Pluto

from the album

Long ago and late one night
A famous scientist looked into the sky
The image of a planet came
And Pluto was its name

Already around the sun
Eight more planets were having fun
Pluto joined to make it nine
But soon was left behind

Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Mars
All planets spinning below the stars
Uranus, Jupiter, Neptune, Earth
But poor Pluto lacks the girth

Now after intense debate
Scientists say of planets there are eight
Pluto’s fame will soon decline
Now that it’s not planet nine

Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Mars
Are flytraps, autos, or candy bars
Uranus, Jupiter, Neptune, Earth
But for Pluto there is no mirth

Long ago and late one night
A famous scientist looked into the sky
The image of a planet came
And Pluto was its name.
