Rock Around the Clock
by The Beatles



Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see.
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly. Blackbird fly.
Into the light of a dark, black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly.
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird fly. Blackbird fly.
Into the light of a dark, black night.

You were only waiting for this moment to arise. (3x)

{next song starts}

One, two, three o' clock, four o' clock, rock!
Five, six seven o' clock, eight o' clock, rock!
Nine, ten, eleven o' clock, twelve o' clock rock!
We're gonna rock, around, the lock tonight!


Put your glad rags on,
join me hun'!
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one!
We're gonna rock, around, the clock tonight!
We're gonna rock rock rock ti'll the broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock around the clock tonight!

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
if the band slows down, we'll yell for more!
We're gonna rock, around, the clock tonight!
We're gonna rock, rock, rock ti'll the broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock around the clock tonight!

When the clock strikes five, six and seven,
we'll be right in seventh heaven!
We're gonna rock, around, the clock tonight!
We're gonna rock, rock, rock ti'll the broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock around the clock tonight!

When it's eight nine ten, eleven too,
I'll be going strong and so will you!
We're gonna rok, around, the clock tonight!
We're gonna rock, rock, rock ti'll the braod daylight.
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock around the clock tonight!

(sax solo)

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then,
then start a' rocking round the clock again!
We're gonna rock, around, the clock tonight!
We're gonna rock, rock, rock ti'll the broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock around the clock tonight!
