The fossil record

Books on geology keep referring to “the fossil record”, but never define what it is.

They say the fossil record
Can date a rocky layer.
(That’s odd, because I’ve yet to see
A fossil record player . . .)

“I dunno what you’re sayin’,”
A nearby fossil said,
“You youngsters think yer know it all.
Get this inside yer ’ead:

“Yer gets a fossil record
If yer does a fossil crime.
(I can’t remember what I done,
But I done a lotta time . . .)”
