Jailhouse Rock
Recorded by Elvis Presley
written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

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
G7 F
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the Jailhouse Rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone

Little Joe was blowing on the slide trombone

The drummer boy from Illinois went crash boom bang
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang

Repeat #2

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

Repeat #2

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

Repeat #2

Shifty Henry said to Bugs for heaven's sake

No one's looking nows our chance to make a break

Bugs turned to Shifty and he said nix nix
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks

Repeat #2
