    Lyrics

    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 them 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

    Sad sack was 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 want to 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
    Dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
    Dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
