Warden threw a party in the county jail
Prison band was there and they began to wail
Band starting jumpin', joint began to swing
Should've heard the knocked out jailbirds sing
Let's rock, everybody let's rock
Yes, everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Well, Spider Murphy played on the saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
Drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
Whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang
Let's rock, everybody let's rock
Yes, everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Well, number forty seven said to number three
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
Sure'd 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
Well, a sad sack was a sittin' on a block of stone
Over in the corner weepin' all alone
The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square
Can't find a partner use a wooden chair"
Let's rock, everybody let's rock
Well, everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Well, shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For goodness' sake
Warden's not lookin', man let's make a break"
Bugsy looked at Henry and he said, "Nix nix
Gotta stick around a while and get my kicks"
Let's rock, everybody let's rock
Well, everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Bopin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Rockin' to the Jailhouse Rock
