Elton John - Crocodile Rock Lyrics




I remember when rock was young
Me and Suzie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimming 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 hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
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 Suzie wore her dresses tight
And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight

But the years went by and the rock just died
Suzie went and left us for some foreign guy
Long nights crying by the record machine
Dreaming 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 as the weeks went past
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
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 Suzie wore her dresses tight
And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight

I remember when rock was young
Me and Suzie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimming 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 hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
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 Suzie wore her dresses tight
And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight

Elton John Crocodile Rock Comments
  1. Darkbrotherhood Dovahkiin

    Came here as soon as I heard about him being diagnosed with walking pneumonia. Causing him to lose his voice and burst into tears on stage. This song is my favorite Elton John song and is one of the songs that I listen to when I'm down and depressed. especially in this month. I am alone 24/7, my family never cared for me (even though I'm the only one of them who doesn't have some bad adiction), I have no friends, no girlfriend. I'm only 20 years old but have extremely crippling depression due to being alone my entire life that causes me to feel constantly suicifal. Please if you have kids people treat them like a person as they look up to you.

    Your soul is the key to everything. When you learn to listen to your soul’s purpose and then focus your mind to your desires, you can become more in control your life.

  49. Alex Bott

    And Nazis will once again ride on dinosaurs!!

  50. Alex Bott

    I think Crocs just sit in the water all-day being green and pretty much just eat whatever

  51. Alex Bott

    What about "I'm not trying to hook up with anyone at all ever for any reason and I haven't since I was 16" did you not fucking understand? I know you just set up all these fake things around me... It's so awkward... Why did you expect me to be like some perfect boyfriend while everyone made fun of me and abused me? I don't get it... Like wtf...

  52. Alex Bott

    Kkk man like you can't just interpret everything as you think I'm gay... It's getting old man. The only reason I had sex with someone from work like years ago the ONE fucking time was to desecrate holy land with homosexual sex. It has nothing to do with my sexuality ...

    Alex Bott

    It's not my fault you like thought I was like a prostitute and hooking up with guys at work and stuff ew lol I'm so sorry that you're really that fucking stupid. You dumbass people will believe fucking anything seriously wtf man. And you wonder why I hate everyone

  53. Alex Bott

    Your lab analysis doesn't really interpret anything useful....

  54. Alex Bott

    Ooooooawwpppp pedophile glasses, that's probably how I was interpreting this song right? Common keep your dream alive

  55. luis alberto apolinario muñoz

    I will always be with you, even in the worst moments. Every time that you need me, my arms will be open. »

  60. Benjamin Saul

    He would talk talk so much fun
    Taking shit and getting hit

    1234 lalalalalalalalalallalalalalalallalalalalala

    Dwight Dodd

    Only time in your life you will ever have gotten to vote for a NON polittician.Also an elected official that DELIVERS on his promises...however misguided they might be.............

    Benjamin Saul

    I still can’t vote for or against trump

    Benjamin Saul

  68. Pilote Man

    I remember when rock was young
    Me and Suzie had so much fun
    Holding hands and skimming 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 hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock
    Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
    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 Suzie wore her dresses tight
    And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight
    La lalalala la lalalala la lalalala la
    But the years went by and the rock just died
    Suzie went and left us for some foreign guy
    Long nights crying by the record machine
    Dreaming of…
