"Rock Around the Clock" as written by James Myers and Max Freedman....
One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, rock
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, rock
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight

Put your glad rags on and join me, hon'
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

When the clock strikes two, three and four
If the band slows down we'll yell for more
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

When the chimes ring five, six and seven
We'll be right in seventh heaven
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too
I'll be goin' strong and so will you
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then
Start a rockin' round the clock again
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

    General CommentOMG! All of the user comments so far refer to the same reason that I visited this page: 'clock' rhymes with 'cock'. That is sooooo funny! It's good to know I'm not the only one on the planet who has these kind of thoughts. All these years I was worried I was a pervert, but it turns out I'm pretty 'normal' after all.

    General CommentTheres is a parody by the sex pistols where clock is replaced by a girl's squel and the rest of the lyrics are bizzare ramblings.

    General Comment"Rock and Roll" has long been a euphemism for sex.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    It's highly likely that this song is about a 24hr sex marathon.

    Sextastic.
