Big Yellow Ball


Big yellow ball, that’s what you are
One million kilometers wide
A hundred million kilometers round.
Big yellow ball burning in space
Day turns to night, heat turns to cold.

The earth takes a year just to travel round the sun
And it’s a mighty long way to go
Round and around and around and around
And around the sun we go


People in the north of the Earth have the summer
When the people in the south are cold
People in the east of the Earth have their night
When the people in the west have day.


Spring turns to summer turns to autumn turns to winter
How I love to watch the seasons change
Showers in the winter then the flowers in the spring
And then the heat on the dusty plain.
