Moons of Jupiter

from I Rode Fido Home

It's gonna take eleven cups of joe
To get that major caffeine dose
Sunrise comin' at warp galactic speed
The diner's running out of joe
This quartet I still don't know, professor man,
I'll tell you what I need

Well I know the planets well
The year of the first telescope
And Tycho named that dimple on the moon
But could you change for me
Names like Ganymede
And her three friends
'Cause morning's coming soon

Please rename the moons of Jupiter
To Matt, Mark, Luke, and John
I've spent my brain and can't retain
The real names 'till dawn
Rename the moons of Jupiter
The gospel boys won't mind
I'll do my best to ace this test
And pass your course this time

Sometimesweforgetthatnatureitselfisonevastmiracle
Andoureverexpandinguniverseisgrowingandyetstillgoesonintoinfinity
Whichtomeiscompletelybeyondcomprehension

All I need is a scantron sheet
A number two lead and a small cheat sheet
Not to mention my own divine intervention

Please rename the moons of Jupiter
To John, Paul, George, and Ringo
I've spent my brain and can't retain
This interstellar lingo
Rename the moons of Jupiter
The Beatles sure won't mind
I'll do my best to ace this test
And pass your course this time

It's gonna take eleven cups of joe
To get that major caffeine dose
Sunrise comin' at warp galactic speed
The diner's running out of joe
This quartet I still don't know,
Professor man, I'll tell you what I need

Please rename the moons of Jupiter to
George, Tom, Abe, and Ted
I've spent my brain and can't retain
The real names in my head
Rename the moons of Jupiter
Rushmore's men won't mind
I'll do my best to ace this test
And pass your course this time
