					                Earth and Moon                          The Phases of the Moon Song –
    To the tune of “The Ants Go Marching”           To the tune – “The Wheels on the Bus”

                                               The phases of the moon go round, round, round,
The Earth revolves around the sun,             Round, round, round, round, round, round,
Hooray! Hooray!                                The phases of the moon go round, round, round,
It takes one year its orbit to make,           All through the month.
Hooray! Hooray!
Three hundred sixty-five days it takes,        The new moon is the phase where you can’t see
One complete revolution it makes,              Any light, any light,
Then it starts all over again, again, again.   The new moon is the phase where you can’t see
                                               Any light at all.
The Earth rotates on its axis,
Hooray! Hooray!                                The waxing crescent has a sliver of light,
Twenty-four hours is what it takes,            Sliver of light, sliver of light,
Hooray! Hooray!                                The waxing crescent has a sliver of light
Rotation causes day and night,                 A sliver of light on the right.
It’s the reason for dark and light,
Then it starts all over again, again, again.   The first quarter phase is half lit up,
                                               Half lit up, Half lit up,
The moon revolves around the earth,            The first quarter phase is half lit up
Hooray! Hooray!                                The right half has the light.
It takes one month this orbit to make,
Hooray! Hooray!                                The waxing gibbous is more than a half
We see the moon go through each phase,         But not quite full, not quite full.
All eight upon them we can gaze,               The waxing gibbous is more than half
Then it starts all over again, again, again.   The full moon will be next.

The movements of the earth and moon,           The full moon is a circle of light,
Hooray! Hooray!                                Circle of light, circle of light,
Are natural cycles that can be found,          The full moon is a circle of light,
Hooray! Hooray!                                That lights up the night sky.
The seasons and the day and night,
Even the tides – Yes, that’s right!            The waning gibbous is less than full,
Then it starts all over again, again, again.   Less than full, less than full,
                                               The waning gibbous is less than full,
                                               Coming after a full moon.

                                               The third quarter phase is half lit up,
                                               Half lit up, half lit up,
Both Songs by Myra Lingle                      The third quarter phase is half lit up,
                                               The left half has the light.

                                               The waning crescent has a sliver of light,
                                               Sliver of light, sliver of light,
                                               The waning crescent has a sliver of light,
                                               The light is on the left.

                                               That’s our song about the phases of the moon,
                                               Phases of the moon, phases of the moon,
                                               That’s our song about the phases of the moon,
                                               A natural cycle of Earth.
