Crocodile Rock lyrics

“Crocodile Rock,” a timeless tune much like the creature it’s named after! Unveiled in 1972, this iconic track by Elton John propelled him to superstardom, marking his inaugural US chart-topper and reigning supreme for an impressive three weeks. Picture this: a lively piano melody, catchy rhythms, and Elton’s captivating vocals crafting a lively portrayal of a Saturday night filled with dancing until the early hours. It’s a dose of pure nostalgia, a melodic snapshot of a past era that continues to make toes tap and heads bob even in the present day.

Crocodile Rock lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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 Susie wore her dresses tight
And the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight

[Post-Chorus]
Laa, la-la-la-la-laa
La-la-la-la-laa
La-la-la-la-laa

[Verse 2]
But the years went by and the 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 as the weeks went past
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last

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

[Post-Chorus]
Laa, la-la-la-la-laa
La-la-la-la-laa
La-la-la-la-laa
