Dinosaur Songs and Poems

All Around The Swamp
Tune: The Wheels On The Bus

The Pteranodon's wings went
Flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap,
The Pteranodon's wings went
Flap, flap, flap,
All around the swamp.
The Tyrannosaurus rex went grr,
The Triceratops horns went poke,
The Apatosaurus went munch,
The Stegosaurus' tail went spike.

Tyrannosaurus Rex

Dinosaurs walked on this earth,
On this earth,

Dinosaurs walked on this earth,
A long, long time ago.
Tyrannosaurus Rex was the king,
Was the king,

Tyrannosaurus Rex was the king
A long, long time ago.
Tyrannosaurus (child's name)was the king,
Was the king,

Tyrannosaurus (child's name)was the king,
A long, long time ago.

Five Enormous Dinosaurs

5 enormous dinosaurs letting out a roar;
One went away, and then there were four.
4 enormous dinosaurs munching on a tree;
One went away, and then there were three.
3 enormous dinosaurs didn't know what to do;
One went away, and then there were two.
2 enormous dinosaurs having lots of fun;
One went away, and then there was one,
1 enormous dinosaur afraid to be a hero;
He went away, and then there was zero.

Dinosaurs
Tune: Oh, My Darling Clementine

Great big dinosaurs,
great big dinosaurs
Lived so long ago.
Some liked land and some liked water,
Some flew in the air.
Great big dinosaurs,
great big dinosaurs
Lived so long ago.
Some had horns and some had spikes,
Some had wings like bats.
Great big dinosaurs,
great big dinosaurs
Lived so long ago.
Some ate plants some ate meat,
But now there are no more.
