The Lyrics

Can't resist shooting those poor barrel-bound fish, I'm afraid. At least, not after finding out that nobody's done this already - it seemed such an obvious idea.

Silly dinosaurish names to confound, scare and bore us
My mad mispronunciation comes out indecorous

Hmm.. Parasaurolophus, Iguanodon
Hmm.. Procompsognathus, all of 'em gone

I used to know each dinosaur when I was just a lad
I'd use 'em to impress my teachers and my mum and dad
But every day today it seems to me that list has grown:
They name a whole new species every time they find a bone, there's

Dimetrodon, Deinonychus, Dilong, Diplodocus
How do they invent these names, it seems like hocus pocus
Must have been more dino-species than there now are locusts
Rhamphorhyncus, Seismosaurus, Sordes, Sarchosuchus

Hmm.. Huaxiagnathus, hmm.. pleiosaur
Hmm.. Tropeognathus, none any more

From fossils all around the world they infer quite a lot
And have a look to see what similarities they've got
But when you think "That cannot be! How on earth can they know?"
They walked (or stomped) the Earth two million centuries ago, So

Let's make up another name to stick into the chorus
Call your one-eyed dinosaur a "Do-you-think-he-saurus"
Isn't it a load of b.. a load of "Faecotaurus"

Hmm.. Cretoxyrhina, dimorphodon
Hmm.. Ornithocheirus, they've also gone

You know:
Some sound like they're backwards, for example
Saurolophus, Saurophagus or Sauropus
Must have been stoned when they named them, don't you think?

So when you've found a fossil bone, you too can join the game
Say it's a brand new dinosaur, and give it your own name
But better do it carefully or it could change your life...
Can you imagine introducing this one to your wife?

It's Alexandropophagorgopollyannasaurus

"Dino-mite"? Is that some kind of permian parasite? (And may make a good parody to "Dyna-mite" by Mud - any takers?)
Thanks, everybody :-)

Well-I am not yet looking to parody this song, and as long as parodists like you are around, I don't need to--brilliant and it's quite a classic Jurassic

It certainly *is* hard to believe that no one thought of this before... TMGLTM, but "Do-you-think-he-saurus", "Faecotaurus", Sauropus, and the whole last verse were LOL, and "twisting" "ankle" (so to speak) to "ankyl" with "bracelet"... well, that's just pure genius, Phil ;-) Poly-5, anna-nother great new spin on OS, contrary to certain Ants who think this genre's exhausted (cough cough).

Nice parody

Thanks, everybody
Merry - that's pretty much what happens, in that if they find a fossil bone that doesn't fit any known Dinosaur species, there's a tendency to assume that it's a whole new one - at least one of the ones mentioned above are extrapolations of a couple of vertetbrae only.
TT - (so, is "Testudines" Latin for "Tommy", then?) - Sauropus isn't a made-up one, btw; and you reminded me I forgot to put in the "French wartime sitcom dinosaur", the alloallosaurus
Lionel - the "um diddle-iddle" bits are quite tricky to sing in this at any kind of speed, but you might get your wish, you never know..

Excellent parody with a creative idea and clever ending. But for the author of this parody and anyone else who considers doing parodies of this OS to be like "shooting fish in a barrel," may I make the following suggestions:

1. The OS has 4 (non-chorus) verses. Two of them use ABAB rhyming and two use ABCB rhyming. "Stega-Bronto-Brachylopho-Anodontosaurus" and most other AmiRight parodies of the OS only use ABCB rhyming. For anyone who parodies this OS who is looking for more of a challenge, I recommend trying ABAB rhyming.
br> 2. When the song is performed by Julie Andrews in the Mary Poppins movie, there is an additional verse in which Supercal… is sung backwards. Most AmiRight parodies of the OS do not attempt to do this. The Capitol Steps, who have parodied the OS many times, always do a backwards verse. For example, in their "Super frantic unproductive nothing legislation" parody (of the U.S. Congress), they turn it around into "Noisy squawks 'til money talks, big bucks our jobs should reap us." So again, for anyone who thinks that doing a parody of the OS is too simple, consider inserting a verse that reverses the title.

Maybe Phil was being sarcastic about how easy it was to fit all these scientific dinosaur names into a parody?
