about

Marsh and Cope head west, both hoping to find the best fossils first. Marsh gets his expedition together without much trouble, but Cope has a little bit of a harder time...

lyrics

MARSH:
There is a land that is calling, can't you hear it?
How can you rest 'til we're western bound?
We're living in a country with a proud and noble spirt
That spirit is discovery, my boy!

There is a treasure that's ripe for the taking
Fantastic plunder deep underground
Let's strike out for adventure that's a legend in the making
A legend of discovery, my boy!

Discovery, my boy
Our way of making history
In time you'll come to love
The feeling of
A new discovery!

COPE:
Now is the moment to rise above your station
And hear your name ring with fame profound
You know there is a reason we were born unto this nation
That reason is discovery, my boys!

Discovery my boys
Don't drop this opportunity!
You're standing right above
The dig site of
A new discovery!

MARSH:
There is a reason we care about the credit
The guarantee that you'll be renowned
It's all about who found it and who wrote it and who said it
Who dug up the discovery, my boys!

BOTH:
Discovery my boys
Will make or break who we will be
So push may come to shove
To grab hold of
A new discovery...

NARRATOR:
Da da da da

MARSH:
It's name should be Netharctus

COPE:
I already named it Loxolodon

MARSH:
Dinoceras, Tinoceras

COPE:
Eobasileus

MARSH
Telmalestes!

COPE:
Thinolestes!

BOTH:
Wrong!

Discovery, my boys
Can nurse and worsen rivalry
We're throwing down a glove
In dreaming of
A new discovery!
