I am not sure if this is what Taliah is looking for but Anne suggested
posting this to the list. I saved this from a posting on LM_Net some time
ago. The poems are from Jack Prelutsky's books A Pizza the Size of the Sun
and Tyrannosaurus Was a Beast and someone named Kathy had put them to various
tunes. Apologies for not having more detailed information but here is the

Tyrannosaurus:  Mary had a little lamb
Brachiosaurus:  On top of Old Smokey
Leptopterygius:  The streets of Laredo
Stegosaurus:  When Johnny Comes Marching Home
Dinonychus:  Grandfather's Clock
Ankylosaurus:  99 bottles of beer on the wall
Diplodocus:  Pop Goes the Weasel
Coelophysis:  Yankee Doodle
Triceratops:  Solomon Levi
Corythosaurus:  Skip to My Lou
Allosaurus:  Row, row, row your boat
Iguanadon:  O Christmas Tree
Quetzacoatlus:  The daring young man on the flying trapeze
Seismosaurus:  Twinkle twinkle little star

My ideas from _A Pizza the Size of the Sun_:
Eyeballs for Sale:  Hush little baby
My Elephant is Different:  Oh Susanna or Go Tell it on the Mountain
The Puppy Made off with my Slippers:  Red River Valley
A Frog, A Stick:  Tell Me Why
A Fine Head of Lettuce:  There's a Hole in the Bucket
A Pizza the Size of the Sun:  On Top of Old Smokey
Miss Misinformation:  Yankee Doodle
Oh Mother, I Am Blue Today:  Amazing Grace
News Brief:  Clementine
A Pelican:  The Streets of Laredo
K. C. O'Fleer:  Home on the Range
Hurry Grandma Hurry:  I've been working on the railroad

It was also mentioned that many of his poems could be sung to Battle Hymn of
the Republic.
