Dinosaur

Long ago and far away in a different age
when I was a dumb young guy
fossilized photos of my life then
illustrate what an easy prey I must have been
standing in the sun, idiot savant
something like a monument

I'm a dinosaur, somebody is digging my bones

Ignorance has always been something I excel in
followed by naivet
and pride
doesn't take a scientist to see how
any clever predator could have a piece of me
standing in the sun, idiot savant
something like a monument

I'm a dinosaur, somebody is digging my bones

When I look back on the past
it's a wonder I'm not yet extinct
all the mistakes and bad judgments I made
nearly pushed me to the brink
it doesn't pay to be too nice,
it's the one thing I have learned
still I made my fossil bed
now I toss and turn

I'm a dinosaur, somebody is digging my bones
