Fifty million years ago
You walked upon the planet so
Lord of all that you could see
Just a little bit like me

Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps

Hey Mr. Dinosaur
You really couldn't ask for more
You were God's favourite creature
But you didn't have a future

Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps
Walkin' in your footsteps

Hey mighty Brontosaurus
Don't you have a lesson for us?
You thought your rule would always last
There were no lessons in your past

You were built three storeys high
They say you would not hurt a fly
If we explode the atom bomb
Would they say that we were dumb?

Walkin' in your footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in your footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in your footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in your footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)

They say the meek shall inherit the earth
(They say the meek shall inherit the earth)
They say the meek shall inherit the earth
(They say the meek shall inherit the earth)
Walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'

The real Father Flintstone
To lock out of extinction
But you really have to think up
And you're walkin' in your graveyard

Fifty million years ago
They walked upon the planet so
Live in a museum
It's the only place you'll see 'em

Now we're walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)

Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Walkin' in my footsteps
(Walkin' in your footsteps)
Oh
