The Lyrics

Nuff said.
The T-rex
The T-rex
The T-rex

Is a big dinosaur
That is locked up in Jurassic Park
I tell you it's going to eat us all
Its roar is louder than a bark
It has very sharp teeth and claws
We'll escape
Before it's too late
This park is not worth for visitin'
And it gets so hard to escape

T-rex tries to kill us
Why would it eat us?
Why does it hate us?

T-rex tries to kill us
Why would it eat us?
Why does it hate us?

The T-rex is a bad dino
Who lurks in Jurassic Park
The T-rex is a dino that's chasin'
Us in the dark
And actin' like we're fried chicken
Isn't that bizare
The T-rex can squash us like bugs
But he can't escape from Jurassic Park

I'm on a ride in a helicopter
But I'm still being chased by the T-rex
Along with some ferocious raptors
Don't want to come back to the dinosaurs

Why would they kill us?

The T-rex is a bad dino
Who lurks in Jurassic Park
The T-rex is a dino that's chasin'
Us in the dark
And actin' like we're fried chicken
Isn't that bizare
The T-rex can squash us like bugs
But he can't escape from Jurassic Park

T-rex tries to kill us
Why would it eat us?
Why does it hate us?

The T-rex is a bad dino
Who lurks in Jurassic Park
The T-rex is a dino that's chasin'
Us in the dark
And actin' like we're fried chicken
Isn't that bizare
The T-rex can squash us like bugs
But he can't escape from Jurassic Park

A funny idea to use against the original song, but it got repititious.

No, T-Rex is really not all that bad. He just wants to play his guitar and sing "Get It On, Bang A Gong".

Listen, Agrimorfee, I looked over the lyrics of "The Reflex" and just like my parody, the last lyrics of the original song is repeated.
Agrimorfee - June 10, 2004 - Report this comment
I was only saying that because it repeated the same chorus over and over even though I liked it. Most parody writers (especially Weird Al) take the time to change the words of the chorus each time it appears. I'm not saying it's a hard and fast rule, but sometimes a song just cries for it, IMHO.
