(Symbol ‘.’ Denotes A Pause)


The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prisonband was there and they began to wail
The joint was jumping and the place began to swing
You should have heard those knocked out jailbirds sing


Let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody on the whole cell block
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock


Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummerboy from Illinois went crash boom bang
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang


Let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody on the whole cell block
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock


Well number 47 said to number 3
You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
I sure'll be delighted with your company
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me


Let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody on the whole cell block
They were dancing to the jailhouse rock
Let's 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 on the whole cell block
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock


They were dancing to the jailhouse rock
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock
Everybody on the whole cell block
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock


They was dancing to, dancing to, dancing to, dancing to
Dancing to the jailhouse rock
Oh they was dancing to, dancing to, dancing to, dancing to
Dancing to the jailhouse rock
Everybody on the whole cell block
They was dancing to the jailhouse rock
