Verse 1.
She was a fast machine 
She kept my motor clean
She was the best damned woman I had ever seen
She had the sightless eyes telling me no lies
And knockin' me out whit those American tights

Takin' more than her share 
Had me fightin' for air
She told me to come but Iwas already there
Cause the walls started shakin'
The earth was shakin 
My mind was achin' 
And we were makin' it and....

Chorus :
You shook me all night long
Yeah
You shook me all night long
You knockin' me out and
You shook me all night long
You had me shakin' and
You shook me all night long

Verse 2.

She was one of a kind and she was mine all mine
Wanted no applause just another course
Made a meal out of me
And came back for more

I had to cool it down to take another round
Now I'm back in the ring to take nnother swing
Cause the walls started shakin'
The earth was quakin'
My mind was achin'
And we were makin' it and....
