Happy Planets


Happy, Friendly Planets

by Lou Singer and Hy Zaret, 1959

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot, the sun is not
A place where we could live
But here on Earth there’d be no life
Without the light it gives

We need its light, we need its heat
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun’s
Atomic energy

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot…

The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas
Aluminum, Copper, Iron, and many others

The sun is large…

If the sun were hollow, a million Earth’s would fit inside
And yet, it is only a middle size star

The sun is far away…

About 93,000,000 miles away
And that’s why it looks so small

But even when it’s out of sight
The sun shines night and day

We need its heat, we need its light
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun’s
Atomic energy

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom smashing machine
The heat and light of the sun are caused by nuclear reactions between
Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, and Helium

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees
