I am choosing the childrens song never smile at a crocodile for this week!

Composer
Frank Churchill
“Never Smile at a Crocodile” was a song written for the film Peter Pan, though it only appears in instrumental form in the final film as the theme for Tick-Tock the Crocodile. It is the most famous song ever deleted in Disney history; however, the instrumental version is played whenever Tick-Tock appears. The version with lyrics appears on Disney Sing Along Songs: Under the Sea, sung by Mark Miller and Richard Pursell.

This song was also performed in Episode 114 of The Muppet Show, where it was sung by Mary Louise, Muppet frogs, and a Muppet crocodile.

It was also sung in the TV special The Smithsonian Salutes Disney Music.

Lyrics
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 a while
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, I will place
To forget etiquette

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 a while
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, I will 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 a while
Don’t be rude, never mock, throw a kiss, not a rock
Clear the aisle and never smile at Mister Crocodile
