"The Legend of the Lone Dinosaur" is a song sung in The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock and The Land Before Time TV Series episode, "The Lone Dinosaur Returns".

Description

The song, "The Legend of the Lone Dinosaur" is sung by Littlefoot, as he tries to convince his friends that the mysterious Doc, a lone Longneck who has stopped in the Valley, is the Lone Dinosaur. The story Littlefoot tells is clearly made up, being farfetched, but this does not stop it from convincing the other youngsters that Doc is indeed the Lone Dinosaur (Though whether or not he actually is is never actually clarified in the film).

In the TV episode "The Lone Dinosaur Returns", it is sung by the kids again because Doc has returned for a visit, in particular to introduce his lady-friend, Dara, to Grandpa Longneck. The lyrics have changed slightly, as they are used to explain more about the "Lone Dinosaur" to Ruby and Chomper, who have never met Doc. Chomper is somewhat scared of Doc after his friends, particularly Cera, tell him how Doc fights Sharpteeth.

Lyrics

The Secret of Saurus Rock

Littlefoot
Long ago on a mountain top
a mighty egg was laid
Burned by the light of the circle bright
and cooled by the forest shade
Then one stormy evening when the icy rain did pour
out of the egg appeared the leg of the Lone Dinosaur

His neck was long and limber
his shoulders broad and lean
His eye was high as the mornin' sky
and his vision it was keen
He wandered strong and silent across the valley floor
and everybody called him the Lone Dinosaur

Dinosaur...

His tail was swift as lightning

Dinosaur...

His heart was brave and pure

Dinosaur...

Whenever times were frightening
call his name and he'd be there for sure
Lone Dinosaur

One day when he was roaming alone out in the west
A vicious pack of Sharpteeth came and gobbled up his nest
He tracked that pack of varmints and fought them by the score
He left them lying toothless


Petrie
Toothless?


Littlefoot
And he gave a mighty roar


Together
Dinosaur!


Littlefoot
He promised his protection


Together
Dinosaur!


Littlefoot
To the helpless and the poor


Together
Dinosaur!


Littlefoot
Whenever there was danger
They'd never be defenseless anymore
This he swore
The Lone Dinosaur


Together
Dinosaur...


Cera
His tail is swift as lightning


Together
Dinosaur...


Ducky
His heart is brave and pure


Together
Dinosaur...


Petrie
Whenever times are frightening
he'll be there to fight the carnivore


Littlefoot
The Lone Dinosaur


Together
Ye-haa!


The Lone Dinosaur Returns

Ducky
His neck is long and limber
his shoulders broad and lean


Petrie
His eye be high as the mornin' sky
and his vision it be keen


Cera
He wanders strong and silent across the valley floor
and everybody calls him


Ducky joins in
The Lone Dinosaur


Together
Dinosaur!


Petrie
His tail be fast as lightnin'


Together
Dinosaur!


Ducky
His heart is brave and pure


Together
Dinosaur!


Chomper
He sounds like he is frightening


Cera
You don't wanna mess with him for sure


Chomper
The Lone Dinosaur


Together
Dinosaur
