Jailhouse Rock

The Warden Threw A Party In The County Jail

The Prison Band Was There And They Began To Wail

The Band Was Jumpin' And The Joint Began To Swing

You Should've Heard Those Knocked Out Jailbirds Sing

Let's Rock

Everybody Let's Rock

Everybody In The Whole Cell Block

Was Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

 

Spider Murphy Played The Tenor Saxophone

Little Joe Was Blowin' On The Slide Trombone

The Drummer Boy From Illinois Went Crash, Boom, Bang

The Whole Rhythm Section Was The Purple Gang

Let's Rock

Everybody Let's Rock

Everybody In The Whole Cell Block

Was Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

 

Number Forty-Seven Said To Number Three

You're The Cutest Jailbird I Ever Did See

I Sure Would Be Delighted With Your Company

Come On And Do The Jailhouse Rock With Me

Let's Rock

Everybody Let's Rock

Everybody In The Whole Cell Block

Was Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock.

 

Strum.

 

The Sad Sack Was A Sittin' On A Block Of Stone

Way Over In The Corner Weepin' All Alone

The Warden Said  Hey Buddy  Don't You Be No Square

If You Can't Find A Partner Use A Wooden Chair

Let's Rock

Everybody Let's Rock

Everybody In The Whole Cell Block

Was Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

 

Shifty Henry Said To Bugs, For Heaven's Sake,

No One's Lookin' Now's Our Chance To Make A Break

Bugsy Turned To Shifty And He Said  Nix Nix

I Wanna Stick Around A While And Get My Kicks

Let's Rock

Everybody Let's Rock

Everybody In The Whole Cell Block

Was Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock

Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock
