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
