I remember when rock was young,
me and Susie had so much fun,
Holding hands and skimmin' stones,
had a old gold Chevy & 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.
Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin',
when your feet just can't keep still.
I never had me a better time and I guess I never will.
Oh, Lawdy mamma, those Friday nights
when Susie wore her dresses tight and
D7 C G- Em - C - D
the Crocodile Rockin' was out of sight
But the years went by and rock just died,
Susie went & left me for some foreign guy,
long nights cryin' by the record machine ,
dreamin' of my Chevy & 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.
