The Lyrics

The Catherine in this song is Catherine Cesarsky, president of the International Astonomical Union (IAU), which demoted Pluto. The General Assembly is their triennial meeting.
Catherine got run over by a spaceship
walking home from the General Assembly,
Now, you may say there is no planet Pluto,
but as for the IAU, well, they believe!

She'd been drinking too much whiskey,
and we begged her not to go,
but she forgot her presentation
distracted by all the partying in Rio

When we found her the next morning
at the scene of the attack,
she had laser burns all over
and an incriminating "PL" on her back!

Catherine got run over by a spaceship
walking home from the General Assembly,
Now you may say there is no planet Pluto,
But as for the IAU, well, they believe!

We're so proud of the Executive Committee
They've been taking it so well,
See them watch "Breakfast on Pluto,"
and take part in a special August Carnivale!

It's not the IAU without Catherine
All the astronomers are dressed in black!
What should we do with that Very Large Telescope?
Search the Kuiper Belt for planets--or send it back?

Catherine got run over by a spaceship
walking home from the General Assembly,
Now you may say there is no planet Pluto,
But as for the IAU, well, they believe!

Now the gourmet's on the table,
the champagne glasses, they're so big,
and the yellow-orange candles
that would just have matched the hair in Catherine's wig!

I've warned every IAU member
Better watch out for yourselves!
You should never vote out a planet
Until you're sure it's not a home where someone dwells!

Catherine got run over by a spaceship
walking home from the General Assembly,
Now you may say there is no planet Pluto,
But as for the IAU, well, they believe!

Sir, this is hilarious . . . not only because it includes my name, or that I love this OS . . . But I would never downgrade sweet PLUTO ! Fav line: "you should never vote out a Planet, until you're sure it's not a home where someone dwells" ! Very charming write, Sir .
