Crocodile Rock

Elton John


I remember when rock was young; me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin’ stones had a old gold Chevy and a place of my own
But the biggest kick I ever got was doin’ a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rockin’ ‘round the clock
We were hoppin’ and boppin’ to the Crocodile Rock, well

Chorus
   Crocodile Rockin’ is something shockin’
   When your feet just can’t keep still
   I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
   Oh, lawdy mamma those Friday nights
   When Susie wore her dresses tight and
   The Crocodile Rockin’ was out of sight……………………..

Instrumental

But the years went by and rock just died, Susie went and left me for some foreign guy
Long nights cryin’ by the record machine dreamin’ of my Chevy and my old blue jeans
But they’ll never kill the thrills we’ve got burnin’ up to the Crocodile Rock
Learning fast till the weeks went past
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well

Repeat Chorus

I remember when rock was young; me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin’ stones had a old gold Chevy and a place of my own
But the biggest kick I ever got was doin’ a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rockin’ ‘round the clock
We were hoppin’ and boppin’ to the Crocodile Rock, well

Repeat Chorus
