The Earth goes round the Sun

The Earth goes round the Sun

(on the music of "Shoe the Donkey")


The Earth goes round, Earth goes round,   

 The Earth goes round the Sun 

The Earth goes round, Earth goes round,   

 The Earth goes round the Sun 

The Earth goes round the Sun, the Earth goes round the Sun 

The Earth goes round the Sun, and Earth goes round the Sun 


The Moon goes round, Moon goes round,   

 The Moon goes round the Earth 

The Moon goes round, Moon goes round,   

 The Moon goes round the Earth 

The Moon goes round the Earth, the Earth goes round the Sun 

The Moon goes round the Earth, and Earth goes round the Sun 


Stop – and name the planets!


The planets go round, planets go round,   

 The planets go round the Sun 

The planets go round, planets go round,   

 The planets go round the Sun 

They all go round the Sun, they all go round the Sun

Around and around and around and around
