about

Added August 26/2020. First posting. Bare bones. I call it the "Croc got 'em mix". Added the quick BG so I wouldn't forget it. Omitted a couple of guitar tracks from this mix as well. Keeping it sparse for the lads. But I imagine I won't let it sit for too long.

lyrics

Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears
Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears

You mope around like you lost me
In your little game, you put me in play
Never asked you to want me
You break hearts - I’m breaking away

That’s enough of those silly love songs
Playing in my head all night
That’s enough of those burning questions
Running through my mind -

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You picked the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears
Oh baby - cry - you cry - crocodile tears - crocodile tears

Glad you got what you wanted
By taking the time to make up your mind
Your calculations were off, babe
The next one in line just left you behind

Well that’s enough of those silly love songs
Playing in my head all night
That’s enough of those burning questions
Running through my mind -

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You picked the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears
Oh baby - cry - you cry - crocodile tears
Don’t you cry - cry - crocodile tears

Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears
Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You played the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears

Well don’t you cry those crocodile tears
You played the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears

( Plenty more crocodile tears where those came from …)
