Some other versions of "Rock Around the Clock"

Lyrics
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 clock tonight.

Put your glad rags on and join me hon',
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one.

We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock till broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, 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 till broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock,
Around the clock tonight.

When the chimes ring 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 till broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock,
Around the clock tonight.

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I'll be goin' strong and so will you.

We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock till broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock,
Around the clock tonight.

When the clock stikes twelve we'll cool off then,
Start rockin' 'round the clock again.

We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock till broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock,
Around the clock tonight.
