(bb) crocodile tears, that's what you cried
(bb) when i wanted to leave your side
And you (eb) said "hey baby...Look at me
(bb) don't you have no sympathy?"
Well (f) i should have known better
(eb) i could have been free
But i (bb) walked too close and you
(f) nearly swallowed me (bb) (bb) (bb) (bb)

They (bb) said you were low, they said you were mean

But i (bb) walked too close and you
(f) nearly swallowed me. (Bb) (bb) (bb) (bb)
