ONE NIGHT WHEN LITTLE SUZY CRAWLED BETWEEN THE SHEETS

SHE HEARD A FUNNY NOISE JUST BEFORE SHE WENT TO SLEEP

SHE STUCK HER HEAD BENEATH THE BED AND MUCH TO HER SURPRISE

A GREAT BIG ALLIGATOR AND IT LOOKED HER IN THE EYES

 

SO SUZY CALLED HER MOM SHE SAID MOMMA COME HERE QUICK

THERE'S AN ALLIGATOR UNDER MY BED I THINK I'M GONNA BE SICK

HER MOTHER LOOK UP FROM HER BOOK AND ANSWERED PATIENTLY

WELL THAT'S VERY NICE NOW SUZY BUT I THINK IT'S TIME TO GO TO SLEEP 

chorus

GO TO SLEEP NOW SUZY YOU KNOW IT ISN'T TRUE

WHAT WOULD AN ALLIGATOR BE DOING UNDER YOU

ALLIGATOR'S LIVE IN SWAMPS THEY DON'T SLEEP UNDER BEDS

SO GO TO SLEEP NOW SUZY AND REST OUR LITTLE HEAD 

SO THAT GATOR LOOK AT SUZY AND THEN HE LICKED HIS TEETH

HE LOOKED AT HER AS IF SHE WERE A CHOCOLATE COVERED TREAT

HE STARTED CRAWLING TOWARD HER WITH THE SUZY EATING LOOK

THEN SHE WHACKED HIM ON THE HEAD WITH HER FAIRY TALE BOOK

 

NOW A WHACK UPON THE HEAD WILL MAKE A GATOR STOP

AND THEN UPON THE END OF HIS NOSE SHE GAVE ANOTHER WOP

SHE CALLED OUT TO HER FATHER, 'DAD QUICK HE'S STARTING TO COME OUT'

BUT HER FATHER WAS LESS PATIENT AND HE BEGAN TO SHOUT

chorus

SO SUZY GAVE THAT GATOR ANOTHER GREAT BIG WHACK

THEN THAT ALLIGATOR SAID 'HEM, MIGHT NOT REALLY NEED HER FOR A SNACK

THAT GIRL IS JUST A MOUTH FULL SHE'S ONLY EIGHT OR NINE

BUT I DO BELIEVE HER DISBELIEVING PARENTS WOULD TASTE JUST FINE'

 

SO THE GATOR TURNED AROUND AND HE SLITHERED DOWN THE STAIRS

HE SWALLOWED UP BOTH HER PARENTS THEY WERE SITTING IN THERE CHAIRS

SUZY HEARD A GREAT BIG GULP AND THEN SHE COULD HAVE SWORN

SHE HEARD THAT ALLIGATOR AND HE WAS SINGING THAT SONG

chorus

SO SUZY SAT UP IN HER BED AND CRIED 'OH HELP I'M ALL ALONE'

JUST THEN SHE HEARD A VOICE CRY OUT <knocking> IS ANYBODY HOME

IT WAS HER FAVORITE UNCLE THE ONE CALLED HANDSOME JOHN

WELL HE HEARD ALL THE GULPING AND WHACKING HE CAME TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON

 

SO SUZY TOLD HER STORY AND JOHN HE TOOK IT IN

THEN HE MARCH RIGHT UP TO THAT GATOR AND TICKLED HIM ON CHIN

THAT GATOR GAVE A HICCUP AND HE HICCUPPED AND HE COULDN'T STOP

AND WITH ANOTHER GREAT BIG HICCUP OUT HER PARENTS POPPED

(and they where still singing that song)

               chorus

NOW TO EACH AND EVERY STORY, THERE'S THAT MORAL AT THE END

THE PART THAT TELLS YOU HOW NOT TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES AGAIN

WELL I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS STORY AND AFTER THINKING IT ALL OUT

I THINK THE MORAL TO THE STORY IS TO BE CAREFUL WHENEVER YOU HEAR A GROWN UP SHOUT.

               chorus
