The Lyrics

Even worse than yesterday's effort to the same song this silly little ditty spawned from Agrimorfee's comment about towels and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe, though the towel got lost during the write so I guess I'm screwed now. (For the same reason as yesterday the parody title is taken from the fourth line of the chorus).
Is the answer 42?
Is the answer 42?

It'll be years in millions
A 'puter big as Earth
Long before we get the truth
Deep Thought said the answer's 42

Is the answer 42?
Well the mice want proof to go
And they want my brain, though slow
Though Deep Thought said the answer's 42

The simplest of announcements
Improbable but true
Don't ponder life 'til you are blue
Cos Deep Thought said the answer's 42

Is the answer 42?
Is the answer 42?
Well we need a 'puter new
The question we now badly need...

Are the calculations skewed?
When in space that's life for you
With Vogons chasing you
Deep Thought said the answer's 42

*The chorus keeps ticking on over and over, but I'll assure you it will stop no later than at the end of the Universe*
