Bones in Orbit

by Greg Crowther


This song, originally written for Biology 241 at South Seattle College, lists the bones that define the orbit of the eye. Note the puns relating to astronomical orbits.


Bones in orbit:
Not seen up in the sky,
But found around the eye.
Bones in orbit:
If you know what they are,
You too will be a star.

There's the cheekbone, the zygomatic;
The lacrimal, which helps you cry;
The upper jaw, the old maxilla;
And to its posterior, the palatine.

The frontal bone, which is part of the cranium;
The sphenoid bone, which is shaped like a bat;
The ethmoid bone, just in front of the sphenoid;
Now you have the list and that's that.
