Constellation Shuffle

Tune: Nothing Could be Finer Than to be in Carolina in the Morning
Lyrics: Deb Gerace, Artist in Residence, 2008

Chorus: Nothing could be finer – Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, in the ni – ght sky.
What a cool creation are these bear-shaped constellations in the ni – ght sky.

1. Ancient people saw a group of stars and went nuts.
Giving them identities like legends and such,
Bears and dippers, gods and critters
Shape the stars that glitter in the
Ni- ght sky
(Repeat Chorus here, then go to Verse #2)

2. Ursa is the Latin word that we use for bear.
Major’s big and minor’s small, so now you’re aware that
Bears and dippers, gods and critters
Shape the stars that glitter in the
Ni – ght sky!
(Repeat Chorus)
