Jerry Lee Lewis - High School Confidential Lyrics




Open up, a-honey, it's your lover boy me that's a-knockin'
Why don't you listen to me, sugar? All the cats are at the high school rockin'
Honey, get your boppin' shoes
'Fore the jukebox blow the fuse
Everybody hoppin'
Everybody's boppin'
Boppin' at the high school hop

They're boppin' at the high school hop
Shakin' at the high school hop
Hoppin' at the high school rock
Rockin' at the high school hop
Well, everybody hoppin'
Everybody's boppin'
Boppin' at the high school hop

Come on, little baby, let's rock a little bit tonight
Woo, let's get with it sugar, let's shake it up tonight
Well, my heart's a-beatin' rhythm and my feet are movin' smooth and light

Well, boppin' at the high school hop
Boppin' at the high school hop
Shakin' at the high school hop
Movin' at the high school hop
Everybody boppin'
Everybody rockin'
Boppin' at the high school hop
Now let's go!

Well, now let me tell you something, baby, I'ma gonna give you some good news
Look a-here, sweet mama, let's burn off both our shoes
Well, my heart's a-beatin' rhythm and my soul is singin' the blues

Well, boppin' at the high school hop
Hoppin' at the high school hop
We're just a-jumpin' at the high school hop
We're rollin' at the high school hop
Well, everybody hoppin'
Everybody's boppin'
Boppin' at the high school hop
Now let's go!
Woo!

Well, boppin' at the high school hop
Hoppin' at the high school hop
Shakin' at the high school hop
We're just a-movin' and a-groovin' at the high school hop
Well, everybody boppin'
Everybody's hoppin'
Boppin' at the high school hop

  34. MrEightiesvintage

    Damn too good

  35. Guy Michel

    This is rock&roll. Sorry, but rap and disco are only slowed-down fallouts of this (at best); joy restrained. This isn't. Irresistible---always raises the hair on my arms, still gives me thrills and chills, no matter where I am I just can't help smilin and noddin, a-shakin and a-break---this is rock&roll.

    This my fav version of this classic. I remember hearing in the. Breathless 1982 movie!😎

  43. Hyped Apple

    No im not here from IT. Im here because this is my homework and to all you kids who willingly memorise this text because of a fandom or just pure enjoyment of this song, HOW

    Cosmonaut

    Because we dont like trash computer generated music.

  44. Frank Iglesias

    Flippy .

  45. wrotenwasp

    Man, when this song came on the radio, it made you want to "peel out" especially if there was a crowd watching.

  46. JonasOttaTV

    43 people weren't hopping at the high school hop

  47. ernie garcia

    Oh man, I loved dancing to this record.

  48. Dom Smit

    Damn I'm only 17 but I wish I lived back in the 50-60's just for the tunes

    toonbear81

    I did and saw him at his best oh being 80 has some compensations.

    Plymouth Fury

    Dom Smit same here :(

    wrotenwasp

    Hell dude, you might only be 17 but you've been bitten by the 50s bug. As long as you dig this music that's all that matters. I still listen to wax 45s from the late 50s , early 60s on an old vacuum tube console stereo but this high tech utube stuff does make it easy and IVe found soooo much good doo wop, rockabilly, pop rock that either I havent heard in ages or never heard before. Keep on rockin Dom and dont let your peers give you any shit about the fact that you dig oldies.

    walt7500

    What about the rest?! You would be bored to death.

  49. JonasOttaTV

    Why don't they play this at proms or dances

    Thomas Sanders

    JonasOttaTV that’s what I’m doing at our homecoming dance, hopefully anyway.... I can play this pretty good, singing... well... HELL, WHY NOT!

  53. Eddie Holdway

    This was one of my favorite songs growing up by Jerry Lee. I love this song, What I'd say, Break Up, Save The Last Dance For Me, Break My mind, and several others by the killer.

  73. Wyatt Wellinski

    they call this the devils music this is gods music

    White Lightning

    Let me tell you a story that is true. The conservative Christians call this the Devil's music and they say you go to Hell for it. I'm a Christian myself and I disagree with them. If that was true, my late father would be in Hell. But he is in Heaven. Don't let others judge your musical preferences. The only one who should judge your actions is God. And one guy claimed he went to Hell and heard Rock and Roll playing down there. But is doesn't play down there since the music isn't nowhere near the age of the Bible and its texts. How do I know, you might ask? Intense Biblical study. I mean the Hebrew Bible is around a thousand years old. When was Rock and Roll first started playing on the radio? The 1950s. See, no connection to Satan. Those same Christians saying getting tattooes listening to Rock and roll music, and a bunch of stuff we do daily will get us in Hell, but that is definitely false.

    Gabriel Cruz

    Jesus christ (no pun intended) the word "rock n roll" literally means having sex and rock n roll is all about drugs and sex and shit and you say it aint the devil's music? Are you saying that Christianity allows drugs and banging everywhere? especially with this song called "high school confidential"? Im no religious guy but honestly if you really call yourself Christian, get your facts straight and yes I hope your late father really is in Heaven because damn he's lucky

    White Lightning

    @cory mcblowy I have read the Bible for 14 years and does it have a reference to Rock and Roll? NO. Also the word Rock and Roll doesn't reference anything that is evil in the Bible. Pick up a Bible and read Matthew 5:3 - to 5:12. Matthew 5:11 says "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake." And that is what Jesus said to the Israelites at the time. So you are falsely calling what I said is evil. Read the scriptures of the Bible and nothing in Rock and Roll goes against it. Once again Rock and Roll isn't evil. It is God's music. learn your Bible properly. And I'm an expert in Christianity. Don't judge people for what they do, like listening to Rock and Roll. The only one who needs to judge you is Jesus.

    ROBERT SMITH

    Jerry lee is God.....

    @ROBERT SMITH - slow down, fella. He's great, but he's no God.

    On this day in 1965 {June 30th} Jerry Lee Lewis performed "High School Confidential" on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'...
    Seven years earlier on May 18th, 1958 it entered Billboard's Hot 100 at position #34; and on June 15th it peaked at #21 {for 1 week} and spent 11 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #5 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart and #9 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart...
    The week it entered the Top 100 at #34, it was tied at that position with two other songs, "Let The Bells Keep Ringing" by Paul Anka and "The Walk" by Jimmy McCracklin...
    'The Killer' will celebrate his 79th birthday in three months on September 29th, 2014...

  94. Agus Degoll

    El mejorrr

  95. exilemike

    I want to know who the three assholes were that disliked this song. Jerry Lee Lewis was a big part of the early days of rock and roll and without him and the other pioneers of that day we wouldn't have had all the good music we enjoy.

  96. Mc Lovin

    Screw off
