The Lyrics

Magrathea is a planet that's inhabitants create planets for the wealthy from the books and film "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy". It's also the planet where the super computer Deep Thought can be found.
Verse 1: They head to Deep Thought
It is rusted and lonely
It has all the answers
It’s the one and only
Want the answer, just the clue
Thought Deep Thought was joking
When she said forty-two

Verse 2: Was no one in sight
Just a great computer
But there’s frozen people
Deep down in the surface
They say forty-two, what’s that show?
Arthur’s got the question buried inside his dome

Chorus: Magrathea! Touched down!
It’s empty…

Verse 3: It had production
It was world producing
They say, “Oh no poor folks”
They were planet makers
They had cash flow that you can’t believe
Went in cryo-slumber
Post bad economy

Chorus: Magrathea! Went down!
Still wealthy…

Verse 4: They’re sculpting mountains
They are forest planting
They are using water
They are ocean fillers
They say for a price, make one for me
Got to make the big bucks
To be a planet king

Chorus: Magrathea! Right now!
Make me king!

Outro: Magrathea! Yeah! Magrathea! Yeah!
Magrathea! Yeah! Magrathea! Yeah!
Magrathea! Yeah! Magrathea! Yeah!
Magrathea! Yeah! Magrathea! Yeah!
Magrathea! Yeah! Magrathea! Yeah!

Excellent Blayde. I loves me a good parody to this song, and the whole thing is great, but the 1st verse especially is inspired. Thanks for addressing Deep Thought more fully for me. That was yet another gap in the project filled excellently.

This was fantastic I loved it! A fantastic addition to the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Beatles project that we've all been working on. This was almost as good as reading the book!

Matches the original vibe and structure well. That's a very good thing in this case. My favorite line is "Thought Deep Thought was joking when she said forty-two"

(ABC) A parody of my favourite Beatles song about one of my favourite sci-fi series? Ingenious! Perfect parody, B-man, 555 hyper-intelligent shades of blue!

Love the Beatles, have no idea what it is about however. The pacing was spot on, but I haven't the slightest idea about the subject matter.
