Planets Song
(to the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")
I know the planets one by one
Starting with the one that's closest to the sun.
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars,
Are the first four among the stars.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune
Are the next planets in my tune.
Pluto's the farthest one from the sun.
I know the planets one by one.
