Elton John - Crocodile Rock

Crocodile Rock este un single de pe albumul Don’t Shoot Me, I am Only The Piano Player din 1972. A fost hit, dintre multele, de locul 1 în SUA. În Marea Britanie, s-a oprit la locul 5. De fapt în UK primul loc 1, a fost un duet cu Kiki Dee în 1976, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”. Primul loc 1 în UK că artist solo l-a avut abia în 1990 cu piesa “Sacrifice”.

Crocodile Rock este reminiscent de muzică anilor ’50-’60, conținând câte ceva din “Little Darlin””, “At The Hop” și “Oh Carol”.

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
