Lyrics and Music by Bernie Taupin and Elton John


Intro: G/D C/G F#9-
       G | G | Em | Em | C | C | D | D

    G
I remember when rock was young,
       Bm
Me and Susie had so much fun
        C
Holding hands and skimming stones,
       D
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own.

        G
But the biggest kick I ever got,
            Bm
Was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock.
          C
While the other kids were rocking Round The Clock,
        D
We were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock, well.

Chorus:
   Em
     Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
               A7
     When your feet just can't keep still,
   D7                                    G
     I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will.
     E
     Oh, Lawdy mama those Friday nights,
          A7
     When Susie wore her dresses tight
        D7                                C
     And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight.

Instrumental: G | G | Em | Em | C | C | D | D

But the years went by and rock just died,
Susie 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 till the weeks went past,
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well.

Chorus:
     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 Susie wore her dresses tight
     And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight.

Instrumental: G | G | Em | Em | C | C | D | D

I remember when rock was young,
Me and Susie 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.

Chorus:
     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 Susie wore her dresses tight
     And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight.
