Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
That she left me for him

Scene one standing
Crushed on landing
You may have walked out
But I'll swallow up my fate

Scene two sitting
Man in kitchen
Bit cold and lifeless like
The burger on my plate

But there's one emotion I'm afraid of
Hear him scratching gently to be fed
I can't stand it when he sits there smiling
I don't want him nesting in my head

Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
That she left me for him
So get away
Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
I'm not letting you in

Scene three lying (through his back teeth)
Speared and dying (bitten beneath)
I'll crawl the wall to hand there
Skinned and stuffed with drink

But there's one emotion I'm controlling
Green eyed monster with his jaws spread wide
(But he's your pet now, you can't run away and hide)
I can't stand it when he sits there crying
I don't want to throw myself inside

Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
That she left me for him
Get away
Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
I'm not letting you in
So get away, oh

Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
That she left me for him
So get away
Crocodile
No you won't make me jealous
I'm not letting you in

Oh get away
Get away, from me
Get away, hey hey
Get, get away
Get, get away from me you crocodile
Get, get, get, get, get, get away
Get, get away
Get, get away from
Get, get away from me
Get, get away
