Jupiter Has Seven Moons
by Leonard Bernstein


Jupiter has seven moons or is it nine? Saturn has a million, billion, trillion sixty-nine; And ev'ry one is a little sun, with six little moons of its own! But we have only one! Just think of all the fun we'd have if there were nine! Then we could be just nine times more romantic! Dogs would bay 'til they were frantic! we'd have nine tides in the Atlantic! The man in the moon would be gigantic! But we have only one! Only one!
