Sung to: "Farmer in the Dell"

REFRAIN : The family of the Sun,
The family of the Sun,
Here are nine planets in
the family of the Sun.

Mercury is hot,
And Mercury is small.
Mercury has no atmosphere;
It's just a rocky ball.
REFRAIN
Venus has thick clouds
That hide what is below.
The air is foul; the ground is hot.
It rotates very slow.
REFRAIN
We love the Earth our home,
Its oceans and its trees.
We eat its food; we breathe its air,
So no pollution, please.
REFRAIN
Mars is very red.
It's also dry and cold.
Some day you might visit Mars
If you are really bold.
REFRAIN
Great Jupiter is big.
We've studied it a lot.
We found that it has lots of moons,
And a big, red spot.
REFRAIN
Saturn has great rings.
We wondered what they were.
Now we know they're icy rocks
Which we saw as a blur.
REFRAIN
Uranus is far.
It's cold and greenish-blue.
We found it rotates sideways,
And it has a lot of moons.
REFRAIN
Neptune has a spot;
A stormy patch of blue.
The planet has a lot of clouds
And rings around it, too.
REFRAIN
Pluto's last in line
It's farthest from the Sun.
It's small and cold and icy, too;
To land there won't be fun.
REFRAIN
