Song lyrics[edit]

T.N.T. (1975)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Bon Scott

  • Ridin' down the highway, goin' to a show;
    Stop in all the by-ways, playin' rock 'n' roll.
    Gettin' robbed, gettin' stoned,
    Gettin' beat up, broken boned.
    Gettin' had, gettin' took;
    I tell you folks, it's harder than it looks.

    It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
    It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
    If you think it's easy doin' one night stands,
    Try playin' in a rock roll band.

  • 'Cause I'm T.N.T. I'm dynamite.
    (T.N.T.) but I'll win the fight.
    (T.N.T.) I'm a power load,
    (T.N.T.) watch me explode.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (1976)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Scott

  • Pick up the phone,
    I'm always home.
    Call me anytime.
    Just ring
    362436 oh.
    I lead a life of crime.
    Dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
  • Gonna make a jailbreak
    And I'm lookin' towards the sky.
    I'm gonna make a jailbreak,
    Oh, how I wish that I could fly.

    All in the name of liberty;
    All in the name of liberty.
    Got to be free.

Let There Be Rock (1977)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Scott

  • Businessman, when you make a deal,
    Do you know who you can trust?
    Do you sign your life away?
    Do you write your name in dust?
  • No one knew what they was gonna do
    But Tchaikovsky had the news.
    He said -
    "Let there be light", and there was light.
    "Let there be sound", and there was sound.
    "Let there be drums", and there was drums.
    "Let there be guitar", and there was guitar.
    "Let there be rock"
    And it came to pass
    That rock 'n' roll was born.
  • Wanna tell you a story
    'Bout a woman I know.
    When it comes to lovin',
    Oh she steals the show.
    She ain't exactly pretty,
    Ain't exactly small.
    Forty-two, thirty-nine, fifty-six,
    You could say she's got it all.

Powerage (1978)[edit]

  • Diamonds, and dust
    Poor man last, rich man first
    Lamborghinis, caviar
    Dry martini's, Shangri-La.
    I got a burnin' feeling
    Deep inside of me.
    It's yearnin',
    But I'm gonna set it free.
    • Sin City, written by Young, Young, and Scott.

Highway to Hell (1979)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Scott

  • Hey Satan,
    Payin' my dues.
    Playing in a rocking band.
    Hey momma,
    Just look at me.
    I'm on the way to the promised land.
    I'm on the highway to hell.
  • She's like a lethal brand, too much for any man.
    She gives me first degree, she really satisfies me.
    Love me till I'm legless, achin' and sore.
    Enough to stop a freight train,
    Or start the Third World War.
    You know I'm losin' sleep, but I'm in too deep.
    Like a body needs blood,
    No doubt about it, can't live without it.
  • Seems like a touch,
    A touch too much.
    Too much for my body, too much for my brain.
    This damn woman's gonna drive me insane.
    She got a touch<
    A touch too much.
  • Somewhere a clock strikes midnight
    And there's a full moon in the sky.
    You hear a dog bark in the distance;
    You hear someone's baby cry.

    A rat runs down the alley
    And a chill runs down your spine.
    Someone walks across your grave,
    And you wish the sun would shine.
    Cause no one's gonna warn you.
    And no one's gonna yell attack.
    And you don't feel the steel
    Till it's hanging out your back.

Back in Black (1980)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Brian Johnson

  • I'm rolling thunder,
    I'm pouring rain.
    I'm coming on like a hurricane.
    My lightning's flashing across the sky
    You're only young but you're gonna die.
    Won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives.
    Nobody putting up a fight.
    Take my bell, take you to hell.
    Satan get ya, Satan get you.
    Hells bells.
    Hells bells, coming for you.
    Hells bells, my temperature's high.
    Hells bells, you're gonna fry.
  • All you women who want a man of the street
    But you don't know which way you wanna turn,
    Just keep a coming and put your hand out to me,
    'Cause I'm the one who's gonna make you burn.
  • 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.
  • She was a fast machine,
    She kept her motor clean,
    She was the best damn woman that I ever seen.
    She had 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 started shaking,
    The earth was quaking,
    My mind was achin',
    And we were makin' it and you...

    Shook me all night long,
    Yeah you, shook me all night long.

For Those About to Rock We Salute You (1981)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Johnson

  • Stand up and be counted
    For what you are about to receive.
    We are the dealers;
    We'll give you everything you need.
    Hail hail to the good times
    'Cause rock has got the right of way.
    We ain't no legend, ain't no cause.
    We're just livin' for today.

    For those about to rock, we salute you.

  • Loose lips sink ships.
    So come aboard for a pleasure trip.
    It's high tide, so let's ride.
    The moon is rising and so am I.

    I'm gonna get it up;
    Never gonna let it up.
    Cruisin' on the seven seas,
    A pirate of my loving needs.
    I'll never go down, never go down.

Fly on the Wall (1985)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Johnson

  • You gotta see me leanin' on the bar
    I got my head in a whiskey jar.
    Feelin' good 'cos the city's alive,
    I'm gettin' ready to rock and jive.
    I get up and I slide across the floor.
    You wanna come and I'll meet you at the door.
    No one can stop us 'cos we're feelin' too right
    We're gonna steal our way around tonight.
    (Alright, alright)
  • Sink the pink, it's all the fashion.
    Drink the drink, it's old-fashioned.
    Gimme water, gimme wine.
    Gonna show you a good time.

Who Made Who (1986)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Johnson

  • Who made who, who made you?
    Who made who, ain't nobody told you?
    Who made who, who made you?
    If you made them and they made you,
    Who picked up the bill, and who made who?
    Who made who, who turned the screw?

Blow Up Your Video (1988)[edit]

Lyrics by Young, Young, and Johnson

  • Getting ready to rock,
    Getting ready to roll.
    I'm gonna turn up the heat,
    I'm gonna fire up the coal.
    I gotta keep that motor turning,
    I gotta keep that engine clean.
    I gotta keep those tires burning,
    I've got the best you've ever seen.

The Razors Edge (1990)[edit]

Lyrics by Young and Young

  • Come on, come on, love me for the money.
    Come on, come on, listen to the money talk.
