BackgroundEdit

While being interviewed by Rolling Stone, Ke$ha was asked about her writing technique and how her songs come to fruition, which she explained using "Dinosaur" as an example. The singer explained that the song's conception was auto-biographical and that it stemmed from a previous experience she had when an older man had been hitting on her, which she elaborated on: "I just write about what I live — literally, my entire record is totally autobiographical, because I think there's a great pop song in anything and everything, any situation. There's a song called 'Dinosaur' about this old guy who was hitting on me, and his toupee was kind of falling off, and I was like, 'Oh my God, you're so old, you're prehistoric, you're like a dinosaur. D-I-N-O-S-A-you are a dinosaur.'"[1]

LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
And O-L-D- M-A-N you're just an old man
Hittin' on me what you need a CAT scan

Old man why are you starin' at me
Mack on me and my friends it's kinda creepy
You should be prowlin' around the old folk's home
Come on dude leave us alone
At first we thought that it was kinda ill when
We saw that you were like a billion
And still out tryin' to make a killin'
Get back to the museum

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
And O-L-D- M-A-N you're just an old man
Hittin' on me what you need a CAT scan

Hey dinosaur baby you're pre-historic
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha
Hey carnivore you want my meat I know it
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha

Yeah you're pretty old

Not long 'til you're a senior citizen
And you can strut around with that sexy tank of oxygen
Honey your toupee is fallin' to your left side
Get up and go bro oh wait you're fossilized ha

You sit down buy me a martini
Won't go away my hints aren't sinkin'
Hey you say wanna come with me
I'm about to barf seriously

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
And O-L-D M-A-N you're just an old man
Hittin' on me what you need a CAT scan

Hey dinosaur baby you're pre-historic
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha
Hey carnivore you want my meat I know it
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha

Hey dinosaur baby you're pre-historic
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha
Hey carnivore you want my meat I know it
Hey dinosaur that's what you are ha

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A that's what you are ha
D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A that's what you are ha

Demo version 1Edit

Hittin' on me boy

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
A D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
An O-L-D man you're an old man
Hittin' on me boy You need a CAT scan

Old man why are you starin' at me
Mack on me and my friend it's kind creepy
You should be prowlin' around the old folks home
Come on brother leave us alone

At first I thought that it was kinda funny
That you're the age of my grandpa pappy
But for real I know you got lots of money
But I still won't get down with you honey

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
A D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
An O-L-D man you're an old man
Hittin' on me boy You need a CAT scan

Not long 'til you're a senior citizen
And you can strut around with that sexy bag of oxygen
Honey your toupee is fallin' to your left side
Get up and go brother save yourself a little pride

You sit down buy me a martini
Won't go away my hints aren't sinking
Hey you say wanna come with me
I'm about to barf seriously

Hey buddy are those teeth real
Yeah how many times have you been married
Seriously I mean are you wearing your diapers
Kesh they're called Depends
Honey it's bingo night
You're missing bingo night
Well Kesh it's not even that
It's past his bedtime anyway
He needs to go home and get tucked in
And take his teeth out and take all those pills
Totally I mean what skeezy old guy just hangs around a bar
And hits on cute young girl anyway
He must have amnesia and lost his way
And somehow wondered in here
Aw he must think that like we're his grandkids
No, no sir no we're not
Bingo night that's way
Turn around okay
No skeezy old guys for us
Thank you thanks have a good night
Have a goodnight buddy see you

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
An O-L-D man you're an old man
Hitting on me boy You need a CAT scan

D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
A D-I-N-O-S-A you are a dinosaur
An O-L-D man you're just an old man
Hittin' on me boy
