Counter
In a prehistoric river in a prehistoric swamp,
Lived a herd of duckbill dinosaurs who liked to stand and chomp.
And they hooted, "Up with the rivers!" and they hooted, "Up with reeds!"
And they hooted, "Up with bellyfulls of juicy water weeds!"
Now across the rushy river, on a hill the other side,
Lived a mean Tyrannosaurus with his grim and grisly bride.
And they shouted, "Up with hunting!" and they shouted, "Up with war!"
And they shouted, "Up with bellyfuls of duckbill dinosaur!"
