No. 16 - Song - Charlie and Chorus

MIDI File

Charlie: Now children all, both large and small,
When walking by the Hoogly,
If you should ever chance to view
A tail just like a "Googlie"
'Twill only show that close below
There crawls a fearsome creature;
For a crocodile perhaps may smile,
But all the same he'll eat you.
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
Mind the crocodile don't eat you.
If you're walking by the river,
And you see the rushes quiver,
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
If the crocodile should meet you,
If he wants to sup
He'll eat you up
Unless you eat the crocodile.
Chorus: Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
Mind the crocodile don't eat you.
If you're walking by the river,
And you see the rushes quiver,
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
If the crocodile should meet you,
If he wants to sup
He'll eat you up
Unless you eat the crocodile.
   
Charlie: And grown-ups too, don't think that you
Can treat this matter lightly.
You'd best look out what you're about,
As you go flirting nightly,
Before you know how fast you go
The crocodile goes faster;
And in the "Star" that night you are
An "'orrible disaster."
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
Mind the crocodile don't eat you.
Girls, don't forget I've told you,
When you're strolling with a soldier,
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
If the crocodile should meet you,
You may get wed soon
But your honeymoon
Will be inside the crocodile.
Chorus: Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
Mind the crocodile don't eat you.
Girls, don't forget I've told you,
When you're strolling with a soldier,
Oh, be careful of the crocodile,
If the crocodile should meet you,
You may get wed soon
But your honeymoon
Will be inside the crocodile.
   
Charlie: Some day perhaps, you single chaps
Will soon get married, maybe,
Or later on you'll gaze upon
Your own delicious baby.
The troubles then of married men
Arise, one on another,
But the worst of all that can befall
Is the wife's proverbial mother.
Don't be careful of the crocodile,
Ask the crocodile to meet her.
He's extremely long and lusty,
And if she should cut up rusty,
Introduce her to the crocodile,
He will very likely eat her.
When he sees the jaw
Of the mother-in-law
It's hard luck on the crocodile.
Chorus: Don't be careful of the crocodile,

And if she should cut up rusty,
Introduce her to the crocodile,
He will very likely eat her.

Of the mother-in-law
It's hard luck on the crocodile.
