Along with the song is a lyric sheet. The lyric sheet is a one-page, horizontal sheet that contains the title "An Asteroid Named Psyche" in big bold letters at the top of the page. On either side of the title are two small graphics, both the same, of a circular cartoon asteroid in black and white. Underneath the title are the full lyrics, clumped into paragraphs for each separate verse and chorus. There is also a notated lead sheet which contains the notated melody with the chords written above the staff lines and the lyrics written below.

An Asteroid Named Psyche

An Asteroid Named Psyche is a children’s song that I wrote, which follows the asteroid’s story. I wanted the song to be both educational and exciting for kids, so I brought the Psyche asteroid to life and created a story that could have a nice little moral while also staying on target scientifically. I aimed for the melody to be catchy, a characteristic that was aided by repetition and structure. The vocals and guitar were recorded by my friend Amelia Murray, a New York City based singer-songwriter, who did an amazing job of giving the tune a character. Along with the recording, I created a lead sheet and a lyric sheet, both of which will be shared with various schools for any choirs that would be interested in learning the song and learning about the mission.
