All Around the Swamp
(Tune: "Wheels on the Bus")
The Pterandon's wings went flap, flap, flap
Flap-flap-flap, flap-flap-flap,
The Pterandon's wings went flap, flap, flap
All around the swamp

The Tyrannaraurus Rex went grr-grr-grr…
The Triceratops' horn went poke, poke, poke…
The Brontasaurus went munch, munch, munch…
The Stegosaurus' tail went spike, spike, spike…

(Tune: "Mary Had A Little Lamb")
Our dinosaur has a scary face,
Scary face, scary face
Our dinosaur has a scary face
And lived a long time ago.

Repeat with: Big green body, Swishy tail, Long sharp claws and Stomping feet

Dino Pokey
(Tune: "Hokey Pokey")
You put your claws in
You put your claws out
You put your claws in
And you scratch them all about
You do the Dino Pokey
And you turn yourself about.
That's what it's all about.

You put your feet in...
You put your teeth in...
You put your tail in...

Five Hugs Dinosaurs
Five huge dinosaurs, sleeping on the cave floor
One got up and started to roar
"I want more! I want more ROOM!"
And out she went with a boom, boom, boom
(repeat until none are left)

Five Little Dinosaurs
(Tune: "Five Little Monkeys")
Five little dinosaurs jumping on the bed
Triceratops fell of and bumped his head!
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
"No more dinosaurs jumping on the bed!"

Repeat with: Stegosaurus, Pteradactyl, Tyrannosaurus and Brontosaurus

Five Yawning Dinosaurs
(Tune: "Row Your Boat")
Five yawning dinosaurs
Nod their sleepy heads
One picks up his teddy bear
And shuffles off to bed.

(Countdown until none are left)

One Dinosaur Went Out to Play
One dinosaur went out to play
On a giant fern one day
She had such enormous fun
That she called for another dinosaur to come:
(Oh, Dinosaur!)

Ten Little Dinos
One little, two little, three little dinosaurs
Four little, five little, six little dinosaurs
Seven little, eight little, nine little dinosaurs
Ten dinosaurs are hatching...

Repeat with: "One little, two little, three Stegosaurus," etc.)
