The Crocodile | Easy Piano Sheet Music and Lyrics

Here’s a funny song for easy piano. It’s best suited for kids that are in Level 2 or Level 3 lesson books. You can download the sheet music by clicking the link below. Then head back to the site to use the Mp3 to practice. I find that kids that are given an audio or video recording of the song to practice with, will play with far greater confidence and consistency when they perform it for their music teacher in the following lesson.

The Crocodile offers piano students a chance to play music in 3/4 meter. Most pieces in beginner piano books focus heavily on 4/4 meter. Far too little time is spent in 3/4, and students struggle when they are confronted with pieces in this meter. Supplementing their music books with pieces like The Crocodile will help them to perform more confidently in this meter.

Lyrics for Kids Song “The Crocodile”

Here are the complete lyrics for “The Crocodile.”

An Aussie went on a walkabout,
In search of a crocodile.

He said “I’d like one for a pet,
I’m sure he’d make me smile.”

Soon he found one, sixteen feet,
Resting on a dock.

But before he said, “Hello, good friend!”
The smile was on the croc!

Lyrics for ‘This Old Man’

This old man, he plays one
He plays knick knack on my thumb
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays two
He plays knick knack on my shoe
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays three
He plays knick knack on my knee
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays four
He plays knick knack on my door
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays five
Don’t play knick knack on that hive
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays six
He plays knick knack on my sticks
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays seven
He plays knick knack up in heaven
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays eight
He plays knick knack on my gate
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays nine
He plays knick knack on my vine
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

This old man, he plays ten
He plays knick knack all over again
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home.

Lyrics for Yellow Bird

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

Did you lady friend leave the nest again?
That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.
You’re more lucky than me.

On Top of Old Smoky Kids Song Lyrics

On top of old Smokey,
All covered with snow,
I lost my true lover,
For courtin’ so slow.

For courting’s a pleasure,
But parting is grief,
And the false hearted lover,
Is worse than a thief.

On Top of Spaghetti Kids Song Lyrics (Parody)

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese.
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor,
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden and under a bush,
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss.
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.
