Up in the mornin and out to school
The teacher is teachin the golden rule
American history and practical math
You studyin hard and hopin to pass
Workin your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you wont leave you alone

Ring, ring goes the bell
The cook in the lunch rooms ready to sell
Youre lucky if you can find a seat
Youre fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom, open your books
Keep up the teacher dont know how mean she looks

Soon as three oclock rolls around
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat
Down the halls and into the street
Up to the corner and round the bend
Right to the juke joint, you go in

Drop the coin right into the slot
Youre gotta hear somethin thats really hot
With the one you love, youre makin romance
All day long you been wantin to dance,
Feeling the music from head to toe
Round and round and round we go

Hail, hail rock and roll
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock and roll
The beat of the drums, loud and bold
Rock, rock, rock and roll
The feelin is there, body and soul.
