"Dorothy's Birthday Party" is the 2nd song about Dorothy the Dinosaur, telling the story of her birthday party and how all her friends came and celebrated. It was rewritten for the Short Story segment in Yummy Yummy, and rewritten and re-recorded again in 1998 for Wiggle Time (re-recording).

Song Lyrics

Original Version

Well, you know about Dorothy the Dinosaur

But that's not the end of the tale.

When I tell you what happened on her birthday,

I know it'll make you turn pale.


It happened on the 3rd of November

When Dorothy was turning 5.

100 ding-a-ling dinosaurs

Were in the garden doing the jive.


It was a dinosaur Birthday Party.

I'm the one Mum and Dad will blame.

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses they stomped.

The garden will never be the same.


There was Rex the Tyrannosaurus

Doing his party tricks.

And the pterodactyl twisters

Playing their greatest hits.


They played "pass the prehistoric parcel"

And mastodon musical chairs.

Why does this always happen to me?

You know it's really not fair.


It was a dinosaur Birthday Party.

I'm the one Mum and Dad will blame.

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp, through the roses they stomped.

The garden will never be the same.


I saw 22 brontosauruses

Dancing the boogaloo.

Mum and Dad were due home any tick of the clock.

Now what was I to do?


It was a dinosaur Birthday Party.

I'm the one Mum and Dad will blame.

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses they stomped.

The garden will never be the same. (repeat)

1994 Version

Well, you know about Dorothy the Dinosaur

But that's not the end of the tale.

When I tell you what happened on her birthday

I know it'll make you turn pale.


It happened on a very special day

When Dorothy was turning 5

There's 100 ding-a-ling dinosaurs

In the garden doing the jive.


Well, it's Dorothy's Birthday Party

Everybody's playing party games

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses we stomp

The garden will never be the same.


Well, Dorothy's friends, The Wiggles

Were giving her a big surprise.

And Lucy was hanging her streamers

On her ladder way up high.


There was Captain Feathersword the pirate

Taking Dorothy's cake.

I hope that he doesn't eat it all up

Or he'll get a belly ache.


Well, it's Dorothy's Birthday Party

Everybody's playing party games

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses we stomp

The garden will never be the same. (repeat)


Cha-cha-cha!

1998 Version

Dorothy: It's my party and you're all invited!

Greg: Well, you know about Dorothy the Dinosaur

But now I'll tell you some more

About what happened on the party

For Dorothy the Dinosaur.

Dorothy: That's me!


It happened on the 3rd of November

When Dorothy was turning 5.

Dorothy and all of the Wiggles' friends

Were in the garden doing the jive.


It was a dinosaur birthday party.

Everybody's playing party games.

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses we stomp.

The garden will never be the same.


There was Captain Feathersword the pirate

Doing his pirate dance.

Henry the Octopus was there

Wearing his 8 legged pants.


There was Wags the Dog barking away

Wags: Ruff!

Doing his party tricks.

Wags: Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!

Henry's underwater big band were there

Playing their greatest hits.


It was a dinosaur birthday party.

Dorothy: It's my party!

Everybody's playing party games.

Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp through the roses we stomp.

The garden will never be the same.
