Sheet music (pdf)

O crocodile night,
You've always been there
in the thin air
or on the dune.

O crocodile night
you're always waiting,
tonight you're mating
with the moon.

The song of the hamper,
the song of the screen,
the song of the dishes,
the song of the green,
the song of the street lights,
the song of the park,
the song of the lawn chair,
the song of the dark.
