Up in the morning and out to school The teacher is teachin' the golden rule American history and practical math Studyin' hard and hopin' to pass And workin' your fingers right down the bone The guy behind you won't leave you alone
Ring ring goes the bell The cook in the lunchroom ready to sell You're lucky if you can find a seat You're fortunate if you have time to eat Back in the classroom open your books The teacher don't know how mean she looks
Ha ha ha ha ha Are you ready?
Soon as three o'clock rolls around You finally lay your burden down Throw down your books get out of your seat And down the halls and into the street Up to the corner and 'round the bend Right to the juke joint you go in
Drop the coin right into the slot You gotta hear somethin' that's really hot With the one you love you're makin' romance And all day long you've been wantin' to dance Feelin' the music from head to toe And round and round and round you go
Hail hail rock and roll Deliver me from the days of old Long live rock and roll The beat of the drums loud and bold Rock rock rock and roll The feelin' is there, body and soul
