The Lyrics

Unlike most of the stuff that I and other people submit to this site, this isn't really supposed to be funny.
This is the story of a race
Who leased a planet and ruined the whole place
And while their minds are well designed
They did things that were stupid
Many times

T. Rex is considered a brute
But he could not cause extinction with no guns to shoot
And dinosaurs didn't pollute
They strike fear in our hearts since they're bigger than us
But humans dwarf most other creatures
Shooting deer to put their stuffed heads on walls
Giant dinos at least you could trust
Not to kill harmless creatures whe not hungry at all
How can you expect a race to survive
When they pointlessly murder their food supply?
To fix their bad ways they'd better try

This is the story of a race
Who leased a planet and ruined the whole place
And while their minds are well designed
They did things that are stupid
Many times

How many fish have to choke
On human litter that ends up in their throats
And when oil spills out of boats
It kills all the life in the water bigger than zygotes
It's not quite as bad as it was
But now people stock up on weapons instead
With their government's money
So that foreign humans will be dead
If you do some research you will find
That no other creature will kill its own kind
Unless unfulfilled instrincts drives it out of its mind

This is the story of a race
Who leased a planet and ruined the whole place
And while their minds were well designed
They did things that were stupid
Many times

How can you expect a race to survive
When they pointlessly murder their food supply
To fix their bad ways they'd better try

This is the story of a planet
Made up of strong stuff such as granite
Although it was fine with dinosaurs
Little humans gave it problems
This is the story of a race
Who leased a planet and ruined the whole place
And while their minds are well designed
They 've done things that are stupid
Many times
Many times

how true! How come we don't realize how much we've ruined the earth? Stupid oil-mongering/war-mongering/money-mongering Bush is just making it worse!

I missed this the first time around. I have far more problems with Bush's environmental policy than his war mongering. Good song.

'Giant dinos at least you could trust Not to kill harmless creatures whe not hungry at all' Great to see you've actually put some research into this and aren't just a victim of hopeless romanticism. By the way, by most estimates the sh*t won't really hit the fan until our generation is out of the way. So why worry?

I would like to respecfuly disagree with you, with a three point system 1. Hunting thins the herds of deer and that prevents them from being wiped out in mass numbers by diease and starvation (a lot more painful than the instant death a good shot gives) 2. Bush is not hurting the enviorment, the ozone hole is supposed to fixing itself, and if that war your guys are complaining about didn't occur then Saddam would still be killing all his disenters (and don't start with the 12 men who hurt Iraqi prinsoners that was sick but it was nothing comared to what thier ex-dictator did. 3. Those terroists killed 3,00 of thier own kind on 9/11 they think Allah told them to do it too, there is no way we can deal with them using diplomacy. There are things in life worth fighting for listen to "Have you Forgotten?" By D. Worbley (I think I spelled that wrong)
