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 shoulda heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

Lets 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 blowin' on a slide trombone
The little boy from drummer, zaph 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

Shifty Henry said to Bugs For heaven's sake
No one's looking now's the chance to make a break
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said Nix Nix
I wanna 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
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the jailhouse rock
Ooh yeah, let's rock
