Music & Lyrics: "Up All Night" by Slaughter (Stick It to Ya 1990)



Up All Night
Slaughter


~~*~~


--And when morning comes--

Up all night, sleep all day!
Up all night, sleep all day!

When evening comes
I am alive
I love to prowl around in the streets
It's the moonlight
That controls my mind
Now I've got the power to speak!

Awake from dusk to dawn ...
Watchin' the city lights
Stars are shinin' down ...
They'll be shinin' down on you and I
And when morning comes ...
And I'll hold you till the morning light

Everybody sing it now!

Up all night
Sleep all day!
Up all night
Sleep all day!

That's right!

Slidin' down the boulevard
All alone
The neon signs are callin' your name
Find me in the corner
Havin' the time of my life
I think you'd wanna do the same

Awake from dusk to dawn ...
Watchin' the city lights
Stars are shinin' down ...
They'll be shining down on you and I
And when morning comes ...
And I'll hold you till the mornin' light

Everybody sing it now!

Up all night
Sleep all day!
Up all night
Sleep all day!

If we could just stay up
24 hours a day!




~~*~~
One of the greatest Big Hair songs of the 80s,
though it was released in 1990.
The video is pure camp,
but was totally cool back in the day.
This song is meaningful to me because
when I'm very down, it never fails to pick me up.
