1. Dino and Diplo were down at the big hole processing their daily half-ton

††† D††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

ďDiplo,Ē said Dino, ďI think that itís time to assess who we are and whatís to come.

††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††† A

ďWe just canít go on like weíve been, chum; the earth wonít support our lifestyle.Ē

††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† ††E†††††††††† E7††††††††††††††† A

So they sat there digesting, their abdomens flexing, Until Diplo replied with a smile,

†††††††††††††††††† A7††††††††††††††††† D G D††††††††††††††††††††† D G D

Refrain:Letís become birds!Letís explore flight!

†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††EA

I know thereís something better than lumbering around here, letís try it!

††††††††††††††††††††††††† D G D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D G D

Letís become birds!You know, weíre much too large!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† EA

We take up too much space, we eat more than our share; our accountís overcharged!

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

And we could be soaring, Ďstead of wandering and warring just to feed our fat frames

†††††††††††††††††††††† Bm†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Consider the weather!Letís scale down to feathers, it donít take that much brains.

†††††††††††††††††††††††† DGD

Letís become birds

††††† D††††††††††††† A††††††††† ††G†††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† D†† A

2. Diplo and Dinoís decision was final; they brought their idea to the herd.

††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††Bm†††††††††††††† E††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Of course all those big louts just thought they had flipped out -- To be small flying things?How absurd!

†††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††††††† E†††††††††† A

But a few crackpots joined in their madness, so these weirdoes were never alone.

††††††††††††††††† Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E††††††††††††† E7†††††††††††† A

And they chanted and prayed and affirmed, saying: ďWe swear by T-Rexís wishbone Ė

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D G D††††††††††††††††††††† D G D

Refrain:Weíll become birds!Weíll explore flight!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††EA

We know thereís something better than lumbering around here, letís try it!

††††††††††††††††††††††††† D G D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D G D

Letís become birds!You know, weíre much too large!

†††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††EA

Just look at the weather!Letís scale down to feathers, it donít take that much brains.
