I remember when rock was young
D/f#

Me and Suzie had so much fun
C
holding hands and skimming stones
C/c#

Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own
G
But the biggest kick I ever got
D/f#
Em
was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
C
While the other kids were Rocking Round the Clock
C/c#

we were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

Long nights crying by the record machine

burning up to the Crocodile Rock

Learning fast as the weeks went past
