Standard (EADGBE)

Up in the mornin' and off to school

The teacher is teachin' the golden rule

American hist'ry and practical math

You're studyin' hard, hopin' to pass

Workin' your fingers right down to the bone

And the guy behind you won't leave you alone

Verse 2

Ring ring, goes the bell

The cook in the lunchroom'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

Bet the teacher don't know how mean she looks

Verse 3

Soon as 3:00 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 through the corner and round the bend

Right to the juke joint you go in

Verse 4

Drop the coin right into the slot

You gotta hear somethin' that's really hot

With the one you love you're makin' romance

All day long you've been wantin' to dance

Feelin' the music from head to toe

Round and round and round you go

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

(repeat verse 4)

Verse 5

Hail, hail, rock 'n' roll!

Deliver me from the days of old

Long live rock 'n' roll

The beat of the drums loud and bold

Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll

The feelin' is there, body and soul
