Lyrics

People once thought the sun turned round the Earth,
but the motions of the planets were too cryptic.
Copernicus caught on we turn around the sun
so now the planets’ orbits are elliptic. We go...

Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round

Moons dance round the planets dance round the sun.
The sun exerts some influence to enlist 'em.
Newton knew it takes the pull of gravity
to twist and twirl us through the solar system. We go...

Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round

Picture yourself rolling head over feet
on a carnival ride in a twirling seat
at the end of an arm swinging up through an arc,
which circles you and circles you high above the park,
which rotates with the surface of the planet you’re on,
which revolves in giant loop de loops around the sun,
which spirals toward the center of the galaxy you’re in,
expanding through a universe where everything spins!

Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round

Now see if you can sit completely still
while pondering this scientific notion:
From electrons in your brain to massive supernova stars,
every chunk of matter stays in motion!

We go...
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy
Roundy round roundy round roundy round
