‘We are the Planets’

All Chorus

We are the planets of the solar system
Different Sizes for everyone
The music never ends, We are such good friends
And we all orbit the sun

Emma Middleton – Sun

We call the sun, rapping first on this track from the beginning.
I’m the centre of the solar system planets be spinnin’ around me
So hot ! I’m roasting you see, now I pass the mic to the planet closest to me

Sue Baker – Mercury

The smallest planet , small as earth’s Moon, Yo !
I get super-hot and cold and I spin very slow

Lisa Oliver – Venus

I’m Venus, I’ve got mountains and volcanos that spray
I’m the same size as Earth but spin the opposite way

Ruth Hart – Earth

Yeah, I’m Earth. I’m the home to every boy and girl
Such a beautiful, beautiful world !!!

Lawrence Cottingham – Mars

I’m Mars , the red planet I’ve got deserts and ice
and I’ve got 2 moons that’s like one moon twice !!

Sam Baker – Jupiter

I’m Jupiter, the biggest planet
I’m humongous, gargantuan
I spin the fastest, rap the fastest
Plus I’m handsome. Blam, Son!

Steve Walker – Saturn

Oh Please ! I’m Saturn
Check out my beautiful rings
Made up of rocks , dust and other things

Dave Pearce – Uranus

I’m Uranus, I say that with pride
Ok , I lied ! I’m embarrassed
Because I’m the only planet lying on its side

Josh England – Neptune

I’m Neptune. I’m cold, dark, windy and mysterious.
I’m very stormy , so bring an umbrella , I’m serious

ALL REPEAT THE CHORUS

Any queries please give us a call or email. I will forward the schedule separately and also what you need to claim for the concerts.

Best wishes

Jane
