ALLIGATOR MAN

©1962 – music and words by John Black and Maria P. Black, ℗ 42nd Street Music Seattle
 

In the bayou town of Tikiwin

Famous for its alligator skin

There lived a man known around

For the way he knocked the gator’s down

They called him Charles, Charles the alligator man

Charles, Charles the alligator man

Snappin’ their tales as fast as he can

Charles, Charles the alligator man

This man Charles had a girl

Known by the handle of sweet sue pearl

She followed Charles all around

Hollarin in that bayou town

She hollared…

They called him Charles, Charles the alligator man

Charles, Charles the alligator man

Snappin’ their tales as fast as he can

Charles, Charles the alligator man

One day Charles fought the gator named jock

Fought him clear ‘round the clock

When the fight was over Charles lay dead

The gator had snapped off Charles head

They hollared

They called him Charles, Charles the alligator man

Charles, Charles the alligator man

Snappin’ their tales as fast as he can

Charles, Charles the alligator man

The moral of this story is well to note

Don’t ever try to get a gator’s coat

For you may wind up oh so dead

With a gator snappin’ off your head

They’ll hollar

They called him Charles, Charles the alligator man

Charles, Charles the alligator man

Snappin’ their tales as fast as he can

Charles, Charles the alligator man

Poor  poor Charles

Poor poor Charles boy

Poor poor Charles

Poor poor Charles boy
