                                                      A          - G                                        D
    when I asked her "What's the matter?"        this is what I heard her say:

See you later, alligator; after while, crocodile,
                             G

Don’t you know you're in my way now?  
                                                  D
Can’t you see you've hurt my style?"

2. When I thought of what she told me, it nearly made me lose my head,
                                                  G                                                       E
    when I thought of what she told me, it nearly made me lose my head.

    When she asked me, “What’s the matter?”
                                                D
     reminded her of what she said.

                                                A          - G
    won't you say that you'll forgive me 
                                                  D
    and say your love for me is true?"

    I said, "Wait a minute, gator, I know you mean it just for play,
