Flannelboard- Five Enormous Dinosaurs

Five enormous dinosaurs letting out a roar. ROAR!
One stomped away and then there were four.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Four enormous dinosaurs knocking down a tree. Clunk!
One stomped away and then there were three.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Three enormous dinosaurs eating tiger stew. Ew!
One stomped away and then there were two.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Two enormous dinosaurs sitting in the sun.
One flapped away and then there were one.
Flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, ROAR!

One enormous dinosaurs left all alone.
He stomped away and then there were none.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap,
The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
All around the swamp.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
Grr, grr, grr, grr, grr, grr,
The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
All around the swamp.

The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
Poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke,
The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
All around the swamp.

Additional Verses:
The brontosaurus went munch, munch, munch.
The stegosaurs’ tail went spike, spike, spike.

The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
Zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz,
The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
All around the swamp.
Shhhhhhhh.
