The Solar System

(to the tune of "This Old Man")

Mercury, number one.

It is closest to the sun.



With a round, round, go around

Planets 'round the sun

Sing about them everyone.


Venus bright, number two.

Morning and evening "star" we view.


Planet Earth, number three.

We live on it, you and me.


Planet Mars, number four.

Named for a roman god of war.


Number five, Jupiter.

Colored clouds around it stir.


Number six, big Saturn.

Many rings around it turn.


Number seven, Uranus.

It looks blue and green to us.

Number eight, stormy Neptune.

Triton is its frozen moon.


Number nine, tiny Pluto.

Farthest from the sun, you know.
