Mr. R.'s Planet Song
(my very elegant mother, just seved uncooked nachos!)

if youtube is blocked, watch it here planet song



LYRICS

Well, I know there are 8 planets,
But which comes first and last? 
I need a little planet trick,
To help me learn them fast!

My Very Elegant Mother,
Just served uncooked nachos!
And we don’t want to eat them,
They’re cold like grandpa’s toes!
My Very Elegant Mother,
Just served uncooked nachos!

And that’s the order of the planets,
This is how they go…

Mercury and Venus,
Our Mother Earth then Mars,
Jupiter and Saturn,
They’re gas giants in the stars!
Uranus and there’s Neptune
And now you’ve said them all,
Well Pluto used to be a planet,
Now it’s way too small…
 
Well, I know there are 8 planets,
But which comes first and last? 
I need a little planet trick,
To help me learn them fast!

The first letter of each word in the sentence,
My very elegant mother,
Just Served Uncooked nachos,
Are the same as the first letters of the planets in our solar system-

My Very Elegant Mother,
Just served uncooked nachos!
And that’s the order of the planets,
This is how they go!

Mercury and Venus,
Mother Earth and Mars,
Jupiter and Saturn,
They’re  gas giants in the stars!
Uranus and there’s Neptune
Now you’ve said them all,
Well Pluto used to be a planet,
Now it’s way too small…

My Very Elegant Mother,
Just served uncooked nachos!
And now it’s red like Rudolph’s,
Like Rudolph’s when it snows!

My Very Elegant Mother,
Just served uncooked nachos!

And that’s the order of the planets,
That is how they go!
