Lyrics:

Mr. Alligator, was swimmin’ in the swamp
Mr. Alligator says hello! Chomp Chomp

Mr. Alligator, he’s a reptile
Look at all those teeth in his great big smile

Mr Alligator he can really grow in size
10-15 feet long , over 1000 pounds!

Mr. Alligator, He was almost extinct?
C’ya later Alligator
Thanks for not eating me!
