I have great fun with this song in my concerts; you can see my activity suggestions on the second page. I don’t try to do all eight planets due to space restrictions, and finish with the moon going around earth. But you certainly can keep it going!
Using the traditional tune makes it easy for everyone to join in the singing making it totally interactive. This song introduces the most basic concepts of our solar system, and is a great refresher for older children and adults as well.

Hi Ho, To Space We Go

The Sun is our daytime star, the Sun is our daytime star
Hi, ho, to space we go, the Sun is our daytime star

Mercury’s number one, Mercury’s number one
Hi, ho, to space we go, Mercury’s number one.

Venus is number two, Venus is number two
Hi, ho, to space we go, Venus is number two.

The Earth is third around, the Earth is third around
Hi, ho, to space we go, the Earth is third around.

The Moon goes round the Earth, the Moon goes round the Earth
Hi, ho, to space we go, the Moon goes round the Earth.
(Chorus)
