The Lyrics

Pluto's not a planet any longer
They said he's just a dwarf and that is all
But now his claim to fame has just grown stronger
They found another moon around that ball

His fans say they hope it won't be forever
'Til he has planet status one more time
When he has five moons orbiting together
To say he's not a planet, kinda seems like it's a crime

And with the naked eye Pluto will not be in sight
A telescope is needed to view the guy at night
He's so far away and so small that he's not too bright

And Pluto's not a planet anymore
Some people don't know why they did that for
He had been one so long, and that's for sure
It seems like such a bore
They changed it
No Pluto's not a planet anymore
There's lots of folks who miss him, feel so sore
But planet 9 just walked right out the door
I miss the days of yore
'Cause now Pluto's not a planet anymore

The sky has been turning crazy since they saw her
Eris came along 'bout seven years ago
And she's the reason that Pluto got demoted
"Ten planets are too many," said astronomers, "you know"

"And with the naked eye Pluto wouldn't be in sight"
A telescope is needed to view the guy at night
So we think that to call him 'planet' is just not right"

So Pluto's not a planet anymore
Some people don't know why they did that for
He had been one so long, and that's for sure
It seems like such a bore
They changed it
No Pluto's not a planet anymore
There's lots of folks who miss him, feel so sore
But planet 9 just walked right out the door
I miss the days of yore
'Cause now Pluto's not a planet anymore

Nice compliment to Pluto, the cartoon dog planet that didn't deserve it's demise. I think it had been one long enough where they should have just said "Okay, we effed up, but there we have it" It's called flexibility, people!

Agreed. Dammit, Janet, Pluto's a planet!

Pluto's moons are named Charon, Hydra, Nix, P4 and P5. I think the last two should be renamed "Mickey" and "Minnie".
