The Lyrics

Gather round all folks and friends and come on over here
And listen to my mournful song about the biosphere
Let us all remember all the diff'rent species gone
And lift our voices in another sixth extinction song

Sudan the white rhinoceros, he was the only male
He had two ladies with him but their reproducing failed
Lonesome George the tortoise, he had much a worser fate
He lived over one hundred years but never found a mate

Now all of them have died
And so have all their kind
They've gone extinct, extinct, they've gone extinct forever more
There was a lot and there was some but now they are completely gone
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again

Martha was a pigeon, the last one you would find
Whose flocks were once so massive that they blotted out the sky
Benjamin the thylacine, also the last we're told
He perished in the Hobart Zoo, when left out in the cold

Celia was an ibex of the Pyranean type
They cloned her for a little bit but the wee kid sadly died
The ivory billed woodpecker is but a distant wish
And dummies damming rivers damned the Chinese paddlefish (hey!)

Now all of them have died
And so have all their kind
They've gone extinct, extinct, they've gone extinct forever more
There was a lot and there was some but now they are completely gone
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again

There was a frog from down under who barfed her babies live
And the Huia bird of NZ whose beak was diff'rent from his wife
The laughing owl who cackled now laughs never ever more
And Yangtze river dolphins now lay dead upon the shore

When half-striped quaggas died out it was such a cryin' shame
They tried to breed brown zebras but it just isn't the same
A snail named Turgi was no more when year '96 hit
But snails ain't cute like pandas so nobody give a sh--(ach!)

Now all of them have died
And so have all their kind
They've gone extinct, extinct, they've gone extinct forever more
There was a lot and there was some but now they are completely gone
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again

Ole!
The Kauai O'o sang aloud to try and get the girl
But the little birdie was the last one in the world
The Steller's sea cow, manatee of such impressive size
Became a hungry hunting sailors big and blubbery prize

Misfortune and ill tidings befell a bandicoot
Who had not a paw but 'stead a little piggy foot
And though the folks tried hard to save the poor heath hen
It was the last they'd ever hear of good ol' Booming Ben

Now all of them have died
And so have all their kind
They've gone extinct, extinct, they've gone extinct forever more
There was a lot and there was some but now they are completely gone
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again

Someday soon all creatures will be gone upon the earth
From habitat destruction just for financial worth
We only wish is when the end comes to all species hence
It also kills that mother-bleeping Homo sapiens

Now all of them have died
And so have all their kind
They've gone extinct, extinct, they've gone extinct forever more
There was a lot and there was some but now they are completely gone
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again

But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again
But folks are dumb and folks will come
Then go extinctin' once again
