  • We get up early and we work all day.
    We put our time in 'cause we like to stay up
    All night long. All night long.

    We keep on grinnin' 'til the weekend comes.
    Just a pinch between your cheek and gums.
    All night long. All night long.

    Start in the morning and get the job done.
    Take care of business and we have some fun.
    All night long. All night long.

    We like a long neck and a good old song.
    Turn it up and then we'll sing along. Sing along.
    Oh, we're stayin' up all night long.

    All night long.
    All night long.
    All night long.
    All night long. Writer/s: JOE WALSH

    Three other songs featured in the movie would also make the Top 100; "Stand By Me" by Mickey Gilley (#22), "Love The World Away" by Kenny Rogers (#14), and "Lookin' For Love" by Johnny Lee (#5)...
