 There is a pawn shop somewhere in the sky (working class district) that the gods use. Joe there can set you up with a used moon, planet, or star.

Lyrics

Intro: I’m pulling into the parking lot of Joe’s Celestial Pawn Shop
In my Thor Galaxie – chariot of gods
I’m just a minor deity; I’m sure you’ve never heard of me
But believe me up here they all love my shop
Come on in then – past this curtain of quasars...
 
Chorus 1: Somebody left this pretty planet back in 2016
Look, it still floats and turns
I guess it got a little sunburned
Little bit of work—get the ocean to come down some
You look like you know antiques
So you can see, it’s priced real cheap
 
Can you believe the crap that some folks bring in here?
Here’s a bucket of moons—not one with any atmosphere
But this one’s nice, I even showed it to my wife
Pretty hard to please her though—she’s like, “Does it have intelligent life?”
 
Refrain: ‘Round and round and round and round and round and round and round and roundOoh, yeah (2X)
 
Chorus 2: But it’s a pretty planet, from 2016
It still floats and turns
I guess it got a little sunburned
Little bit of work—get the ocean to come down some
Yeah, it’s a real nice find, if you’re the fixer-up kind
 
I’d like to give the owner a good talking-to
Shouldna let things get so bad—shoulda used his god juju
A few well-placed angels, woulda set the people straight
Put a stop to the ecocide, and all that nasty war and hate
 
Refrain: ‘Round and round.....
 
Chorus 3: But it’s on sale, ever since 2016
It still floats and turns
I guess it got a little sunburned
Little bit of work—get the ocean to come down some
I believe with some TLC, it could work again beautifully
I’ve seen worse and you think they’re done
Just needed that special someone
 
Coda: Thousands of planets coming through the door
But they don’t make orbs like this no more
Four billion years beyond pristine
But it could be...somebody’s dream
It could be...somebody’s dream
