Crocodile Rock
"Crocodile Rock" is a song written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, it was first recorded in 1972. It is featured on the film Gnomeo & Juliet. It was also sung by Elton John and the Electric Mayhem in episode 214 of The Muppet Show and in his book Before You Leap, Kermit the Frog says his mother booked Elton John into the local theatre, the Bayou Bijou. While there she introduced John to the crocodile that inspired "Crocodile Rock." Nelly Furtado and John himself covered the song in 2010 redoing a few of the lyrics, i.e., "I remember when rock was young, Gnomeo and Juliet had so much fun.", instead of "Me and Susie had so much fun". It was recorded for the soundtrack.

Lyrics

Original version

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 la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la 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 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

La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la

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 la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la (repeat til end)

Gnomeo & Juliet version

I remember when rock was young
Gnomeo and Juliet had so much fun
Holding hands and skimming stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of their own
But the biggest kick they ever got
Was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rocking round the clock
They were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can't keep still
They never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Eh! Everybody is feeling right
Because we gonna dance all night
And the Crocodile Rocking just something out of sight

Dreaming of my buggy and my old blue jeans

Burning up to the Crocodile Rock
Learning fast as the weeks go past
Cause Gnomeo really thought the Crocodile Rock gonna last

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can't keep still
They never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Eh! Everybody is feeling right
