Lyrics:

(Musixmatch)

She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean

She was the best damn woman that I ever seen

She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies

Knocking me out with those American thighs

Taking more than her share, had me fighting for air

She told me to come, but I was already there

‘Cause the walls start 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

Working double time on the seduction line

She’s one of a kind, she’s just mine, all mine

Wanted no applause, it’s just another course

Made a meal outta me, and come back for more

Had to cool me down to take another round

Now I’m back in the ring to take another swing

That 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

And knocked me out, I said

You shook me all night long

You had me shaking and you shook me all night long

Yeah, you shook me

Well, you took me

You really took me and you shook me all night long

Ooh, 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
