Schnappi rocks

"The hottest thing in German music right now is a 4-year-old girl's made-up song about a crocodile.

"Joy Gruttman's song, 'Snappy the Little Crocodile' ('Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil'), is the No. 1 song on the German charts. Her family posted the song on a Web site as a joke, but a radio station in Cologne, Germany, got hold of it and made it a hit.

"Gruttman is the youngest recording artist to make it to the German Top 10, let alone No. 1.

"'Snappy' beat out songs by Kylie Minogue and Linkin Park. The song is even appearing as remixes in German dance clubs."
