Always smile if you’re a crocodile
‘Cuz Jamaica kids have got a lot of style.
We can read and write
And we never fight
‘Cuz we know what’s wrong
And always choose to do what’s right.

Always smile if you’re a crocodile.
Yes, you’ll want to smile if you’re a crocodile.
You’ll be smart and have fun
‘Cuz the crocks are number one.
There’s a lot that can be done
If you’re a crocodile.

There are many kids you will see
Who are friends with you and me.
We learn how to live in the world
Where there’s pride and
Our voice can be heard.

Always smile if you’re a crocodile.
Everybody smiles when they’re a crocodile.
If you’re feeling down
And you want to frown
There is always someone there
To turn it all around.

Always smile if you’re a crocodile
‘Cuz Jamaica teachers go the extra mile.
Do your best
Make a friend
Pass the test
And in the end
You will know how great it is
To be a crocodile.
