Havin' a barbie by the river
With no one else around
A tropical honeymoon
Knocking a Four X down
She was standing in the water
Eating a pumpkin scone
When crunch! she was gone

They were doing the crocodile roll
The woman and the reptile
Doing the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

Down came her husband
With a gun and a carving knife
To slaughter every crocodile
For taking his darling wife

You can't go round eating Queens landers
You overgrown goannas
I'll turn you all into shoes
Crunch!

It was in the news
They were doin the crocodile roll
The husband and the reptile
Doin the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

Down came his bloodhound
With mangy curly hair
Picked up the scent
Away he went
Bum in the air
Then the dog got carried away
And ran out on a log
When church! no more dog

They were doing the crocodile roll
The canine and the reptile
Doing the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

Down came a wild pig
Rooting all about
The little swine
Drank the wine
And really pigged it out
Then the crocodile chased him round
And the little pig said "up yours!"
Crunch! into another crocs jaws

They were doing the crocodile roll
The porker and the reptile
Doing the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

There's no moral to the story
Just a brand new dance
Grab your partner by the neck
And swing your crocodile pants
Dip your toe in the water
Are you ready for romance?
Swirl your tail around the floor
C'mon take a chance

Now your doing the crocodile roll
Stirring up the mud
Doing the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

They were doing the crocodile roll
Stirring up the mud crabs
Doing the crocodile roll
In the middle of the river

Crunch!
