reached this conclusion by debate

Life has got its wonders and its cock-ups and its blunders

Ups and downs that drive you round the bend

But one fact is crystal that from John O’Groats  to Bristol

That it sll comes down to physics in the end


Chorus:

It all comes dow to physics in the end

It all comes down to physicvs my dear fried

Tucking into turkey or just chewing on beef jerk

it all comes down to physics in the end


Guillotines may frighten and may cause your throat to tighten

But in fact they really are humane

There’s no nervous flinches when that pressure per square inches

Quickly kills the source of all your pain

Gallic engineering had revolting peasants cheering

Watching giant razor blades descend

In the revolution the were a smart solution

And it all came down to physics in the end


Chorus:

It all comes down to physics in the end

It comes down to physics my dear friend

Taylor said to Burton, “When you do that draw the curtain”

It all comes down to physics in the end”


Bet you all a fiver if you are a thin skydiver

You’ve had lots of trouble in descent

Leave the plane in Leicester and you could end up in Chester

Maybe make a dreadful dent in Kent

Follow Isaac Newton for he’s cooler than Rasputin

You will float like leaves blown on the breeze

Newton’s observation -  to achieve your set location

Was to strap two heavy sandbags to your knees


Chorus:

Well it all comes down to physics in the end

It comes down to physics my dear friend

Pigeons all in flighty or wind up grandma’s nightie

It all comes down to physics in the end”


Big cheese Archimedes did a naked Grecian striptease

Day he solved a problem in his bath

Shouted out, “Eureka” and became the world’s first streaker

Sprinting naked by a Starbuck’s café

Last of all I’ll mention maybe bring to your attention

Thermos flasks that keep things cold or hot

They don’t need instruction they just make their own deduction

Well I think that’s ruddy awesome eh? Wot -wot?


Chorus:

Well it all comes down to physics in the end

It comes down to physics my dear friend

When flies hit your windscreen - you will hear a fly scream

It all comes down to physics in the end”


Ending:

   My good friend Edgar Briggs - died eating 50 figs

   He said, “It all comes down to physics in the end!”
