Meaning

The chorus encourages listeners to “rock around the clock” until broad daylight and to keep going when the clock strikes two, three, four, and five. The song celebrates the joy of staying up late into the night and partying until morning.

One, two, tree 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, join me, hon

We’ll have some fun while 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 or tree 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 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, ’till broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
