Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley

Strophe) 

The warden threw a party in the county jail 

prison band was there and they began to wail 

band was zumpin´and the joint began to swing 

should´ve heard thosed kocked out jail birds sing 

 

Refrain) 

Lets Rock 

Lets Rock 

Everybody in the whole cell block 

Was a dancin´to the Jailhouse Rock

 

 

Strophe) 

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone 

Little Joe was blowin´on the slide trombone 

The drummer boy for Illinois went crash bomm bang 

The whole rhythm section was the purple gang 

 

Refrain) 

Lets Rock 

Lets Rock 

Everybody in the whole cell block 

Was a dancin´to the Jailhouse Rock

 

Strophe) 

Number forty seven said to Number Three 

You´re the cutest jailbird I ever did see 

I sure would be delighted with your yompany 

Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me 

 

Refrain) 

Lets Rock 

Lets Rock 

Everybody in the whole cell block 

Was a dancin´to the Jailhouse Rock

 

Strophe) 

The sag sack was a sittin´on a block of stone 

Way over in the corner weeping all alone 

The warden said: "Bey buddy don´t you be no square 

If you can´t tind a partner use a wooden chair" 

 

Refrain) 

Lets Rock 

Lets Rock 

Everybody in the whole cell block 

Was a dancin´to the Jailhouse Rock

 

Strophe) 

Shifty Henry said to Bugs For Heaven´s sakes 

No one´s lookin now´s our chance to make a break 

Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said Nix nix 

I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks 

 

Refrain) 

Lets Rock 

Lets Rock 

Everybody in the whole cell block 

Was a dancin´to the Jailhouse Rock
