It sounds like a crock but songwriter Bruce Baert thinks its fitting to write an Irwin tribute song to the tune of Johns classic song Crocodile Rock.
He says he tried to keep the song fun and avoided talking about the stingray that killed Irwin because he didnt want to be disrespectful to his family.
However, Baert admits hes still a little worried that some of the lyrics will make Irwins widow Terri and two children sad.
Still, he insist lines like Steve Irwin never knew him a better time and I guess he never will and Gettin stronger as the years went past/We really thought The Crocodile Hunter would last arent meant to offend.
Baert will find out if the Irwins agree when he gives them copies of the song at a Wiggles concert next month in Los Angeles.
