Chumbawamba - Charlie

I have wanted to post this song on the blog for a few months now, and I finally found it online: a beautiful celebration of the intellectual legacy of Charles Darwin



All of nature in its place
By hand of the designer, 
Comes our Charlie spins the world
From here to Asia Minor. 
In between the Platypus
And perfect Aphrodite, 
Charlie come with opposing thumb
To question the Almighty.

Over the river and over the sea
Through holy storm and thunder
Steer a course for a brave new world
Of common sense and wonder. 

See the dancing President
The congressman and teacher
Jumpin’ to the music of
The wealthy Midwest preacher,
Charlie come with a brand new dance
Get on the floor and follow, 
Find yourself a partner and
We’ll swing into tomorrow. 

Over the river and over the sea
Through holy storm and thunder
Steer a course for a brave new world
Of common sense and wonder.

Armed with truth we’re stepping out
Come join the worldwide party, 
Charge your glass and face the world
We’ll drink a toast to Charlie. 

Over the river and over the sea
Through holy storm and thunder
Steer a course for a brave new world
Of common sense and wonder.
Totally catchy, isn't it?
