​Crocodile Song

This song is by Janis Ian.

There was a lady name of Annie May
She fell in love at the zoo one day
That crocodile with the big white smile
Stole her very heart away

The courtship was brief but quite intense
Once he got under the barbed wire fence
On the honeymoon night, she turned on the light
And said "Darling, meaning no offense"

"Good God Almighty, those teeth are huge
"No way I'll do the hokey poky with you"
So they went to the dentist, who pulled all but two
Ain't it amazing what love can do
Ain't it amazing what love can do

They had a son and named him Rocky, of course
He fell for a gal on the police force
She was impressed with his bullet proof vest
So they let the romance run its course

They rented a room at the hotel Ritz
They sat on the edge of the bed and kissed
She took off her blues, he took off his shoes
It was then she almost called it quits

She said "Good God Almighty, those nails are huge
"No hanky panky or it's jail for you"
Do he pulled them all out
Just as fast as he could chew
Ain't it amazing what love can do
Ain't it amazing what love can do

I swear every word of my tale is true
You better be careful, it could happen to you
Nobody knows where true love grows
'Til they stand in someone else's shoes

Good God Almighty, it's a funny old world
Boys will be boys and girls'll be girls
The whole darn thing is just one big zoo
And it's amazing what love can do
It's amazing what love can do
It's amazing what love can do
