Lyrics: [Dr. Alice Roberts] How can we start to come close to animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago? Dinosaurs [Jack Horner] Dinosaurs [Bill Nye] Dinosaurs Di-Di-Dinosaurs [Dallas Campbell] Dinosaurs weren't just giant lizards But a truly unique kind of reptile [Narrator 1] Dinosaurs roamed For more than 150 million years Dinosaurs roamed In amazing shapes and sizes Very few left evidence of their existence And those bones never cease to fascinate us [Roberts] The more we find The more complete our understanding Utterly awe-inspiring The world of the dinosaurs [Campbell] There are always new discoveries out there Waiting to be found [Narrator 2] Tyrannosaurus, the largest flesh eater The world has ever seen Dinosaurs - all the dinosaurs- Followed a well trod trail to oblivion [Narrator 1] Rock layers span the age of dinosaurs The deeper the layer, the older the rock At the top - rock from the Cretaceous Below that, the Jurassic And near the bottom, red Triassic badlands When dinosaurs first appeared (refrain) (dino breakdown) [Nye] 65 million years ago [Nigel Marvin] A meteorite smashed into the Earth [Nye] Hurtling toward our planet At a hundred thousand kilometers a second [Roberts] If we'd never found their bones, We wouldn't ever have known These ancient animals ever existed (refrain)
