Crocodile is spelled in Uganda the same as everywhere but in the song it has to end with the letter O. And notice the O after goodbye. So here is how it goes..

One crocodilo went to see the elephant
Saying goodbye-O to her family.
And the croco and the croco and the crocodilo
In the river in the river in the river Nile-O.

.. and then two and three and four, etc. etc...
