Song Lyric Sunday 6th December

I’m running late today, so only posting the song and lyrics.
This is for Jim’s Song Lyric Challenge today

Jimmy Nail had a variety of hits in the 90s. This was one of them and from the TV programme of the same name. It’s not exactly an animal though, so I hope it’s acceptable.

Wine, beer and spirits all the time
Though I have you still she’s always on my mind
The rain falls down I’m soaking through
I’m an old man inside a young man’s suit
My crocodile shoes are crying too
For they know how much love I have for you

Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes

Wine, beer and spirits take me down
The lights are low and there’s no one else around
The waitress sure looks pretty and that’s a bad sign
I smile at her still you’re always on my mind

With your crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes

I’ve lost so much in a short time
Don’t see my kids how I miss my wife
I let the world slip through my hands
And now I’m talking to the only friends I have

Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
They’re crying too
They’re crying too
Crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Yes it’s acceptable, as you followed all of the rules. Crocodile Shoes was a 90s British 13-part television drama set across two series and was made by the BBC.
