You Shook Me All Night Long Lyrics

Give Me A Big Beat

She was a fast machine
She kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman I had 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...

    You're both wrong, Johnson stated in a documentary that this song was written for a sex FANTASY. He said that he had often fantasized about the american women he saw on TV.

    I think these song lyrics are kind of self-explanatory. I mean, any song title with "You" and "All Night Long" in it, well you know what it's about.

    Like when they say "we were makin' it", well, believe me, honey, they aren't makin' cookies.

    The blind sightless eyes-bit is a woman riding and straddling him (hence the thighs line). The sightless eyes he speaks of are the woman's breast. She's riding him while looking at her breast. Its pretty self explanatory. Breast nipples can be construed as the eyes.

    If you think about it, it could be about an obese woman. American thighs- America has the largest obesity rate. The earth was quaking- her heavy weight caused the earth to shake.

    Couldn't it be taken as devil/possession interpretation? Guess it depends how you view the song

    "She told me to come but I was already there..."

    Obvious, isn´t it?

    You see, I always assumed this was a song about an extremely fine car.
    "She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies." -If this song is about a real woman, it doesn't make any sense, unless she was blind or lacking sight as that is what sightless means. I took it as he was talking about the headlights, which often times are characterized as the "eyes" of a car and they can't see and a car can't tell any lies.

    I've heard an interview with Brian where he says that the course was actually about him having diarehea, and in the beginning he's singing about a car.

    All AC/DC songs are about sex, drugs and rock n' roll. plain and simple

    (with a few exceptions, like Hells Bells)

    This song is simple, it is about low down and dirty sex.
