The sad sack was a sittin' 
on a block of stone 
way over in the corner 
weepin' all alone. 
The warden said,

If you can't find a partner 
use a wooden chair." 
Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.

Shifty Henry said to Bugs, 
"For Heaven's sake,

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.
