Sleepy alligator in the noon day sun Lyin' by the river just like he usually done, oh no! Call for his whiskey and he can call for his tea Call all he want to, but he can't call for me, oh no!
Oh no! Well, I've been there before And I ain't gonna come around here any more
Creepy alligator coming all around the bend Shoutin' about the times when we was mutual friends I checked my memory and I, I checked it quick, yes, I will I checked it runnin' some old kind of trick, oh no!
Oh no! Well, I've been there before And I ain't gonna come around here any more No, I can't
Riding down the river in an old canoe A bunch of bugs and an old tennis shoe Out of the river all ugly and green Came the biggest old alligator that I've ever seen
Teeth big and pointy and his eyes were buggin' out Contracted the union, for the papers to route Screamin' and yellin', he was pickin' his chops He never runs he just stumbles and hops Just out of prison on six dollars bail Mumblin' bitches and waggin' his tail
