lyrics

LAKES:
Something very big
'Neath a rocky ridge's shadow
On a field in Colorado
Something very big

MAILMAN:
So he wrote a letter to Marsh.

LAKES:
Something very old
Lying there like trees I found 'em
Couldn't get my arms around 'em
Something very big

MARSH:
(reading letter)
Something very big
'Neath a rocky ridge's shadow

MAILMAN:
But he also wrote to Cope.

MARSH:
On a field in Colorado
Something very big

Something very old
Laying there like leaves I found 'em
Couldn't get my arms around 'em
Something very big

So I sit near bones of giants
Writing to a man of science
On the prairie

COPE:
(reading his identical letter)
Something very big
'Neath a rocky ridge's shadow
On a field in Colorado
Something very big

Something very old
Laying there like trees I found 'em
Couldn't stretch my arms around 'em
Something very big

There are bones

Lakes:
So I sit near bones of giants
Writing to a man of science
On the prairie
There's something very big

Something very big
'Neath a rocky ridge's shadow
On a field in Colorado

ALL THREE:
Something very big

COPE AND MARSH:
This is something so colossal
Something more than just a fossil
This'll push my star far as it can go
And the best part is

MARSH:
That Cope

COPE:
That Marsh

BOTH:
Doesn't know!
