That's part of a good education! One fine day you have to understand that not all you have been told at school is true or correct.

The German rhyme I learned to remember the first letter of the planets was this:

 

Mein Vater erklärt mir jeden Sonntag unsere neun Planeten.

My Father explains (to) me every Sunday our nine planets. No longer true.

I never used it anyway since I've known the planets from when I was a very young boy...
