1. I remember when rock was young,
me and Susie had so much fun,
Holding hands and skimmin' stones,had a old gold Chevy and a place of my own.
2. 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 hoppin' and boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well.
Crock 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 mamma, those Friday nights
when Susie wore her dresses tight and
the Crockdile Rockin' was out of sight
3. 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 .
4. 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.
