Alligators in the Sewers

By Elton Camp Because live baby alligators are for sale This has laid the basis for a fanciful tale So many believe urban legends it’s a pity Even about alligators in New York City The story is that baby alligator will grow And then down the toilet people throw Such stories may seem plausible enough Without a closer look at such weird stuff No matter how many times it’s been told Alligators can’t survive where it’s so cold And sewer workers who’ve done it for years Never listed alligators as one of their fears The facts about this you may believe or not But not a single alligator has the sewers got But no matter how hard anyone does try, Some will still believe this incredible old lie
