This 3-year-old’s Dinosaur Love Song is hilariously brutal
Musician and songwriter Tom Rosenthal‘s almost-year-old daughter, Fenn, has a glittering career ahead of her as a chip off the old block, if her recent composition ‘Dinosaurs in Love’ is anything to go by.
Update: we had previously reported her age as four, but she’s not quite there yet.
Tom gave Fenn the chance to record something in his home studio, and she freestyled like a boss.
Hear it for yourself.
Fenn, my nearly 4 year old daughter, recorded her first ever solo song today. She came up with all the words herself and I helped her a little bit with the tune. It’s called ‘Dinosaurs in Love’. 🦕❤️🦕 pic.twitter.com/erCgG0sUvP

“Dinosaurs eating people.
Dinosaurs in love.
Dinosaurs having a party,
They eat fruit and cucumber.
They fell in love.
They say “thank you”.
A big bang came
And they died.
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs fell in love,
Buy they didn’t say “goodbyyye.”
But they didn’t say “good …bye.”
Clearly a work of genius. A brutal genius, but nonetheless.
Almost two and a half million people have heard the song since it was posted on Tuesday, and they love it.
This is the best thing you will hear this year. https://t.co/RXB8vA0Xdq

I believe this is geo-historically completely accurate.

Some people thought the song was rather reminiscent of this work by the talented Ben Cameron.

Ben added this:
I’ve never felt a stronger urge to animate a doodle to match a song

We’d love to see that.
Finally, the Natural History Museum had a strong reaction, as you’d expect.

Well, they do have bones in the game.
