I said the joint was rocking
Going around and around
Yeah reeling and a-rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

Well it sounded so sweet
I had to take me a chance
Rose out of my seat
I just had to dance
Started moving my feet
Whoa - to clap my hands

I said the joint was rocking
Going around and around
Yeah reeling and a-rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

Yeah, at 12 o'clock
Yeah, the place was packed
Front doors was locked
Yeah, the place was packed
And when the police knocked
Those doors flew back
 
But they kept on rocking
Going around and around
Yeah reeling and a-rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

And they kept on rocking
Going around and around
Yeah reeling and a-rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

And the joint started rocking
Going around and around
Yeah reeling and a-rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down
