Rock Around the Clock
by Bill Haley

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, 'til 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, 'til 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, 'til 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, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then
Start a rockin' round the clock again
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

I was 7 years old in 1955 when this movie hit the neighborhood movie theater. I don't think there were any adults at the Saturday afternoon matinee, and it was pandemonium in the theater whenever the music would start on screen, Dancing on the seats, dancing in the aisles, kids having a hell of a time to the music we knew our parents hated. It was our first act of collective rebellion. This is why I hold my tongue whenever the subject of the awful stuff kids listen to today comes up. I have too good a memory to be such a hypocrite.

Here's a very interesting article
. The trend in Rock & Roll moved to raw sexuality and danger. Haley seemed to keep searching for a version of Rock & Roll that was acceptable to parents. It became much harder to sell them Haley’s follow-up records made up of recycled old standards and nursery rhymes turned into Rock & Roll.

@Adrian Cooper He was actively trying to appeal to an older audience by appearing in the very first Rock and Roll movie? What an odd strategy.

Adrian Cooper

Funny you should say that because Bill was actively trying to appeal to Adult audiences which is why his popularity declined after this and he never regained any success close to this ever again and died of a brain tumor, basically homeless in 1980. That's the part of the story we don't hear.
