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

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!"

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"

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
