Song Lyrics

Yummy Yummy (album)

Who's that in the garden
Eating all our red, red roses?
(It's Dorothy!)
She wears a floppy white hat
And has yellow spots galore.
Well, look at those big green paws
She's a very friendly dinosaur.
Ohhhh...

Chorus
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. Dorothy the Dinosaur (Talkin' 'bout)
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. She's my favourite dinosaur
Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp, hey!
Romp-Bomp-a-Chomp, hey!

She's a really helpful dinosaur,
She works so hard in the garden
(She's mowing, she's mowing)
She pulls out all the weeds,
Plants more roses as she mows the lawn
(She's mowing, she's mowing)
When the music starts, she dances on the floor
She's a really groovy dinosaur
Ohhhh...

Chorus

D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. Dorothy the Dinosaur (Talkin' 'bout)
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. she's my favorite dinosaur

Yummy Yummy (US album)

O.K., everyone, here's Dorothy!

Well, who's that in the garden
Eating all our red, red roses?
(It's Dorothy! - That's me.)
She wears a floppy white hat
And has yellow spots galore
(Nice spots, Dorothy - Thank you!)
Well, look at those big green paws (Wow!)
She's a very friendly dinosaur
Ohhhh...

CHORUS
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. Dorothy the Dinosaur (Talkin' bout)
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. she's my favorite dinosaur
Romp Bomp a Chomp, hey!
Romp Bomp a Chomp, hey!

(Oh, I think Dorothy's doing some gardening, guys.)

She's a really helpful dinosaur
She works so hard in the garden
(She's got her mower, She's mowing, she's mowing)
Yes, she pulls out all the weeds,
Plants more roses as she mows the lawn
(She's mowing, she's mowing)
When the music starts, she dances on the floor
Yes, she's a really groovy dinosaur
(Man, she's groovy)
Ohhhh...

CHORUS
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. Dorothy the Dinosaur (Talkin' 'bout)
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. she's my favorite dinosaur
(Groovy!)
Romp Bomp a Chomp, hey!
Romp Bomp a Chomp, hey!

(Come on, everyone, let's dance and sing with our friend Dorothy)

CHORUS

D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. Dorothy the Dinosaur (Talkin' 'bout)
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. she's my favorite dinosaur

Transcript from Yummy Yummy 1994

(Jeff dresses up as Dorothy the Dinosaur by putting on a hat and tail and Anthony arrives.)

Anthony: Hello. We're getting ready to meet our friend, Dorothy the Dinosaur. (Jeff tries putting the Dorothy tail behind but misses.) She's a really friendly dinosaur, Dorothy and whenever the Wiggles go sing and play, our friend, Dorothy the Dinosaur. And do you know what she sings? She sings Romp Bomp a Chomp, hey! Romp Bomp a Chomp, Hey! That's great except I'll tell you something else about Dorothy. Well, she loves...

(Jeff puts the Dorothy tail behind Anthony.)

What? I got a... I got a dinosaur tail. (Jeff laughs and gets the Dorothy hat.) Ah, well. Anyway, Dorothy, she loves roses because she eats roses all the time. She eats them day in and day out, Dorothy. Well, I'll tell you what. Why don't we meet Dorothy the Dinosaur. She's our favourite (Jeff puts the hat on top of him) dinosaur.

(Jeff laughs.)
