Crocodile Rock
Elton John/Bernie Taupin
I remember when rock was young
me and Susie had so much fun
holding hands and skimming stones,
had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own.
But the biggest kick I ever got
was doin' a thing called Crocodile Rock,
while the other kids were rocking round the clock
we were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock.

Well, Crocodile Rockin'
is something shocking
when your feet just can't keep still.
I never knew me a better time
and I guess I never will.
Oh, Lawdy Mama, those Friday nights
when Susie wore her dresses tight
and the Crocodile Rocking was-a out of sight.

La la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la-la la.

But the years went by and the rock just died,
Susie went and left us for some foreign guy.
Long nights crying by the record machine,
dreaming of my Chevy and my old blue jeans.
But they'll never kill the dreams we've got,
burning up to the Crocodile Rock,
learning fast as the weeks went past.
We really thought that Crocodile Rock would last.

Well, Crocodile Rockin'
is something shocking
when your feet just can't keep still.
I never knew me a better time
and I guess I never will.
Oh, Lawdy Mama, those Friday nights
when Susie wore her dresses tight
and the Crocodile Rocking was-a out of sight.

La la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la-la la.

La la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la-la la.

La la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la la,
la-la-la-la-la la.
