I was digging in the desert
I was all alone
When my shovel shoved in to a dinosaur bone
A leg so big I thought it was a log
Then I tripped and slipped on a dinosaur jaw
I bumped my head and the sky went red
And I fell into a dream on a dinosaur bed
Wo!

And in my dream I was having a talk
With a big green dinosaur dancin' on a rock
I said excuse me but I came here lookin for your dead bones
He said leave my bones alone

Mr. Dinosaur, what would you think
If you were still living and we were extinct
Mr. Dinosaur, could you resist
Digging in the dirt for scientists
You'd be digging in the dirt

Well I wonder if the world would be any less strange
If the chain of evolution were rearranged
If man was gone, turn the page
And today was the day of the dinosaur age
If they lived now and we lived then
Would they make scary movies about prehistoric men
(and the women they loved)
Wo!

Can't you see a bunch of dinosaurs diggin' in the dirt
All decked out wearing stone washed jeans, alligator shirts
One T-Rex gets excited and he says
Hey I found a humanoid head

Mr. Dinosaur, what would you think
If you were still living and we were extinct
Mr. Dinosaur, could you resist
Digging in the dirt for scientists
You'd be digging in the dirt
(for whatever it's worth)

They'd display us in museums and they study us in schools
And theorize for hours 'bout our customs and our tools
In raging debate as to our fate they'd agree
To dig us up to see

Mr. Dinosaur, what would you think
If you were still living and we were extinct
Mr. Dinosaur, could you resist
Digging in the dirt for scientists

You'd be digging in the dirt
For whatever it's worth
