The Lyrics

The Thylacine (aka Tasmanian Tiger) became extinct in 1936. Despite a multitude of sightings (never authenticated) over the decades and into the 21st century... there is doubt any survive in the wild, anywhere. So in Australia, there have been 3 major efforts to bring the Thylacine back to life through cloning and genetic engineering between 1999-2008. Genetic gene sequencing has recently given hope to the project for Thylacine revival and someday we may see this carniverous marsupial brought back to life...
Hunted down, this species became extinct
Down Under, in the wild
Ambush predator, ate imported poultry and sheep
A carnivorous marsupial that fought for survival
Over time, it happened too fast
The Thylacine was slaughtered for glory
Despite sightings here and there, this marsupial became a thing of the past
Now scientists fight to bring them back to life…

[Chorus:]
Revive the Tasmanian Tiger, it's
the thrill of the DNA fight
Rising up to the challenge of genetic revival
“Benjamin” was the last known survivor
died in captivity in 1936
In a zoo, there was just no chance of survival

1999 there was a race, through cloning
Australian Museum, a publicity stunt try
Couldn’t beat the odds, the project was exposed as phony
Microbiologists dismissed the work as a lie

Revive the Tasmanian Tiger, it's
the thrill of the DNA fight
Rising up to the challenge of genetic revival
“Benjamin” was the last known survivor
died in captivity in 1936
In a zoo, there was just no chance of survival

Not givin’ up, new scientists
Had the funding, got the glory
Extracted from museum specimens, the genetic sequencing was a success
So it’s feasible that the Thylacine may yet be revived

Revive the Tasmanian Tiger, it's
the thrill of the DNA fight
Rising up to the challenge of genetic revival
“Benjamin” was the last known survivor
died in captivity in 1936
In a zoo, there was just no chance of survival

Revive the Tasmanian Tiger
[Repeats to fade out]

Cloning has been one of my favorite parody themes from the start. I like the idea of bringing back extinct species. Who wouldn't want to stand in the middle of a real buffalo herd and watch a billion passenger pigeons fly over?

Duribng WW2 the Nazis brought back the Tarpan Horse and Auroch cattle through back-breeding.
