Family of the Sun
Song for Teaching About The Planets
Foster Brown


This song is available on Foster Brown's Naturally: Children's Nature Songs

This song is also available on Songs from a Naturalist's Notebook

IMPORTANT NOTE: This album was created before Pluto was declared not to be a planet.

Have you ever noticed in the sky
A billion of stars in the dark, dark night?
The family of the sun in our Milky Way,
Nine planets spinning night day

Mecury, Venus, Earth and Mars:
The first four planets amidst the stars.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus too,
Neptune and Pluto are the last two.

Mercury’s the closest to the sun,
No water or air and not much fun.
Moving to Venus would be a big mistake,
Full of poisonous gases and lava lakes.

The Earth we know is the best of all,
with water and air on the big blue ball.
Mars is windy and full of dust,
Iron in the rocks give it the color of rust.

Mecury,Venus, Earth and Mars:
The first four planets amidst the stars.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus too,
Neptune and Pluto are the last two.

Jupiter’s huge and made of gas
With hurricane storms that never pass.
Saturn’s known for her many rings
made up of ice and rock and dusty things.

Uranus spins upon her side,
Neptune has winds that drive you wild.
Pluto’s the smallest and furthest out,
So now that you know them, sing them, don’t shout.

Mecury,Venus, Earth and Mars:
The first four planets amidst the stars.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus too,
Neptune and Pluto are the last two.
