You Shook Me All Night Long

  • Originally performed by Australian heavy metal group AC/DC 
  • Included on the albums Back In Black and Who Made Who
  • The song was the band's first commercial success, reaching #35 on the top 40 charts in 1980, but more importantly it has since become a mainstay of the classic rock repertoire
  • The song lyrics presented below have been slightly changed from their original form so Oracle can perform the song with a female vocalist, thus the gender transposition (She / He, his / her etc).  (See disclaimer at bottom of page)

He was a fast machine,
He kept his motor clean,
He was the best damn man that I have ever seen,

He had a-sightless eyes,
Telling me no lie,
Knockin' me out with those American thighs,

Taking more than his share,
Had me fighting for air,
He told me to come, but I was already there,

'Cos the walls start shaking,
The earth was quaking,
My mind was achin',
And we were makin' it and you...

Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long.

Running double time on that seduction line,
He's one of a kind,
He's just mine all mine,

Well his claws,
Are just another cause,
Made a meal out of me, and come back for more,

Tried to cool me down,
To take another round,
Well I'm back in the ring to take another swing,

But the walls were shaking,
The earth was quaking,
My mind was aching,
And we were making it and you...

Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long,
Knocked me out, I said you
Shook me all night long,
Had me shaking and you,
Shook me all night long,
Had me shaking,
Well you shook me...

You really shook me and YOU!
Shook me all night long,
Aaaaahaaaahaaaah You...
Shook me all night long,
Yeah yeah you,
Shook me all night long,
You really got me and you,
Shook me all night long,
Yeah you shook me,
Yeah you shook me,
All night long.

In a few cases we have taken some liberties with the lyrics to make them more appropriate for tasteful gatherings. In other cases we have made gender transpositions to accommodate a female vocalist performing a traditionally male song.  Their use here is intended as an aid for people in selecting music for their wedding reception or private party, and may not be reproduced for any commercial, for-profit use.
