(verse I)
     C                                  Em
 I remember when rock was young, me and Susie had so much fun.

         F
 Holding hands and skimmin stones,

           G
 we had an old gold Chevy and a place of our own.

         C
 But the biggest kick I ever got, 

            Em
 was doin a thang called the crocodile rock.

           F
 While the other kids were rockin round the clock,

         G
 we were hoppin an boppin to the crocodile rock.


Chorus...
      Am
 Well crocodile rockin is something shockin,

          D7
 when your feet just can't keep still.

 G7                                   C
 I never knew me a better time, and I guess I never will.

 A
 Oh lawdy mama, those friday nights,

      D7
 when Susie wore her dresses tight,

 G7                                  C
 and the crocodile rockin was out of sight.

 C                   Em                    F                     G
 Laa, la, la la, la, laa.  La, la, la, la, laa.  La, la, la, la, laa.


(verse II)
         C
 But the years went by and the rock just died.

 Em
 Susie went and left us for a foreign guy.

 F
 Long nights crying by the record machine,

 G
 dreaming of my Chevy and my old blue jeans.

             C
 But they'll never kill the thrills we got,

         Em
 burning up to the crocodile rock.

          F
 Learning fast as the weeks went past,

           G
 we really thought the crocodile rock would last.
