Never Smile At A Crocodile

Today is World Animal Day,  and we're having a Blog Hop! Each blogger in the hop has chosen a different animal to include in a bento. I chose the crocodile, because I've had a certain song randomly popping in my head for weeks now, and I just happen to have a crocodile shaped play-doh cutter too :)


You know the song right? You might remember it from Disney's Peter Pan... but that's not the version in my head, I've been hearing the Paulette Sisters' version ♬♩Anyways...

I made a little preschool bento for Birdie. She has baby carrots with a smiling crocodile cupcake ring around one, 2 cheese stars (a nod to Peter Pan... second star to the right, and straight on till morning) atop grapes speared with a sword (Captain Hook's?) and a musical note, and 2 crocodile peanut butter sandwiches on honey wheat. And I found the perfect Lunchbox Love note!


I like the other side of the note too :)


Making this bento didn't get the song out of my head, but that's okay, I actually kind of like it. Want to sing along? Oh, come on! It's such a cute song...

Just click the Play button and follow the lyrics below :)


Never Smile At A Crocodile
by The Paulette Sisters
(the version from You've Got Mail)

♬ Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle and never smile at Mister Crocodile
You may very well be well bred
Lots of etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette
For instance:
Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle and never smile at Mister Crocodile ♫
There, wasn't that fun? Now,  it's time to hop along and visit the next animal bento, by Michelle of Creative Food...
