Up in the mornin’ and off to school A
The teacher is teachin’ the golden rule
American hist’ry and practical math D
You’re studyin’ hard, hopin’ to pass A
Workin’ your fingers right down to the bone E
And the guy behind you won’t leave you alone A

Verse 2:
Ring ring, goes the bell A
The cook in the lunchroom’s ready to sell
You’re lucky if you can find a seat D
You’re fortunate if you have time to eat A
Back in the classroom, open your books E
Bet the teacher don’t know how mean she looks A

Verse 3:
Soon as 3:00 rolls around A
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat D
Down the halls and into the street A
Up through the corner and round the bend E
Right to the juke joint you go in A

Verse 4:
Drop the coin right into the slot A
You gotta hear somethin’ that’s really hot
With the one you love you’re makin’ romance D
All day long you’ve been wantin’ to dance A
Feelin’ the music from head to toe E
Round and round and round you go A

(repeat verse 4)

Verse 5:
Hail, hail, rock ‘n’ roll! A
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock ‘n’ roll D
The beat of the drums loud and bold A
Rock, rock, rock ‘n’ roll E
The feelin’ is there, body and soul A
