Planets Song Lyrics:

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun

Venus comes next it's the hottest one

Earth comes third the only life that we know

Mars has the largest canyon and volcano

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune

The gassy planet Jupiter, the largest you will find

Saturn has rings around the outside

Uranus is funny ‘cause it spins on its side

Neptune looks blue, the coldest of its kind

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune

Okay get ready We're gonna say all the planets really, really, really fast

Can you keep up?

We're gonna say all the planets from the first to the last
