The Lyrics

The Dinosaurs by Jeffrey Moran

A long time ago when the earth was green, there was more kinds of dinosaurs that you’ve ever seen.
And they’d dance around during the Cretaceous, and the meanest of them all was a big T Rex.

Chorus: There were three-horned Triceratops and Alamosaurs
Humpty-back theropods and Antarctosaurs.
Troodon and Dracorex and ones with long necks.
But the meanest of them all was a big T Rex.

Well, God seen some mammals, and He liked that stock. Said, “I’m gonna send a great big rock.
To collide with the earth off the Yucatan. It’s an evolution plan.”

Chorus: There were three-horned Triceratops and Alamosaurs
Humpty-back theropods and Antarctosaurs.
Troodon and Dracorex and ones with long necks.
But the meanest of them all was a big T Rex.

The dinosaurs didn’t know what to do. They just kept runnin’ ‘round eatin’ food.
And the asteroid didn’t care about their fate. It just made an impact great.

Chorus: There were three-horned Triceratops and Alamosaurs
Humpty-back theropods and Antarctosaurs.
Troodon and Dracorex and ones with long necks.
But the meanest of them all was a big T Rex.

Tsunamis, volcanoes, and earthquakes. The big ol’ dinosaurs couldn’t escape.
They were kicking and a coughing up dust and ash following that cosmic blast.

Chorus: There were three-horned Triceratops and Alamosaurs
Humpty-back theropods and Antarctosaurs.
Troodon and Dracorex and ones with long necks.
But the meanest of them all was a big T Rex.

The mammals started growing and the birds in flight survived that five-year long night.
But the big dinos died and faded away, so you’ll never see a live one today.

Chorus: But you’ll see green alligators and long-necked geese.
Humpty-back camels and chimpanzees.
Cats and rats and prairie chickens on leks.
But you’re never gonna see a big T Rex.

Dino's are always cool, so 555! But three things in the parody are not true (four if you want to bring in religion to argue who created them). First, there's no proof of their demise by asteroid which is but one of several theories; in fact, the Wooly Mammoths recovered still had undigested food in their stomachs. Suggests instantaneous destruction. Second, the T-Rex has lost it's crown to bigger, badder dinosaurs like Giganotosaurus and Spinosaurus, the latter discovered by German paleontologist von Reichenbach in 1912, Egypt . The fossils were lost in the Allied bombing of Munich in WW2, but other fossils were found elsewhere later. And third, we _may_ see the Wooly Mammoth again through DNA manipulation using Elephants to jumpstart the process. First up though is the Tasmanian Tiger (or Thylacine)...
