Jailhouse Rock

In the style of

Elvis Presley

Lyrics

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
that knocked out
jailbird sing
let's rock

everybody let's rock
everybody in the
whole cell block
was dancing to
the jailhouse rock

spider murphy
played a
tenor saxophone
little joe was
blowin' on the
slide trombone

the drummer boy
from illinois went
crash boom bang
the whole
rhythm section
was a purple gang
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
let's rock

everybody let's rock
everybody in the
whole cell block
was dancing to
the jailhouse rock
rock rock 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 dancing to
the jailhouse rock

shifty henry said
now bugs for
heaven's sakes
no one's lookin'
now's the chance
to make a break

bugsy turned to
shifty and he said
nix nix
i wanna stick around
while i get my kicks
let's rock

everybody let's rock
everybody in the
whole cell block
was dancing to
the jailhouse rock

dancing to
the jailhouse rock
dancing to
the jailhouse rock
dancing to
the jailhouse rock
