Crocodile Rock

By Elton John

Crocodile Rock

The Collection

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album don't shoot me i'm only the piano player

I remember when rock was young
Me & suzie had so much fun
Holding hands & skimming stones
Had an old gold chevy & a place of my own
But the biggest kick i ever got
Was doing a thing called the crocodile rock
While the other kids were rocking round the clock
We were hopping & bopping to the crocodile rock

Well crocodile rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can't keep still
I never knew me a better time & i guess i never will
Oh lawdy mama those friday nights
When suzie wore her dresses tight
And the crocodile rocking was out of sight

But the years went by & the rock just died
Suzie went & left us for some foreign guy
Long nights crying by the record machine
Dreaming of my chevy & my old blue jeans
But they'll never kill the thrills we've got
Burning up to the crocodile rock
Learning fast as the weeks went past
We really thought the crocodile rock would last
