Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I remember when rock was young
Me and Suzy had so much fun

Left allemande and dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Oh! Lordy mama those Friday nights
Swing your girl and promenade tonight
And the crocodile rockin' was out of sight


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands round
Around the corner, dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade, boys run right
Bend the line, right & left thru, turn your girl
Pass the ocean, scoot back and then
Swing the corner girl and promenade
And the crocodile rockin' was out of sight


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
But the biggest kick I ever got
Was doing a thing called the crocodile rock

Left allemande and dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
But the years went by and rock just died
Swing your girl and promenade tonight
Suzy went and left me for some other guy

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.
