Sing to the tune of:† Eensy Weensy Spider
The planets and their moons and the sun up in the sky,
Make up our solar system stretching far and wide.
†The earth, and other planets, all spin around the sun.
What spins around the earth and is seen by everyone?
Round and round the earth spins a moon thatís all our own.
With mountains and craters that are as hard as stone.
The moon seems to change from full to very thin.
Did you notice it last night?† Did it look just like a grin?
A telescope is handy to look up in the sky.
As youíre looking through it, the stars will catch your eye.
You may see some stars that are dim and far away.
Can you name the star thatís closest and shines on us each day?
