The Internet did not expect to have its heart broken like this. But that's exactly what a song going viral online is doing - giving social media users all the feels. British musician Tom Rosenthal recently took to Twitter to share the song that was written and composed by his three-year-old daughter, Fenn. Titled 'Dinosaurs in Love', this tear-jerker about doomed dinosaurs has taken social media by storm.
According to Mr Rosenthal, 33, Fenn came up with the lyrics all by herself and he helped her a little with the tune. While the song starts off innocently enough, describing dinosaurs at a party eating "people", "fruit and cucumber", it soon takes a tragic turn that struck a chord with listeners.

"I think she's got a really good sense of timing," Mr Rosenthal said of Fenn to CNN.
"She can just about count to 20 so she doesn't really get it if I say that half a million people have listened to the song," he added.Click for more trending news
