Crocodile

The lyrics present the crocodile as a ‘modern day dinosaur’ in a fun and entertaining way for children. This piece is suitable for Primary school age children. It is available for Unison or SA and Piano. Crocodile has a jazzy, swing tune in D minor with syncopated rhythms.

The words are easy to learn and memorise and it has simple, optional actions and body percussion. It teaches harmonic blending, question and answer techniques, unison singing and explores the dynamic range of the voice.

“Crocodile, crocodile, 

Teeth so big and eyes so small you really have me scared,

Every time you look at me I lose a little hair!

Like a dinosaur, like a prehistoric dinosaur,

Teeth so big and eyes so small you really have me scared!

Crocodile, crocodile,

Tail so long and claws so sharp I feel a little fear,

When you smile that smile at me I do not want you near!

Like a dinosaur, like a prehistoric dinosaur,

Tail so long and claws so sharp I do not want you, do not want you,

Do not want you near…. Snap!!”   Sherelle Eyles
