  • Lyrics:   I was having this dream just the other night My teeth were clenched, and my hands were tight Around the neck of a purple dinosaur One we've all seen too many times before He said, "Hey, kid, you're supposed to love me Not scorn and abuse and smack and shove me!" "And anyway I'm a millionaire, If that bothers you, I really don't care!" CHORUS: (So I said) Hey there, Barney, have you heard the news? The pink elephants are gone, but I still see you In a world where greediness reigns supreme Say hello to the American nightmare, and goodbye to the dream I cried, hey, Jehovah, can it really be over? Have you seen enough for the day? It's either Michael Dukakis or the streptococcus But we're infected in so many ways Your experiment's out of control I guess With the wars & the hate and a whole mess Of Infections and diseases Jimmy Swaggart, praise Jesus! Is it too late to start again? Said is it too late to start again? You bet it is We're done - as in burned There's no sign that we've learned Either cancer from the sun, or a bullet from a gun Put you six feet under the ground Where you'll stay safe and sound Till the bulldozers come around To dig you up and spit you out CHORUS: (So I said) Hey there, Barney, have you heard the news? The pink elephants are gone, but I still see you In a world where greediness reigns supreme Say hello to the American nightmare, and goodbye to the dream Oh, God Part 4 - let me out the door I've seen enough for the day And it's raining geese, a farewell to peace And the rent's too high to pay Tell the Beverly Hills cop the sequels just won't stop We're on the slow boat to hell But the Devil's got AC - I'm serious, trust me! He's come so far since he fell And now for the sequel to life, folks It's the punchline, if life's the joke But will you laugh in the aftermath When it's all up in smoke? I doubt it. Now Barney, it seems you're everywhere When we get where we're going, will you be there? You know you're not the first purple dinosaur Dino was doing it years before On the Flintstones CHORUS: (So I said) Hey there, Barney, have you heard the news? The pink elephants are gone, but I still see you In a world where greediness reigns supreme Say hello to the American nightmare, and goodbye to the dream
