Richardson Rex - Dinosaur

Story Behind The Song

At home on my birthday. Nobody called (except my manager/doesn't count) or gave me a party. So I was feeling old and Unwanted, so I sat down at the keyboard and out came Rex. Feeling Like I'm Extinct. Added some guitar and wrote the song on the afternoon of my birthday.

Song Description

Song of a man who doesn't know where he belongs. He looks a bit old, but is still a young boy inside. But the young women don't want him and society caters to children these days. People don't appreciate someone who has something to say if they are a bit older and wiser. If you love this dinosaur you'll find out I've seen a lot of things, Maybe I could teach you some.

Let me tell you a story, I?m Richardson Rex
One day I woke up, I was old, You can guess the rest
Don?t know where I belong, Only know where I?ve come from
I still wanna? Rock ?n Roll, Wanna? have some fun
Richardson Rex, Richardson Rex, I?m a dinosaur
Not quite done ain?t had enough, I want more
Not quite done ain?t had enough, I want more
Some day it could happen, You could look just like me
The years they slip away, And they creep up so quickly
Richardson Rex, Dinosaur, I?m not finished, I wanna? hear the crowd roar
Behind these blue eyes, There?s still a young boy
When I see you walking towards me girl, My heart fills with joy
I fall in love every day, About a hundred times
All those girls that I want so badly, Never gonna be mine
They don?t want no dinosaur, They don?t want me any more
Look at him he?s a dinosaur, They don?t want me any more
Richardson Rex, I?m practically extinct, What are they gonna do to me next
When I walk down the street, I fell like a young boy,
When I look at the pretty girls, My heart?s filled with joy
Now could you love this dinosaur, I?m Mr. Richardson Rex
If you answer the question correctly, You can guess the rest
Behind these blue eyes, I?m still a young boy
IF you talk nice to me, Maybe I could share my toys
I?ve seen a lot of things, you know, Maybe I could teach you some
