​Jailhouse Rock

This song is by ZZ Top and appears on the album Fandango! (1975).

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
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 can't 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"
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix I
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
