03 Dorothy the Dinosaur

Lyrics

I was looking out my window late the other night

She was sitting in the garden and gave me such a fright

Eating all Mum's roses there in the moonlight

It was Dorothy the Dinosaur

I knew that if Mum saw her, she'd never let her stay

A dinosaur that's big is that it's feeding night and day

I'd have to find a place where I could hide her away

Dorothy the Dinosaur

CHORUS

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Dorothy the Dinosaur (Chomp)

I knew that she was so big that she'd soon be found

My mother called the dogcatcher; he came around

When he laid his eyes on her, he fell to the ground

"Now I take it, that's Dorothy the Dinosaur!"

CHORUS

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Dorothy the Dinosaur, Chomp

They called up the police to take her right away

They called up the zoo to find a place to stay

I said they couldn't take her, I said "No way,

That's Dorothy the Dinosaur!"

"That's me."

CHORUS (2 TIMES)
