Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile
You may very well be well bred
Lots of etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette
For instance

Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile

    I used to think that it was an Australian song, and that the lyrics were like this:

    You can never smile at a crocodile,
    No, you can't be friendly with a crocodile,
    You should run away,
    There's no time to play,
    You must get away from that crocodile

    And another time, I heard that the last lyric c "You must get away from that crocodile", or this; "Or else you'll become a meal for the crocodile"
