Moon Phases Rap!


New Moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
You see it in the sky most nights,
Moon lookin so fine, so bright
Uh, But the Moon doesn’t make its own light
You can see it because it
Reflects the Sun’s light
It don’t ever really look the same
8 different phases and they all have names
If you wanna know why then listen
It depends on the Moon’s position
Relative to the Earth, this is how it works
New Moon phase is where we start first
When the Moon between the Earth and Sun
Look in the sky and you see none Of it lit
You slowly begin to see more of it
Until we have a toenail shaped  crescent
Ain’t this a great way to learn a  Lesson
New Moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
And we slowly start to see more,
Till we at the first quarter, one Fourth
And even though it’s lookin half lit,
It’s a quarter way gone around its orbit
Now let’s get down to business
The next phase up is called a waxing gibbous
It’s the right side lit up you know  It’s waxing
Think about the first letter in relaxing
And we keep on moving to the Full Moon
All pretty lit up like a show room
The Sun, Earth, Moon, lined up in a straight line
So the whole side lit up most of the time
Except a Lunar Eclipse, when the Moon is under
The shadow of the Earth that we call a penumbra
The rest is pretty much the same
Reverse the order, change wax to wane
New Moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
Those are the phases of the Moon, Those are the phases of the Moon
Phases of the Moon… Phases of the Moon… Phases of the Moon… Phases of the Moon…
The Moon takes 29.5 days
To change from the first to the last phase
Its gravitational pull causes our tides
Along with the Sun, low and high
Apollo 11, first men on the Moon, yeah, U.S. reppin
Now try to identify
The phase of the Moon that you see in the sky
