You feel so lonely when it's in the afternoon
And you gotta face it all through the night
Don't it make you believe
That something's gonna have to happen soon
Oh, baby, all through the night

All through the night
Oh, baby, all through the night
All through the night
All through the night

Have you ever played with an all-night band
And got through it, baby, all through the night?
With a daytime of sin and a night time of hell
Everybody's gonna look for a bell to ring
All through the night

And they do it all through the night
Baby, all through the night

When the words pour down and the poetry comes
And the novel's written and the book is done
You say, "Oh, Lord, lover, baby
Give it to me all through the night"
And she says it

"Best friend Sally, she got sick
And I'm feeling mighty ill, myself"
It happens all the time
And all through the night

I went to Saint Vincent's
And I'm watching the ceiling fall down on her body
As she's lying round on the ground
Said, "Oh, babe got to celebrate all through the night"

Made me feel so sad
I cried all through the night
I said, "Oh, Jesus, all through the night"

If the sinner's in and the good man's gone
Then a woman can't come and help him home
Then what you're gonna do about it
When they go on all through the night

And they sing, 'Oh, baby, oh, baby, oh, baby"
All through the night
And he says, "Give it to me all through the night"

It ain't so much when a man's gotta cry
To get a little loving and some peace of mind
Said, "Hey, baby
Give it to me all through the night"

Some people wait for things that never come
And some people dream of things
They've never been done
They do it, oh, baby, all through the night

The city's funny and the country's wide
But I wanna know why they don't have a right
Don't they do it
Oh, baby, all through the night

Oh, mama, oh, mama, tell me about it
All through the night
I wanna have it all through the night

Christmas comes only once a year
Why can't anybody shed just one tear
For things that don't happen
All through the night?

Oh, mama, all through the night
Oh, baby, do it to me all through the night
Easy, easy, baby why don't you
Give it to me all through the night?
