Come on down t’ the big dig
Come on down t’ the big dig
Come on t’ the big dig
Singin’ the Smithsonian Institute blues
Singin’ the Smithsonian Institute blues
The way it’s goin’ La Brea tar pits
I know you just can’t lose
The new dinosaur is walkin’ in the old one’s shoes
Come on down t’ the big dig
Can’t get around the big dig
This may be premature but if I’m wrong
You can just say it’s the first time I was happy t’ be confused
Singin’ the Smithsonian Institute blues
Alll you new dinosaurs
Now it’s up t’ you t’ choose
It sure looks funny for a new dinosaur
T’ be in an old dinosaur’s shoes
Dina Shore’s shoes
Dinosaur shoes
C’mon down to the big dig
You can’t get around the big dig
C’mon to the big dig
Ya can’t get around the big dig
Singin’ the Smithsonian Institute blues
