Lyrics to the Songs

The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection

or the Survival of (R)Evolutionary Theories in the face of Scientific and Ecclesiastical Objections:

being a Musical Comedy about Charles Darwin (1809-1882)


Here, primarily to aid your enjoyment of the soundtrack CD you may have purchased at a performance of ‘The Origin of Species...’, is an anthology of the lyrics to all of the play’s seven songs.  (Ignore the dates under the song names - can’t get rid of them.)

The CD has now sold out in physical form, but you can buy the songs digitally (or just stream them for free) at Bandcamp.
