Bill Haley – See You Later Alligator lyrics

Well I saw my baby walkin',
With another man today,
Well I saw my baby walkin'
With another man today.
When I asked her "What's the matter?"
This is what I heard her say.
Chorus:
See you later alligator,
After 'while, crocodile.
See you later alligator,
After 'while, crocodile.
Can't you see you're in my way now?
Don't you know you cramp my style?
When I thought of what she told me,
Nearly made me lose my head,
When I thought of what she told me,
Nearly made me lose my head.
But the next time that I saw her,
Reminded her of what she said.
Repeat Chorus
She said, "I'm sorry, pretty daddy,
You know my love is just for you. "
She said, "I'm sorry, pretty daddy,
You know my love is just for you,
Won't you say that you'll forgive me,
And say your love for me is true. "
I said, "Wait a minute, 'gator,
I know you mean't it just for play. "
I said, "Wait a minute, 'gator,
I know you mean't it just for play.
Don't you know you really hurt me,
And this is what I have to say. "
Repeat Chorus
See you later alligator, after 'while crocodile,
See you later alligator,
So long, that's all,
Goodbye
