They used to walk. They used to swim.
They used to fly with a toothy grin.
Some ate plants and some ate meat.
Some walked around on just two feet.
Oh, the dinosaurs! Big as trees!
Dinosaurs! Brains like peas!
Jaws and claws and teeth and bone…
that used to growl, groan, and moan.
Some had feathers. Some had scales.
Spikes, clubs, and whip-like tails.
They fought like dragons. The earth sure shook.
The volcanoes sizzled and the lava cooked.
Tyrannosaurus Rex was a terrible king.
The Stegosaurus’ tail could really swing.
Brachiosaurus liked to stomp.
Trachodon would chew and chomp.
They roamed the earth, a hundred million years…
without worries, cares, or fears.
Then one day they hit the soil…
now they’re fossils, gas, and oil!
