Mosquitos buzzin' round my head 
Spanish moss for my bed
Now i better seldom see dried land
For i'm an alligator man

I hunt the gators all night long 
I sell his hidin' then I'm gone
To see the belle from bayou shant
Who love the alligator man

When i bring my hides to town
All the people gather round
For they just want to shake the hand
Of an alligator man

This bayou country is my home
From this place i'll never roam
I'm the leader of the clan
Known as an alligator man

Some people search this world for fame 
Fightin' gators is my game
Seein' all the scars on my hand 
I'm an alligator man
[I'm an alligator man ...]

The mosquitos round my head 
Spanish moss for my bed
I better seldom see dried land
For I'm an alligator man
For I'm an alligator man
Yes I'm an alligator man
