Lyrics[edit]

Back-up singers:
Hail, hail rock 'n' roll!
Bart and back-up singers:
Long live rock 'n' roll!
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll!
Hail, hail rock 'n' roll!
Buster Poindexter :
Up in the mornin' and after school,
The teacher is teachin' the golden rule.
American history, practical math.
Ya studyin' hard, ya hopin' to pass.
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone,
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone.
Bart:
Ring, ring goes the bell.
The cook in the lunch room is ready to sell.
Bleh!
You're lucky if you can find a seat.
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom, open your books.
Aw, man.
The teacher don't know how mean she looks.
Buster Poindexter :
Soon as three o'clock rolls around...
Bart:
I'm outta here, man, I'm goin' to town
Buster Poindexter :
You finally lay your burden down.
Bart:
I'm nobody's fool! I'm nobody's clown!
Buster Poindexter :
Close up your books, get out of your seat...
Bart:
This is a plan that can't be beat!
Buster Poindexter :
Down the halls and into the street!
Bart:
My dancin' shoes are on my feet!
Buster Poindexter :
Up to the corner and 'round the bend...
Bart:
Can't handle this just tell me when!
Buster Poindexter :
Right to the juke joint, you go in.
Bart:
I'm here, I said, it's me, Bartman!
Bart and Buster Poindexter :
Drop the coin right into the slot.
You've gotta hear somethin' that's really hot.
With the one you love, you're makin' romance.
All day long you been wantin' to dance...
Bart:
Woah, yeah!
Bart and Buster Poindexter :
I'm feeling the music from head to toe.
Round and round and round we go.
(saxophone solo, then Joe Walsh plays a solo)
Bart, Buster Poindexter and Back-up Singers:
Hail, hail rock 'n' roll!
Bart and Buster Poindexter :
Deliver me from the days of old!
Bart, Buster Poindexter and Back-up Singers:
Long live rock 'n' roll!
Bart and Buster Poindexter :
The beat of the drums, loud and bold!
Bart, Buster Poindexter and Back-up Singers:
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll!
Bart and Buster Poindexter :
The feelin' is there, body and soul!
Bart, Buster Poindexter and Back-up Singers:
Hail, hail rock 'n' roll!

Hail, hail rock 'n' roll!
