    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 (x5)
