I remember when rock was young,    me and Susie had so much fun
 CD
Holding hands and skimmin' stones  had a old gold Chevy & a place of my own
 GBm
But the biggest kick I ever got    was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock
 CD
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

 verse 2
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
