  • Song Lyrics:
    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 won't leave you alone

    Ring, ring goes the bell
    The cook in the lunch room's ready to sell
    You're lucky if you can find a seat
    You're fortunate if you have time to eat
    Back in the classroom, open your books
    Keep up the teacher don't know how mean she looks

    Soon as three o'clock 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
    You're gotta hear somethin' that's really hot
    With the one you love, you're 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.
    (I B Emerson)
