Bone Wars, Marsh and Cope: to the Tune of "Two Black Cadillacs" (Stegosaurus Week)

One of a pair of songs that I made especially for Stegosaurus Week!  "Bone Wars, Marsh and Cope" to the tune of "Two Black Cadillacs" by Carrie Underwood.  Below is the link to the song:

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Full Lyrics:

1800s, Morrison, a big find was made
"If Cope got a bone, Marsh lost," Dr. Bakker say
They devoted their life,
To get the most bones, each other they'd fight
Two rivals fighting over fossils in the dirt and grime


And the teacher, Lakes, he was a good man
And Marsh and Cope, they used to be friends
But then the two of them wanted the other to die
Bye, Bye bye, Bye
1,500 species they wrote down
Dug them all out of rock and from the deep ground
They both refused to work together on the same side
Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye

Bone Wars, Marsh and Cope

Eleven years ago researchers found some more fossil bone
123 years they'd been buried there for oh so long
Matthew Mossbrucker, from the Morrison Natural History Museum
The site had been reburied, waiting for the right time, right time


Even now some of the fossils in rocks and time are still encased
Mystries and new species found in the Quarry
Learning new secrets from the grave


Are you diggin' the songs?  Well, then check out our playlist below!
