ACDC Lyrics

BACK IN BLACK

Back in black I hit the sack

I've been too long I'm glad to be back

Yes, I'm let loose from the noose

That's kept me hanging about

I've been looking at the sky 'cause it's gettin' me high

Forget the hearse 'cause I never die

I got nine lives

Cat's eyes

Abusin' every one of them and running wild

CHORUS:

'Cause I'm back, yes, I'm back.

Well, I'm back, yes, I'm back

Well, I'm back, back. Well I'm back in black

Yes, I'm back in black

Back in the back of a Cadillac

Number one with a bullet, I'm a power pack

Yes, I'm in a bang with a gang

They've got to catch me if they want me to hang

Cause I'm back on the track and I'm beatin' the flack

Nobody's gonna get me on another rap

So look at me now. I'm just makin' my play

Don't try to push your luck, just get out of my way

CHORUS

Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back

Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back

Well, I'm back, back

Well I'm back in black

Yes I'm back in black

BAD BOY BOOGIE

On the day I was born the rain fell down

There was trouble brewing in my home town

It was the seventh day, I was the seventh son

And it scared the hell out of everyone

They said stop, I said go

They said fast, I said slow

They said yes, I said no

I do the bad boy boogie

Being a bad boy ain't that bad

I've had me more dirty women than most men ever had

All you women come along with me

And I'll show you how good a bad boy can be

I said right and they said left

I said east and they said west

I said up and they said down

I do the bad boy boogie all over town

I wanna tell you no story, tell you no lie

I was born to love till the day I die

I just line them up and I knock them down

And they all came running when the word got round


(Just keep a running)

I said up, they said down

They said straight, I said round

They said lost, I said found

I said free and they said bound

Bad boy boogie

 

 

CARRY ME HOME

The bartender's working on a late night shift

She's bonka blonds and Bon aims on a midnight drift

And the dance band's playing the same old slam

I'm drinking whiskey and you're sipping fine wine

I don't know what it is you're trying to prove

Well it should be you but it's me who can hardly move

And I've got my reputation lying on the line

Come on baby, be a good dog and help the blind

Won't you carry me home

(Like a truck, pick me up)

You ain't no lady but you've sure got taste in men

That head of yours has got you by time and time again

My arms and legs are aching and my head's about to blow

And your back's been breakin' and I'd hate to spoil the show

But I've just spent next weeks wages and I'm right out of coin

But you want more and it's half past four and they want to close the joint

But we can't afford a taxi, and it's too late for the bus

But I've been told by friends of mine you're someone I can trust

Carry me home

Won't you carry me home

Carry me home

(Don't let me lie here in all this beer)

You drank all your booze and half of mine

I'm bleary eyed and you're waiting for the sunshine (to come and kill me)

Just like the man who threw me on the floor

Don't matter, while I'm down here I might as well try and find the f***ing door

Excuse me, have you seen it? It's about this big

And have you got a plastic bag 'cause I'm gonna be sick

I'm dead drunk and heave'n hanging upside down

And you're getting up and leaving, you think I'm gonna drown

Carry me home

Won't you carry me home (can you help)

Carry me home

 

 

HAVE A DRINK ON ME

Whiskey, gin and brandy, with a glass I'm pretty handy

I'm trying to walk a straight line on sour mash and cheap wine

So join me for a drink boys. We're gonna make a big noise

So don't worry about tomorrow. Take it today

Forget about the cheque. We'll get hell to pay

Have a drink on me, Have a drink on me

Yeah

Have a drink on me, Have a drink on me

On me

Come on

Dizzy, drunk and fightin' on tequila white lightnin'

My glass is getting shorter on whiskey, ice and water

So come on and have a good time and get blinded out of your mind

Don't worry about tomorrow, take it today

Forget about the cheque, we'll get hell to pay

Have a drink on me. Have a drink on me

yeah

Have a drink on me. Have a drink on me

On me

Have a drink on me. Have a drink on me

Yeah

Have a drink on me

Come on

Gonna roll around, gonna double down

Gonna hit the ground.

Take another swig. Have another drink.

Gonna drink it dry

Gonna get me high. Come on all the boys

make a noise

Have a drink on me. Have a drink on me

Have a drink on me. Have a drink on me

 

 

ROCK & ROLL SINGER

My Daddy was workin' nine to five when my Momma was havin' me

By the time I was half alive I knew what I was gonna be

I left school and grew my hair. They didn't understand

They wanted me to be respected as a doctor or a lawyer man

(But I had other plans)

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll,

A rock 'n' roll star

Well I worked real hard and bought myself a rock 'n' roll guitar

I gotta be on top some day. I wanna be a star

I can see my name in lights and I can see the queue

I got the devil in my blood tellin' me what to do

(And I'm all ears)

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll,

a rock 'n' roll star

(I hear it pays well)

Well you can stick your nine to five livin' and your collar and your tie

And stick your moral standards 'cause it's all a dirty lie

You can stick your golden handshake and you can stick your silly rules

And all the other shit that they teach to kids in school

('cause I ain't no fool)

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer

I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll,

A rock 'n' roll star.

Yes I are!

 

 

ROCK YOUR HEART OUT

Got the devil in you, Got the devil in me

Play a dangerous tune, Come on and dance with thee

You got to throw your fists up, Shout your mouth out

Beat the walls down. Got to freak out

Rock your little

Rock your little

Rock your little heart out

Got everything you want. Got everything you need

Don't worry about the cost. Just sell your soul to me

You gotta bring the house down. Beat the drums loud

Bleed your life dry. Climb on lets fly

Rock your little

Rock your little

Rock your little heart out

Rock, rock your little heart out

You gotta put your foot down

Beat your chest hard

Blow your brains out

Feel her shout loud

You gotta rock your heart out

Rock your heart out

Rock your heart out

Rock your heart out

Rock, rock your little heart out

Rock, rock your little heart out

 

 

THE JACK

She gave me the Queen. She gave me the King

She was wheelin' and dealin' just doin' her thing

She was holdin' a pair but I had to try

Her Deuce was wild but my Ace was high

But how was I to know that she'd been dealt with before

Said she'd never had a Full House but I should have known

From the tattoo on her left leg and the garter on her right

She'd have the card to bring me down if she played it right

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

Poker face was her name. Poker face was her nature

Poker straight was her game. If she knew she could get you

She play'd 'em fast and she play'd 'em hard

She could close her eyes and feel every card

But how was I to know that she'd been shuffled before

Said she'd never had a Royal Flush but I should have known

That all the cards were comin' from the bottom of the pack

And if I'd known what she was dealin' out I'd have dealt it back

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack

She's got the Jack, And who knows what else?

She's got the Jack, yeah, yeah

She's got the Jack

 

 

YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG

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 Knockin' 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 -

CHORUS:

Shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me all night long

Working double time on the seduction line

She was one of a kind, she's just mine all mine

She wanted no applause, just another course

Made a meal out of me and came back for more

Had to cool me down, to take another round

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

'Cause the walls were shaking

The earth was quaking

My mind was aching

And we were making it and you -

CHORUS

Shook me all night long

You had me shakin' and you

Shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me

Well you took me

You reall took me and you

Shook me all night long

Ooooh you

Shook me all night long

Yeah, yeah, you

Shook me all night long
