WAR PAINT the Musical - Dinosaurs Lyrics

"Dinosaurs" is a song from WAR PAINT the musical performed by John Dossett (Mr. Lewis) & Douglas Sills (Harry).

MR. LEWIS (spoken):
Maybe they should have kept up with the times.

HARRY (spoken):
Well, Darwin taught us that's how you survive!

MR. LEWIS:
You know the opposite of survival? Extinction.

(sung):
Boom! Crash!
Hear that fearsome sound?
Two archaic dinosaurs
Who somehow stuck around

They're the prehistoric missing link
Slathering their greasy goo
On wrinkled hides and faces

HARRY (sung):
Wham!
Smash!
Epidermis Rex
Raging in confusion
at the modern world of sex

Once they were behemoths
With an appetite for blood

MR. LEWIS:
Now their lapping prune juice up
Like puddles in the mud

HARRY:
Ruthless

MR. LEWIS:
But as toothless as their roars!

BOTH:
They're dinosaurs!
(squawking)

MR. LEWIS (spoken):
Larger than life anyway

HARRY (spoken):
And they lasted eons!

MR. LEWIS (sung):
Love 'em
Loathe 'em
They're the stuff of lore

HARRY (sung):
Life don't throw them Mammoth anymore
Never was

MR. LEWIS:
Ever was
Any bigger since

BOTH:
Maybe the Smithsonian
Should mount their friggin' footprints

MR. LEWIS (spoken):
Look at us

HARRY (spoken):
Who? Me and you?

MR. LEWIS (sung):
Beat
Broke
Putting on a paunch
Paragons of salesmanship
Without a line to lodge

HARRY (sung):
First, you're making millions on your schmooze
Then you're clipping coupons from the news for Metamucil

MR. LEWIS:
Cry

HARRY:
Joke

BOTH:
Who's but you's to blame

HARRY:
Glad to say I socked away enough to quit the game
Gonna spend my golden years where fossils go to die

MR. LEWIS (spoken):
Where?

HARRY:
Sunset Village, Florida

MR. LEWIS (sung):
Oh sweet Jesus, so am I

HARRY:
Care to share a pied-à-terre?

MR. LEWIS:
Up yours!

BOTH:
To albino, genus: wino dinosaurs!
(squawking)
