Track Name: Crikey!
Way down yonder, I should say, "down under,"
Came a man with a passion as loud as a thunderclap
If you can imagine that
Spent his days facedown in the mud
Shoulders-deep where no sane man would ever go
That's his job, you know.

He taught us how to listen
Taught us how to love
Every living creature
From deep in the ground to the branches above
Turned fear to inspiration
And always with a smile
No I've never been to heaven, but hope it's full of crocodiles

He'd take chances in the name of advances
All the while with a drive that was truly outrageous
Positively contagious
Unafraid of a scratch or a bite
Planning trips to the deadliest places on earth
Sounds crazy, but for what it's worth

He taught us how to listen
Taught us how to love
Every living creature
From deep in the ground to the branches above
Turned fear to inspiration
And always with a smile
No I've never been to heaven, but hope it's full of crocodiles

Snakes, spiders, lizards, and crocs
Dive in the water in his shoes and socks
Freezing night or scorching day
Undone by a stingray...

He taught us how to listen
Taught us how to love
Every living creature
From deep in the ground to the branches above
Turned fear to inspiration
And always with a smile
No I've never been to heaven, but hope it's full of crocodiles
No I've never been to heaven, but hope it's full of crocodiles
No I've never been to heaven, but hope it's full of crocodiles

Hey,
Before I say what there is to say,
It's gonna be OK

He
Wasn't all that we made him to be,
But now he's what you need

Please take this letter as a sign
You wish you were better, but just give it time

She
Will make your mind all foggy and blurred
But you'll get over her

They saw your whole heart torn open in fear
And they're still here

Please take this letter as a sign
You wish you were better, but just give it time
To breathe...

Stop and smell the roses
And sip a little wine
Hold yourself the closest
And always speak your mind
Never go out searching, cuz trouble always finds a way
You're getting better, day by day...

You
Have all you need, it's wrapped up inside
But it's OK to cry

We
Have seen the edge, we've been to the brink
We're stronger than they think

Please take this letter as a sign
You wish you were better, but just give it time
To breathe, and seethe...

Stop and smell the roses
And sip a little wine
Hold yourself the closest
And always speak your mind
Never go out searching, cuz trouble always finds a way
You're getting better, day by day...

I
I'm doing fine, but I don't know why
I'm still afraid to cry

I love you, and goodbye

You wish you were better, but just give it time

They
Saw your whole heart torn open in fear

I wrote this letter as a sign
You need to get better, but just give it time
To breathe...

Stop and smell the roses
And sip a little wine
Hold yourself the closest
And always speak your mind
Never go out searching, cuz trouble always finds a way

You
Have all you need, it's wrapped up inside
But it's OK to cry

We
Have seen the edge, we've been to the brink
We're stronger than you think

I hope that you'll read this as your sign
You're gonna get better, but just give it time
To breathe, and please...

Stop and smell those roses
And you can try wine
Know that what's the closest
Isn't always worth your time
Call off all your searches, cuz trouble's gonna find you anyway
But you're still better, day by day...

I
I'm doing fine, but I don't know why
I'm still afraid to cry

I love you, and goodbye

Sincerely, you and I
