Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started, wait
The earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool  Neanderthals developed tools 
We built a wall (we built the pyramids)
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries 
That all started with the big bang! Hey!

 Since the dawn of man is really not that long
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song
A fraction of a second and the elements were made
The bipeds stood up straight, the dinosaurs all met their fate
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and Pangea, see ya wouldn't wanna be ya
Set in motion by the same big bang!
It all started with the big bang!

It's expanding ever outward but one day
It will cause the stars to go the other way
 Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it won't be hurt
Our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang!

 Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
 Debating how we're here, they're catching deer (we're catching viruses)
 Religion or astronomy (Descartes or Deuteronomy)
It all started with the big bang!

 Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology 
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big bang!
