“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’” he wrote.
The lyrics were purely her own creation, Rosenthal says. She sings:
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
But they didn’t say goodbyyye
But they didn’t say Good Bye
When he first played the finished song for his daughter, Rosenthal told Mashable she had some constructive feedback; “Comically she was actually quite critical of the middle section when she was talking rather than singing,” he explained, “but then she made me play it to her about five times.”
The video has been viewed over 3 million times as of Thursday morning.
Nevertheless, success has not gone to Fenn’s head as Rosenthal revealed to CNN; “She can just about count to 20 so she doesn’t really get it if I say that millions of people have listened to the song I told her that her grandma liked it and she wasn’t that fussed about that. She enjoyed doing it, she listened to it when it was done and then she was gone.”
