Jailhouse Rock
The warden threw a party in the county jail
The priosn band was there 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 blowing on the slide tronbone
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 sure 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

The sad sack was a sittin' on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weeping 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 looking 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
Yeah, dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Well, dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
