The Family of the Sun

(Tune of: Farmer in the Dell) Courtesy of NASA Museum
The family of the Sun,
The family of the Sun.
Here are nine planets in
The family of the Sun.

1. Mercury is hot,
And Mercury is small.
Mercury has no atmosphere.
Its just a rocky ball.

2. Venus has thick clouds,
That hide what is below.
The air is foul, the ground is hot,
It rotates very slow.
3. We love the Earth, our home,
Its oceans and its trees.
We eat its food, we breathe its air,
So no pollution, please.

4. Mars is very red.
Its also dry and cold
Someday you might visit Mars
If you are really bold.

5. Great Jupiter is big.
We've studied it a lot.
We found that it has 16 moons
And a big red spot.

6. Saturn has great rings.
We wondered what they were.
Now we know they're icy rocks
Which we saw as a blur. (Refrain)
7. Uranus and Neptune
We don't know much about.
Maybe you will study them
And then we'll all find out.

8. Pluto's last in line.
The family of the Sun,
It's farthest from the Sun.
The family of the Sun,
It's small and cold and icy too
There are nine planets and
To land there won't be fun.
Now our journeys done!
