The IAU Is Whack, Do I Hear an Amen? XD

Oh hai. Remember my last revertigo post? I mentioned something about back when Pluto was still a planet and I got a comment saying that Pluto should in fact still be considered a real planet, which led me to do a little research (just a little, really need to do more), and, yeah, there is, in fact, a campaign to restore Pluto back to its rightful position as one of the 9 planets. I started a conversation about this over at MyLot and I was heartened to find so many who share the same sentiments about dear Pluto. Anyway, got to see this video on YouTube (music by Tim Ophus, lyrics by Chuck Crouse) and really liked it. I was trying to google the actual lyrics, but only found somebody else asking for the lyrics, lol. Anyway, tried to transcribe the thing. I'm posting my transcription here and you tell me if I have a career in doing subtitles for pirated DVDs, lol. (e.g. actual lines: You know what you must do. Make him suffer. Make him wish he were dead... pirated DVD subtitles: You know which must be done. Make he suffer. Making expectation he will die... hehe).



Poor Clyde Tombaugh’s spinning in his grave, he’s losing his dearest friend

‘Cause of the position of its barycenter, Pluto’s life approaches its end

It’s broader than the moon, dope is a typhoon

Circling the sun in autumn, winter, spring and June

9th from the epicenter, methane clouds its only weather

Pluto’s gonna rise once again

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Tried to put my boy in any other class

Ceres and Aries couldn’t match him

He sits below the Kuiper Belt

you don’t wanna know the schemes he’s hatchin

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Named for a god, contains all fertile sod

The perception of smooth terrain is only a fa├žade

Put it in ... Charon

Cruel like an evil baron

Knocked down by the rules and laws of men

Pluto’s gonna rise once again

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Bring my Pluto back, the IAU is straight up whack

Bring sweet Pluto home from out beyond Neptune alone

Bring my Pluto back, bring my Pluto back
