Alligator Pie
Alligator pie, alligator pie
If I don't get some, I think I'm gonna die
Give away the green grass, give away the sky
But don't give away my alligator pie.

Alligator stew, alligator stew,
If I don't get some, I don't know what I'll do.
Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe,
But don't give away my alligator stew.

Alligator soup, alligator soup,
If I don't get some, I think I'm gonna droop.
Give away my hockey stick, give away my hoop,
But don't give away my alligator soup.

Crazy Crocodile
(Tune of "Alouette")
Crocodile, crazy crocodile
Crocodile, swimming in the swamp
Eating all that she can see
Eating all that she can see
She can see - she can see
Oh…

Crocodile, crazy crocodile
Crocodile, swimming in the swamp.

Crocodile Song
(Tune of "London Bridge")
Crocodiles eat fish and snakes… fish and snakes, fish and snakes
Crocodiles eat fish and snakes… and sometimes froggies.

Crocodiles will gobble frogs up… gobble frogs up, gobble frogs up
Crocodiles will gobble frogs up… poor, poor froggies.

Five Hungry Crocodiles
Five hungry crocodiles each made a wish.
Five hungry crocodiles wished for a fish.
One wants a purple fish – help him get his wish
Mmm…
(Count down until no crocodiles are left)

Five Hungry Crocodiles
Five hungry crocodiles each made a wish
Five hungry crocodiles wished for a fish
One wants a purple one.... help him get his wish 
(Count down until none are left)

Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys, swingin' in a tree
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, You can't catch me!
You can't catch me!
Along came Mr. Croc, quiet as can be.
And SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree!

Mr. Crocodile
(Tune of "Frere Jacques")
Mr. Crocodile, Mr. Crocodile
Don't you bite – don't you bite
I can run away from you - I can run away from you
Out of sight – out of sight
