The Planet Song

Well the Sun's a hot star,

Mercury's hot, too.

Venus is the brightest planet,

Earth's home to me and you.

Mars is the red one,

And Jupiter's most wide.

Saturn's got those icy rings,

And Uranus spins on its side.

Neptune's really windy,

And Pluto's not one by law.

Well we wanted to name the planets,

And now we've named them all.
