LYRICS

When I was shipwrecked and driven from the shore
And all I had to go around the country to explore,
Was my Right valarity, whack valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

And steering up up the other side I found the crocodile,
From the tip of his nose to the end of his tail he was ten thousand miles,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

The crocodile, you see, was not of the common race,
For I had to get up a very tall pine for to look into his face,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

I bore away from his head one day with every stitch of sail,
And going nine knots by the log in ten months reached his tail,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

The wind was blowing hard, and blowing from the south,
The tree broke down and I saw right in the crocodile’s mouth,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

The crocodile he set his mouth and thought he had his victim,
But I went down his throat you see, and that is how I tricked him,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

I roamed around his throat until I found his maw,
And there was bullocks’ head and horses laid up there by the score,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

This crocodile was getting old and surely had a hide,
It took me six months and forty two days to work a hole through his side,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.

 

Come all you gentlemen, listen to me, If you ever travel to the Nile
Oh, somewhere you will find the shell of this wonderful crocodile,
With a Right valarity, whack valarity, chook valarity dey.
