Crocodile Rock - Elton John and Bernie Taupin

I remember when rock was young
Me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin' stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own

/ G - / Bm - / C - / D - /

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was doing 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 you 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
La, la la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la

/ Em - / A7 - / D7 - / G - / E - /
/ A7 - / D7 - C - / G - Em - C - D - /

But the years went by and rock just died
Susie went and left us for some foreign guy
Long nights cryin' by the record machine
Dreamin' 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

{Refrain, Verse 1, Verse 2, Refrain}

La, la la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la
{Repeat to fade}
