‘their brains were small and they died’
When I sit in contemplation of the human situation
I often feel a certain sense of pride.
For our achievements are many and mighty
And the evidence cannot be denied.
But my reverie is shaken cause my thoughts are always taken To a tragedy that happened long ago, When there moved throughout the land Beings awesome and grand The fabulous dinosaur. They were creatures in a manner quite reptilian In their unique and stylish way, And their numbers could be reckoned in the millions; But there are zero of these heroes in the world today. They had music, art and fashion, there was dinosauric passion And I think theyd be enraged and mortified
That when theyre mentioned today its only to say:
Their brains were small and they died.

Perhaps some asteroid that mother earth could not avoid
Became the agent of their premature demise.
Well l understand that these things can happen,
So who are we to criticize?
When well spend most any price to have the ultimate device That insures the perfect global suicide. Well, l would venture instead that the humanoid head Is where the tinier brain resides. And when were gone our works theyll start to crumble Until nothing can be found. In ten million years some other guys may stumble On our fossils then some asshole will begin to expound, in some scientific study to his cockroach science buddies How the evidence can never be denied---They were big dumb and slow, they couldnt go with the
flow Their brains were small, and they died.

I really like how you sang this one. This is a particularly groovy number. It puts such a big smile on my face, and considering all I'm going through right now, I truly appreciate the smile -- thank you!
