Fifty million years ago
You walked upon the planet so
Lord of all that you could see
Just a little bit like me

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

Hey Mr. Dinosaur
You really couldn't ask for more
You were God's favorite creature
But you didn't have a future

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

Hey mighty brontosaurus
Don't you have a lesson for us
You thought your rule would always last
There were no lessons in your past
You were built three stories high
They say you would not hurt a fly
If we explode the atom bomb
Would they say that we were dumb
We're

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

They say the meek shall inherit the earth
They say the meek shall inherit the earth

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

Walking in your footsteps
Walking in your footsteps

    General CommentIt's obviously a relic from the Nuclear Age (see "Russians"). Yet its wisdom carries onward. A somewhat common theme among Sting's songs ("History Will Teach Us Nothing") is how we ignore "lessons in our past." How does this play out in the Terrorism Age? A viewing of Steven Spielberg's "Munich" I think provides some ideas.
