Song Lyrics

Well, you push your arms up in the air from side to side
Then the next thing we do is sing Romp Bomp A Chomp (Romp Bomp A Chomp)
Then you stamp your feet and we're doing the romp bomp a stomp

Romp Bomp A Stomp (Romp Bomp A Stomp)
Romp Bomp A Chomp (Romp Bomp A Chomp)
Romp Bomp A Stomp (Romp Bomp A Stomp)
Romp Bomp A Chomp (Romp Bomp A Chomp)
Well, it's Dorothy's dance and we're doing the romp bomp a stomp

Repeat

Trivia

  • The version of the song used in the Movie, as well as most appearances afterward omit Dorothy's lines, and the instruments and backing vocals are mixed differently than the original 1996 version. Thus, it is not considered a re-recording, but is still noticeably different.
    • TV Series 3 used the 1996 audio, while TV Series 5 used the 1997 audio, despite the latter showing Dorothy mime her (missing) lines.
  • The 2013 version was featured as a bonus music clip on the DVD release of Taking Off!.
  • A commonly discussed topic is the 1997/1998 music video, which clips of can be seen in the TV Series 1 intro. It was rumored to have appeared in the original Australian airing of the episode Haircut in place of Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car (due to it being the only song from that video to appear in the series), but the original airing of that episode has surfaced online and it's not there. It was also thought to have appeared as a Let's Wiggle segment, but the version of Romp Bomp a Stomp used there was the 1996 version. Currently, it's unknown if a full version of the music video does exist, if it ever even did. Some people claim it used to be on YouTube (around 2012), but this number is very few when compared to how many people still active in The Wiggles' online community were on YouTube when the music video supposedly was.
    • It's worth noting that this is the only music video to have clips appear in the intro, just as the also unreleased Balloon Chase is the only Chase scene to appear in the intro. It's possible neither of these videos were ever fully completed, and to make the footage useful they put brief clips in the intro.
  • On Xuxa's album and video "Xuxa Só Para Baixinhos", the Brazilian version is called Rampa Na Mão.
  • The English version plays in A whereas the Brazillian version plays in A-sharp.
  • This was the last song until Hey, Hey, Hey We're All Pirate Dancing in 2000 where Anthony is seen playing the drums.
  • To this day, there has not been a single, video apperence, or album showcase of this song in since the current generation of wiggles. It has only appered in live shows and tv episodes.
