03 Dorothy the Dinosaur

Lyrics

1991 Version

Greg: 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

Wiggles:Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Greg: 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
Anthony: (as the Dog Catcher) "Now I take it, that's Dorothy the Dinosaur!"

Wiggles: 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

Greg: 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"

Wiggles: Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Greg: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Chomp


1998 Version

Greg: 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

Carolyn Ferrie: (as Dorothy) (giggles)

Wiggles: Chomp

Greg: 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

Carolyn Ferrie: (as Dorothy) Ooh, roses! I like it here!

Wiggles: Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Greg: 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

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

Carolyn Ferrie: (as Dorothy) Oh, my stomach hurts. I'm still hungry. Do you think I could get some roses in the back garden now?

Wiggles: Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Greg: 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"

Dorothy: That's me.

Wiggles: Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Carolyn Ferrie: (as Dorothy) (giggles) Roses.

Greg: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Chomp

Wiggles: Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp
Romp Bomp a Chomp, Romp Bomp a Chomp

Greg: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Chomp

Carolyn Ferrie: (as Dorothy) (giggles)
