Lyrics
Goin' to a party in the county jail
Prison band was there and they began to wail
Kid is shakin' and began to sing
You should've heard them knocked out jailbirds sing

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the jailhouse rock

Spider Murphy sittin' on a block of stone
Little Joey blowin' on a slide trombone
Come on, Silly Willy, don't you be no square
If you cannot find a partner, use a wooden chair

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

Shifty Henry said to Bugs,"For heaven's sake
No one's lookin', now's our chance to make a break"
Bugs turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix
Wanna stick around awhile and get my kicks"

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

Everybody in the whole cell block
Everybody in the whole cell block
Dancin' to the jailhouse rock
