PLUTO

       We learned that there is nine of you in old man Murphy’s class
       Some of you are solid an’ the rest are full of gas
       Now they say you’re just an ol’ washed up eccentric rock
       Kicked out of the cosmic neighborhood upscale block

             Pluto, wanderin’ free in the cold fringes of space
             Vetoed to a planetary science basket case
             You strayed inside of Neptune, many miles from a proper course
             An now Charon your faithful moon is filin' for divorce

       Like that cartoon dog who stole your name, you’re miscast an’ abused
       Leavin’ loyal friends here on earth cryin’ and confused
       Spinin’ in a wild, weird orbit, billions of miles from any sun
       May be a little on the frigid side, but you never hurt no one

             Pluto, wanderin’ free in the cold fringes of space
             Vetoed to a planetary science basket case
             You strayed inside of Neptune, many miles from a proper course
             An now Charon your faithful moon is filin' for divorce

       You may have been a little too inclined to march to your own drum
       A wayward rock an’ rollin’ soul, social outlaw, maverick gypsy on the run

             Pluto, wanderin’ free in the cold fringes of space
             Vetoed to a planetary science basket case
             But they’ll get their just reward of mockery an’ heathen shame
             When God’s angels vote you into the planetary hall of fame
