Crocodile Rock   Elton John (#1 in 1972)

I remember when rock was young
Me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin' stones
Had an 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 hopin' and bopin' to the Crocodile Rock, well

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 mama those Friday nights

When Susie wore her dresses tight and

The Crocodile Rockin' was out of sight.

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
Burning up to the Crocodile Rock
Learning fast till the weeks went past
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well
