Fossil lumberjack

I want to go excavating
 For dinosaur bones
 Got my checkered shirt
 Camera too
 Though I might need to get some
 Better outdoor shoes

They call me the fossil lumberjack
 Always was the nerd
 With dinosaur biscuits in his backpack
 Playing dinosaur trumps
 Till we lost or won
 Or maybe that was
 Just yesterday

Don’t mistake me
 For a hipster
 Though I’m
 Still a kid at heart
 The cigarettes between my fingers
 The only sign of adulthood
