Lyrics (1997)[]

All but Chuck E.: Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom

Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom

All: Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom

Jasper: It was a day like this forty million years ago
I lit a flaming torch, picked up a monkey tail to go (Chuck E.: WHOA!!!)
Pasqually: The sun was spitting fire, the sky was blue as ice
Munch: I felt a little tired, so I watched Miami Vice

Helen: I walked a dinosaur, I walked a dinosaur

All: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur

Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom (Helen: Hey, hey)
Boom-boom, acka-lacka-lacka, boom
Boom-boom, acka-lacka, boom-boom (Helen: Oh, oh)

Chuck E.: I met you in a cave, you were painting buffalo
I said I'd be so brave, follow you wherever you go
Helen: That night we split a rattlesnake and danced beneath the stars
You fell asleep, I stayed awake and watched the passing cars

And walked a dinosaur, I walked a dinosaur

All: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur

Pasqually: One night I dreamed of New York
You and I were toasting a fire by the Statue of Liberty's torch
Munch: Chuck E. landed in a rock-rock-rocket ship
Had a couple of pizzas, and then disappeared
Helen and Jasper: But where was his beard?

(Instrumental)

Helen: A shadow from the sky, much too big to be a bird
Jasper: A screaming, crashing noise louder than I've ever heard
Munch: It looked like two big silver trees that somehow learned to soar
Pasqually: Suddenly a summer breeze and a mighty lion's roar

Chuck E.: I walked the dinosaur, yeah, I walked the dinosaur, yeah

All: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur

Chuck E.: It was a night like this forty million years ago
I stopped by Chuck E. Cheese, picked up a pizza to go
The sun was spitting fire, the sky was blue as ice
I felt a little tired, so I watched Miami Vice
I walked a dinosaur, I walked a dinosaur

All but Chuck E.: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor

Chuck E.: I met you in a cave, you were painting buffalo
I said I'd be okay, follow wherever you go
That night we split a rattlesnake and danced beneath the stars
You fell asleep, I stayed awake and watched the passing cars
I walked a dinosaur, I walked a dinosaur

All but Chuck E.: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur

Chuck E.: One night I dreamed of New York (Pasqually: oh I've been there!)
You and I were toasting a fire by the Statue of Liberty's torch (Pasqually: yeah my arm was up real high and it tickled. *laughs*)
Pasqually landed in a rock-rock-rocket ship
Had a couple of pizzas, and then disappeared
Helen: But where did he go? (Pasqually: yeah plenty of gas for lift off. *laughs*)

(Instrumental)

Chuck E.: A shadow from the sky, much too big to be a bird
A screaming, crashing noise louder than I've ever heard
It looked like two big silver trees that somehow learned to soar
Suddenly a summer breeze and a mighty lion's roar
I walked the dinosaur, yeah, I walked the dinosaur, yeah

All but Chuck E.: Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
Open the door, get on the floor
Everybody walk the dinosaur
