Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*I remember when rock was young, me and Suzi had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin' stones, had an old gold Chevy

Allemande left and weave the ring
**But the biggest kick I ever got
Swing the lady, promenade on home
While the other kids were rockin' around the clock
We were hoppin' to the Crocodile Rock


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*But the years went by and the rock up and died
Suzi went and left me for some foreign guy
Long I'm cryin' by the record machine


**But they'll never kill the thrills we got


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now those heads (sides) square thru count them four hands
Dosado that corner one time around
Touch 1/4 then walk & dodge
Partner trade and do a right & left thru
Flutter wheel, rollin' round that old ring
Slide thru, swing the corner, promenade
While the other kids were rockin' around the clock
We were hoppin' to the Crocodile Rock


TAG

Swing the girl
Hoppin' to the Crocodile
Rockin' to the Crocodile Rock

Crocodile Rock
 
 

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

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

Lyrics by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
Recorded by Elton John.
