the warden threw a party in the county jail
the prison band was there and they began to wail
the band was jumping and the joint began to swing
you should've heard those knocked-out jailbirds sing

let's rock, everybody, let's rock
everybody in the whole cell block
was dancing 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"

the sad sack was a sitting on a block of stone
way over in the corner, weeping 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 dancing to the jailhouse Rock
