Elton John Bernie Taupin
I remember when rock was young,
Me and Susie had so much fun,
Holdin' hands and skimmin’ stones,
Had an old gold Chevy and 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 hoppin’ and boppin’ 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 got,
Burnin' up to the Crocodile Rock,
Learnin' fast as the weeks went past,
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last.
