Liner Notes: 

Wacha says - Liz wrote these fun lyrics that loved and @spirulence offered to write music but didn't feel like this was a song he could sing so I offered to record vocals. I loved working on this, it was so much fun!

I didn't plan on mixing this but @spirulence has been MIA since I sent him this. I hope he is ok.

Lyrics: 

V1
she asked,
“Mom, were there
lesbian dinosaurs
one hundred million
years ago?”

I said,
“there aren’t any
lesbian dinosaurs
alive who would
really know
so I’m not quite sure ....
but, yes,
I do think so,
I suppose”

PC1
and then I kissed her head
and sang her this song
pulling her blanket up
to keep her warm

C
may the lavender lesbian dinosaurs
and their friends with sparkly
bright purple horns
prance through your dreams
in the moonlight all night
to keep you safe from harm

V3
she asked,
“Mom do you think
lesbian dinosaurs
liked rainbows and
unicorns?”

I said,
“there aren’t any
lesbian dinosaurs
so I’m a
little torn
probably rainbows ...
and those
unicorns with
bright purple horns”

PC2
and then I gave one last hug
and sang her this song
tiptoeing quietly out her
bedroom door

C
may the lavender lesbian dinosaurs
and their friends with sparkly
bright purple horns
prance through your dreams
in the moonlight all night
to keep you safe from harm

V3
then she asked,
“Mom, do you think
lesbian dinosaurs
always had
such questions
fill their heads?”

I said
“I don’t know if
lesbian dinosaurs’
had questions
before bed
but I know it’s
bedtime now
for their
purple horned
unicorn friends”

This is great! I remember reading the lyrics ages ago and loved them. This really brings them into a whole new stratosphere. What a superb collaboration.

This is really fun! I get Pat Benatar vibes from those vocals. Love the vivid imagery of the lavender lesbian dinosaurs with sparkly horns.

A super three-way collab with clever and cute lyric, prehistoric hinting music, and the otherworldly vocals.

Thanks for doing this, @wacha! It's been a crazy past couple weeks here and I haven't really been doing anything other than driving and working. Stellar soulful vocals and great lyrics by @kahlo2013 as usual! I think the small tweaks you put in here and there worked really well with the pacing of the music, which is admittedly in a very different style than bedtime song.

Sounds like a discofied B-52s song to me! Lots of bouncy fun and a fantastical lyric. Great singing, Catherine. Wonderful collab, y'all!
