The crocodile has every right
to fall in love or have a fight.
He likes his home. He wants to stay
and have a feed and sleep and play.
But better not get in his way
or YOU won’t see another day!
So when you travel our great land
respect this resident so grand
and DON’T go swimming where he hides
among the rivers, banks and tides.
It’s not HIS fault that tourists may
taste just like croccy’s take-away!
