We made up our own song to the tune of “We Will Rock You”…called “We will Stomp You” It’s difficult for the children to clap , stomp and sing at the same time, so we only stomp and clap on the chorus. We stand and do appropriate motions to the verses of the song .
We start out: stomp, stomp, clap (4 times)
I’m ankylosaurus I’m big and strong; 10 feet tall and 30 feet long.
I’ve got a club on my tail, Armor on my back;
Don’t get too close Or I’ll give you a whack.
Chorus: We will , we will stomp you, stomp you. We will, we will stomp you, stomp you.
Stegosaurus is my name. A little walnut is the size of my brain.
On my back are seventeen plates. Leaves and plants Are what I ate.
Repeat “stomp you” chorus.
I’m tyrannosaurus rex I’m big and mean.
The meanest dinosaur That you’ve ever seen.
I’ve got tiny little arms, Great big feet;
I’ll pick you up With my big sharp teeth.
I will, I will, Chomp you, chomp you. I will ,I will CHOMP YOU !!!
A dinosaur went walking out into the sun, Looking for some friends and hoping for some fun.
Along came a butterfly as pretty as could be. “Hello,” said the dinosaur. ” Come and play with me!”
Along came a little bee as busy as could be, “Hello,” said the dinosaur. “Come and play with me!”
Along came a turtle as poky as could be, “Hello” said the dinosaur. “Come and play with me!”
A dinosaur went walking out into the sun, Playing with new friends and having lots of fun!
Triceratops (Sung to Three Blind Mice)
Look and see. One, two, three.
Count with me. One, two, three.
Triceratops has three big horns.
That’s the way that he was born.
One, two, three. One, two, three.
Allosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brontosaurus too,
They all went off together at the Dinosaur Zoo.
Along came the waiter called Tyrannosaurus Rex,
Gobbled up the table cause they wouldn’t pay their checks!
Sung to the tune of “glory glory hallelujah”
I love to stomp and chomp and romp throughout the land I love to stomp and chomp and romp throughout the land OH I love to stomp and romp throughout the land how I love to be a dinosaur
OH it’s great to be a dinosaur Oh its great to be a dinosaur, Oh its great to be a dinosaur just to stomp and romp throughout the land
( we sing it twice through )
This song is always a hit when we study dinosaurs. I don’t think the tune is anything that would be familiar but it is sung in the minor key.
I am a stegosaurus I’m a funny looking dinosaur. On my back are many bony plates And on my tail are more. My front two legs are very, very short. My back two legs are long. My body’s big, my head is very small, I’m put together wrong! Stegosaurus dinosaur, Stegosaurus dinosaur, Stegosaurus dinosaur… roar.
