Lyrics: Our sons Ari & Jason have always
liked dinosaurs, but they got much more interested in dinosaurs in
Kindergarten because of their friend Arlo. In this song, they
decided to feature some dinosaurs which are not always mentioned in
other dinosaur songs.
I’ve heard about dinosaurs.
They rumble and they roar (Roar!)
They all have tails, you see,
So I guess they’re not like me.
Have you heard about Dilophosaurus?
It had three very sharp claws.
It had a super wide mouth
And big, big jaws.
Dilophosaurus was a meat-eater.
I’ve heard it had a crest on it’s head.
It slept on the grassy ground,
Not in a bed.
Have you heard about Ankylosaurus?
It had a club on its tail.
It looked like a tank,
Not like a whale.
Ankylosaurus was a plant-eater.
It had spikes on its back.
It used armor for defense,
Not to attack.
Have you heard about Giganotosaurus?
The biggest meat-eater of them all.
Almost 50 feet long
and 12 feet tall
Giganotosaurus looked like a T-Rex.
It had a banana-shaped brain.
When it caught its prey
It caused great pain.
Have you heard about Velociraptor?
It went super, super fast.
When it raced on two legs
It was never last.
Velociraptor was a meat-eater.
It was a small dinosaur.
But it’s not alive
So you can’t hear it roar.
