The Role of Impacts in the Evolution of the Atmosphere and Biosphere with Regard to Short- and Long Terms Changes
(Slow blues in E for voice, guitar, and blues harmonica.)
1) I woke up this morning; saw a big rock in the sky.
I woke up this morning; I knew I was gonna die.
It's the end of an era; I knew I was gonna die.
2) We were much bigger than the rats and fish.
We were the kings on the land and the sea.
But when that stone came down, we disappeared from the scene.
3) 65 million years - it's a date to recall.
65 million years - enough time for you all.
If you see a stone in the sky, sing the DINOSAUR BLUES.
The dinosaurs became extinct because they lacked a sense of humor.
