If I was a dinosaur
I'd be a Reginasaurus
And if I knew a million words
I'd have my own Spektor's thesaurus
If I was born in the merry month of May
Then I would be a Taurus
And if I had a little extra time on my hands
Then I'd surely join a chorus
Bum, bum, bum

If I was a philosophy
I'd be Reginalism
And if people spoke using quotes of me
They'd speak reginaisms

If I was a religion of me
Then my church would have a schism
They'd be Regewish and Registian and Reguslim and Reguddist and Regatheists
But they'd still be friends!

If I was a great big city
I'd be Reginapolis
And no one would be hungry or cold
In my thriving metropolis
Of course some people might get a real bad case of Reginaitis
It's a headache and a heart ache
And a something and a little bit of acute gastritis
Bum, bum, bum

But if I was a dinosaur
I'd be a Reginasaurus
And if a knew a million words
I'd have my own Spektor's thesaurus
If I was born in the merry month of May
Then I would be a Taurus
And if I had a little extra time on my hands
Then I'd surely join a chorus

    General CommentThis seems like a little poem someone would doodle in their notebook during a boring class (aka math). And I love how she sings it that way. It's adorable. I only wish I had written this cute little tune.

    General CommentI have a version of this, which I like muchhhh better than the ACTUAL lyrics. She sort of... forgets some in my version, and she is a little more free spirited I think. It's really cute. :3

    General CommentThis is my favorite acappella song ever. And it doesn't hurt that it's by Regina Spektor. :]
    But, this post is riddled with rudimentary spelling errors.
    Was someone asleep/drunk when they wrote this?
