Lyrics: The Sun & the Moon & the stars Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune Not to mention all of their moons Eight planets, one sun This is the way our Solar System runs Eight planets, one sun This is the way our Solar System runs Mercury, first planet, the smallest one Also the planet closest to the Sun Twice a year, you can see it in the sky No telescope needed, just use your eye It's made out of rocks and metal you see Just chilling on its axis terrestrially It orbits the Sun in 87 Earth days This means a shorter time between birthdays Venus, the 2nd planet from the Sun Believe it or not, it's the hottest one 800 degrees is the average temp It's called the Morning Star, sometimes you get a glimpse of it Shining brightly in our atmosphere One day on Venus is longer than its year That sounds strange, but the fact is It's rotating very slowly on its axis The Sun & the Moon & the stars Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune Not to mention all of their moons Earth, the 3rd planet from the Sun The only one that we've found life on Like people, animals, plants, birds and fish Without Earth's water, life wouldn't exist Earth has one moon that lights up the night sky Its gravitational pull causes tides to rise Earth is the planet with the most water And its yearly orbit? 365 and a quarter Mars, the 4th planet from the sun It's the Red Planet, the last terrestrial one Its gravitational pull is much lighter If you were there, you could jump 3 times higher And just like Earth, Mars has seasons Its axis is tilted, that's the main reason To orbit the Sun, it takes Mars two years! And its deserts actually have ice, that's kinda weird Inside the Milky Way Galaxy Our Solar System gives you so many things to see Jupiter, from the sun the 5th planet The first gas giant, man, it's gigantic! It's the largest planet in our Solar System You can fit over 300 Planet Earths in it! It has a Great Red Spot from stormy skies Discovered by astronomers in 1665 With over 60 moons and short days Jupiter is different in a lot of ways Saturn, the 6th planet from the Sun It's the 2nd gas giant, the cool-looking one With the rings around it, made of dust and ice And they're huge, over 8,000 miles wide! It has the fastest winds of all the planets 150 moons & even smaller moonlets It takes 29 years to round the Sun And Saturn's rings make it a truly unique one The Sun & the Moon & the stars Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune Not to mention all of their moons Uranus, 7th planet from the sun The opposite of Venus, it's the coldest one Its axis is the most unique thing of all It makes Uranus rotate like a bowling ball It's the lightest of the gas giants It takes 84 Earth years just to make its orbit Some people say its name a different way But we'll stick with Uranus if that's okay Neptune, 8th planet from the Sun A bright blue planet, also an icy one For centuries, people didn't know that it existed It's not that big, so we can see how they missed it It's the smallest of the four gas giants With quite a bit of mass and a very active climate It's a big ball of hydrogen and helium Sitting at the very far end of the Solar System Inside the Milky Way Galaxy Our Solar System gives you so many things to see Last but not least, let's talk about the Sun It's the star at the center of our Solar System Responsible for all of Earth's weather and climate So big that 1 million Earths could fit inside of it! It's a huge burning ball of gases Don't even try to look at it without protective glasses It supplies the Earth with heat and light The Sun keeps the seasons of the Earth working right The Sun & the Moon & the stars Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune Not to mention all of their moons Solar System, it's the Solar System Hey you, it's the Solar System Copyright 2016 Silly School Songs.
