                                                                                              Give me a Mesozoic mind...a Mesozoic mind...

                                                               Last night I had a crazy ,
                                                                                             
                                                               I fell out of my ,
                                                                                             
                                                               I missed the  entirely,
                                                                                             
                                                               and fell through  instead.
                                                                                             
                                                               Through yesterday and history,
                                                                                                      
                                                               and unrecorded time,
                                                                                             
                                                               a hundred years flew by,
                                                                                             
                                                               to Mesozoic times.


                                                               I looked around,
                                                                                           
                                                               and there I ,
                                                                                             
                                                               that everything had changed.
                                                                                             
                                                               The  was full of animals,
                                                                                             
                                                               they all were very strange.
                                                                                              
                                                               Those dinosaurs were ,
                                                                                             
                                                               and every shape and size.
                                                                                             
                                                               They walked the plains and ,
                                                                                              
                                                               they even filled the skies.

                                                                              
                                                               Give me a Mesozoic mind,
                                                                                             
                                                                me away from all mankind.
                                                                                             
                                                               You can keep your Cenozoic,
                                                                                             
                                                               But I'll take the Mesozoic,
                                                                                             
                                                               Give me a Mesozoic .
 

                                                                                             

                                                              Apatosaurus plodded past,
                                                                                              
                                                              As  as any tree.
                                                                                             
                                                              And Pterosaur flew through the ,
                                                                                              
                                                              And monsters filled the sea.
                                                                                              
                                                              A mighty Stegosaurus clad with armor down it's spine,
                                                                                             
                                                              Raised their Camarasaurus, and others of our kind.


                                                                                             
                                                             
                                                              I hid behind a  of rock when Allosaurus roared
                                                                                              
                                                             Corythosaurus ran away, escaping hungry hoards.
                                                                                             
                                                             Diplodocus took just one step, and made the  shake.
                                                                                             
                                                             I did not want my dream to end, I didn't wanna wake.
