The Lyrics

look at me...though, history...i was a beast...
with skin as tough as leather
lived 'neath the sun 'fore humans begun...they never spied...
my fineness

backbone lined with big plates...but my little mind was dumb
stocky with a big girth...swingin' tail for bruisin'
man, i was a dinosaur that was low-slung and strong
i am extinct now...no longer slink now...i'm stegosaurus
crude stupid brute

not so pretty...eyes all slitty...pity, that my species...had to go
why did i die ?...some comet from the sky, that weighed a ton...
came flyin...caused dyin'...came flyin'...caused dyin'

once we roamed in clusters...other creatures let us by
didn't want our tail spikes...tearin' them to pieces
cause it often knocked a hole, when it came flyin' 'round
i am extinct now...no longer slink now...i'm stegosaurus
crude stupid brute

we were slow, no good at dartin'...hell, we couldn't run
though we couldn't run, we had a plan
we had that tail for causin' pain
i am extinct now...no longer slink now...i'm stegosaurus
crude stupid brute

dino experts...found our bones, here...don't you think our skeletons look cute ?
ho ho ho...hee hee hee...ha ha ha
stunnin' design...with plates on our spines...our backbone lined...
divinely

fascinatin' creatures...up until our final hour
there's been speculation...'bout our famous features
man, we have those bone men...breathless, with a need to know
i am extinct now...no longer slink now...i'm stegosaurus
crude stupid brute...crude crude stupid brute...all stooped
crude stupid brute...crude crude stupid brute...all stooped

got caught...farm bought...from a comet onslaught
got caught...farm bought...from a comet onslaught

buried me
it caused death
buried our bodies
killed the whole lot
celestial villain
we are gone, no doubt
now we're done
and we're dead yet
how rude

how clever was that! - I've been looking for an angle on this OS for ages, and that was great - loved "crude stupid brute" and "no good at dartin'" but the whole thing was fantastic, Al - 555

Wow - this is brilliant, Alvin :-) the "not so pretty...eyes all slitty...pity, that my species...had to go" sub was perfect.
