Lyrics

The Castle Croc
Music: Ron Hiller (RONNO)
Lyrics: Judy Millar


Spoken: Hey, everyone! Do you see that ring of water circling the castle? Yeh! Sure! Well, that’s called a moat. Anyone for a swim?

It’s a lovely day for a swim, a swim in the castle moat
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 , do the forward stroke
Stroke, stroke, stroke, we’re swimming in the sun
Stroke, stroke, stroke, we’re having so much fun
Now let’s all swim over by that rock
(alarmed voice)
Hey, that’s not a rock – that’s the Castle Croc!
It’s the castle crocodile
And he’s wearing a hungry smile
As if he hasn’t eaten for quite a while!

Chorus:
SWIM, SWIM, SWIM, SWIM – AS FAST AS YOU CAN GO
SWIM, SWIM, SWIM, SWIM – HE’LL HAVE US FOR LUNCH IF WE MOVE TOO SLOWLY
GO! GO! GO! GO! (WHEW, THAT WAS CLOSE!)

It’s a lovely day to float, to float in the castle moat
We’re frogs on a lily pad, we paddle it like a boat
Stroke, stroke, stroke, we’re paddlin’ in the sun
Paddle, paddle, paddle, we’re havin’ so much fun
Now let’s all paddle over by that dock
Hey, that’s not a dock – that’s the Castle Croc!
It’s the castle crocodile
And he’s wearing a hungry smile
As if he hasn’t eaten for quite a while!

Chorus:
PADDLE, PADDLE, PADDLE, – FAST AS YOU CAN GO
PADDLE, PADDLE, PADDLE, – OH, WE’LL ALL BE LUNCH IF WE MOVE TOO SLOWLY
GO! GO! GO! GO! (WHEW, THAT WAS CLOSE!)

It’s a lovely day for a swim, a swim in the castle moat
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 , do the backward stroke
Stroke, stroke, stroke, I’m not afraid today
Stroke, stroke, stroke, I think I’ve found a way
Yeh, let’s all swim over by that rock
CAUSE I BROUGHT LUNCH FOR THE CASTLE CROC!

NOW THE CASTLE CROCODILE
IS WEARING A HAPPY SMILE
HE HASN’T HAD PIZZA FOR QUITE A WHILE!

Castle Croc: Chomp! I’ve been hungry for pizza for a long, long, time. Thanks, guys!
