The Lyrics

I grew up learning "brontosaurus", although that dinosaur had been made a part of Apatosaurus many years earlier (early 20th century), and my kids grew up learning "apatosaurus". But a few years ago, scientists re-examining skeletons decided that Brontosaurus was indeed separate from Apatosaurus.
My Bronto’s Back by Jeff “Dr Chordate” Moran

He went away while you hung around,
Pothered by the bones they found.
They made me a small part of you.
They said things that were so untrue.

My Bronto’s back, better get out of your bubble.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
When he steps on you, you’ll be a pile of rubble.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
The lies you told were so untrue.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
But look out now ‘cause he’s comin’ after you.

(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
Skeletal examination
Hey! Your’re gonna face an ablation.

He’s been gone for a century or so.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
Became Apatosaurus, don’t you know.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
You’re gonna be sorry for that mistake.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
‘Cause he’s so big, you’re bones he’s gonna break.

Hey! I knew he was for real. Now you’re gonna get a big deal.

Apatosaurus? What a surprise!
You were big, too, but he’ll cut you down to size.
Hit you with his tail.

My Bronto’s back. Hear it at the lyceum.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
If I were you, I’d find a new museum.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)

Yeah, my Bronto’s back. (Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
Look out now, my Bronto’s back. (Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
Science saw him coming, givin’ him a homecoming, alright now.
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. (Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
(Hey-la-day-la, my Bronto’s back.)
