  • Boom boom acka-lacka lacka boom
    Boom boom acka-lacka boom boom

    It was a night like this forty million years ago
    I lit a cigarette, picked up a monkey skull to go
    The sun was spitting fire, the sky was blue as ice
    I felt a little tired, so I watched Miami Vice
    And walked the dinosaur, I walked 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

    I met you in a cave, you were painting buffalo
    I said I'd be your slave, 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
    And walked the dinosaur, I walked 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

    One night I dreamed of New York
    You and I roasting blue pork
    In the Statue of Liberty's torch
    Elvis landed in a rocket ship
    Healed a couple of leapers and disappeared
    But where was his beard?

    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 killed the dinosaur, I killed the dinosaur

    Open the door, get on the floor
    Everybody kill the dinosaur
    Open the door, get on the floor
    Everybody kill the dinosaur
    Open the door, get on the floor
    Everybody kill the dinosaur
    Open the door, get on the floor
    Everybody kill the dinosaur
    Repeat chorus 2 one time
    Boom boom acka-lacka lacka boom
    Boom boom acka-lacka boom boom Writer/s: David Jay Weiss, Donald E. Fagenson, Randall Keith Jacobs

  • Bo from AlabamaDoes look like her , but I would like to know the name of the girl in back with the sunglasses on.
  • Buskieboy from Brampton, OnI just came across the video of this song on YouTube. There are 4 "Cavegirls" in the video and I
    SWEAR one of them is Elisabeth Shue, from "Karate Kid", "Adventures in Babysitting" and "CSI"!
    She is the cute one with the short blond hair. Is this an unaccredited role? Perhaps she was doing
    someone a favor?
