Jimmy Nail – Crocodile Shoes lyrics

Wine, beer and spirits all the time
Though I have you still she's always on my mind
The rain falls down I'm soaking through
I'm an old man inside a young man's suit
My crocodile shoes are crying too
For they know how much love I have for you

Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes

Wine, beer and spirits take me down
The lights are low and there's no one else around
The waitress sure looks pretty and that's a bad sign
I smile at her still yo're always on my mind

With your crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes

I've lost so much in a short time
Don't see my kids how I miss my wife
I let the world slip through my hands
And now I'm talking to the only friends I have

Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes
They're crying too
They're crying too
Crocodile shoes
Crocodile shoes
