    The warden threw a party in the county jail
    The prison band was there and they began to wail
    The joint was jumpin' and the band began to swing
    You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
    Everybody on 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


    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"


    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"


    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"
