Alligator Boots Crocodile Smile
Copyright © 2014 Jim Ferrie Music

Golden words from a silver tongue says
Princess of the Nile
His stock in trade deceit and lies
From his alligator boots to his crocodile smile

A coyote wearin' silk'n'wool the
Duke of Charm and Style
An inch becomes a country mile
In his alligator boots and his crocodile smile

My darlin' won't you hear me out
And listen for a while
Don't be his bride, don't fall for him
And his alligator boots and his crocodile smile

My darlin' don't go marryin' him and
Please don't bear his child
I'll shoot him dead and bury him
In his alligator boots and his crocodile smile
