"And now, ladies and gentlemen, a rising star in rock and roll
Please welcome, all the way from London, England, Elton John!"
I remember when rock was young
Me and Susie had so much fun
Holdin' hands and skimmin’ stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own
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, Crocodile 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 mama, those Friday nights
When Susie wore her dresses tight
And the Crocodile Rockin' was out of sight
