Song Description

If you've ever been down to the swamp and checked it out, you know it's like it's own world. Only the strong survive.

Story Behind the Song

I know some people who make their living in the swamp. I decided to write them a little tune they could sing while they work.

I like the overall tone of this song. Got most of the keys that make a good song. good story line. I wouldn't be surprised if Ive already heard this song on Swamp People.
I kept waiting for the lead--glad to hear it finally!

Lyrics

See Ya Later, Alligator

Deep in the heart of the dark bayou

Cold blooded killer hey what ya gonna do

You don't know that you've been had

Swamp people coming gonna hurt you bad



Chicken leg hanging on a cypress tree

Go ahead and take it and then ya gonna see

Hooked you good now what ya gonna do

Big headed gator, I'm coming for you


Twist that line

Show me that head

This raging Cajun's gonna

Shoot you dead


chorus

Thats no tree shaker

He's a real tree breaker

He'll crush you like a can

If you get too close

He'll swallow you whole

Keep a rifle in your hand


King of the swamp

You met your match

Hey what you gonna do

See ya later alligator

I'm a coming for you


Red eyes floating on a moonlit night

Hiding in the dark stayin' out of sight

Sneak up and grab ya with my old bare hands

Throw ya in the boat watch ya do that dance


Fearless hunters got a job to do

Kill Godzilla fore he kills you (choot em, choot em)

You can swim but you cannot hide

You'll be layin on the dock by supper time


chorus

bridge

Hey twelve foot monster

You bring a good price

I got some chicken

That smells pretty wicked

Gonna put you on ice


Show me that smile

You can hiss and you can blow

Workin all day

No time to waste

Gotta hundred tags to go
