There was a lizard. . . and he was hungry! He thought that the crocodile would would be a good tucker.
Lizard wanted crocodile killed so he could eat him. He wanted bat to kill him.
Hey bat, he said, that crocodile reckons you smell awful. he dosen't want you coming to coboree tonight.
Ah well, said bat, if i'm to smelly i'll just go back to camp.
But bat really wanted to see coboree. He went back to camp and picked up his spear and woomera.

When the bat came to the coboree, everyone was singing away.
Old croc came out all decorated and painted up.
Build a fire to light up the place, said bat. I want croc to dance close to the place so I can see him better.
Bat moved back into the shadows and started to hook up his spear and woomera.
Croc was dancing away and shaking his shoulders.
Move closer to the fire, said bat, I still can't see you.
Suddenly bat threw his spear from the dark place.
It speared croc right through the heart and killed him. And that was the end of croc as you know.
