Twisted Sister – Jailhouse Rock lyrics

[Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller]

Warden threw a party in the county jail
Prison band plays, they began to wail
Band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
Should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

[Chorus:]

Let's rock
Everybody let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Dancin' to a jailhouse rock

Shifty Henry said, for the heaven's sake
No one lookin', now our chance to make a break
Bugs turned to Shifty, said nix nix
Gonna stick around, gonna get my kicks

[Repeat chorus]

Number Forty zero said to number Three
You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
Sure I'd be delighted with your company
Come on and do the jailhouse c*** with me

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo - left: Jay Jay, right: Eddie]

Sad sack was sittin' on a block of stone
Over in the floor weepin' all alone
Warden said, hey buddy, don'tcha be no square
Can't find a partner, fuck a wooden chair

[Repeat chorus]

Shifty Henry said, for the heaven's sake
No one lookin', now our chance to make a break
Bugs turned to Shifty, said nix nix
Gonna stick around, I wanna get my kicks

[Repeat chorus]

Dancin' to a jailhouse rock
Dancin' to a jailhouse rock
Dancin' to a jailhouse rock
Dancin' to a jailhouse rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Dancin' to a jailhouse rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Said, a-dancin' to a jailhouse rock
