Nine Fine Planets
J.P. Taylor

This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singing' Songs of Science II

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

Planet number one is the closest to the Sun
And Mercury is its name
It’s a tiny little spot with a surface that’s so hot
And a metal’s got a name that’s the same

Now planet number two is an easy one to view
And bright as any star you can see
Venus is the same as the goddess with that name
She’s a beauty of a planet you’ll agree

Planet number three is the place for you and me
It’s the planet that we all call home
It’s got air and water too, and some land for me and you
Yeah Earth’s the place we call our own

We’ve got nine, we’ve got nine, nine fine planets
(in the solar system)
We’ve got nine, we’ve got nine, nine fine planets
(in the solar system)

The fourth planet from the Sun is a reddish colored one
With two moons to call its own
Night and day’s a lot like ours, it’s the planet we call Mars
A neighbor pretty close to home

Planet number five is the biggest my oh my
With a big red spot on its face
It’s a spinning ball of gas, and it’s going round so fast
Yeah, Jupiter’s quite a place

Now planet number six has really got some tricks
Saturn is a sight to see
But the really special thing is Saturn’s famous rings
A telescopic treat for you and me


The seventh planet out makes you want to jump and shout
Uranus is big and blue
It’s spinning on its side, there’s no way for it to hide
What a strange thing for a planet to do

Planets eight and nine play a game from time to time
Neptune and Pluto like to play
They’re so far from the Sun it’s hardly noticed by anyone
When they change places along the way

Well I’m glad you came along and joined us in this song
About the planets going round the Sun
Yeah, we went from one to nine, and really made good time
And now our song is almost done
