"All Night Long (All Night)" is a hit single by American singer Lionel Richie from 1983. Taken from his second solo album, Can't Slow Down (1983), it combined Richie's soulful Commodores style with Caribbean influences. This new, more dance music, pop-inspired approach proved popular, as the single reached number one on three Billboard charts (pop, R&B and adult contemporary). In the UK, it peaked at number two on the singles chart.

Lyrics

[Da Da, ooooh]
Well, my friends, the time has come
(To) raise the roof and have some fun
Throw away the work to be done
Let the music play on [play on, play on, play on..

Everybody sing, everybody dance
Lose yourself in wild romance
We're going to Party, Karamu, Fiesta, forever
Come on and sing along
We're going to Party, Karamu, Fiesta, forever
Come on and sing along

All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], ooh, yeah (all night)

People dancing all in the street
See the rhythm all in their feet
Life is good, wild and sweet
Let the music play on [play on, play on, play on]

Feel it in your heart and feel it in your soul
Let the music take control
We're going to Party, Liming, Fiesta, forever
Come on and sing my song

All night long [all night], ooh [all night]
All night long [all night], yeay [all night]
All night long [all night], yeah [all night]
All night long [all night], aah (all night)

Yeah, once you get started you can't sit down
Come join the fun, it's a merry-go-round
Everyone's dancing their troubles away
Come join our party, See how we play

Tom bo li de say de moi ya, yeah, jambo jambo
Way to parti' o we goin', oh, jambali
Tom bo li de say de moi ya, yeah, jambo jambo

Oo-oo-oo-oh yes
We're going to have a party, yeah [ugh]

All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], all night [all night]
All night long [all night], ungh [all night]

Everyone you meet [all night]
They're jamming in the street [all night]
All night long [all night]
Yeah, I said, [all night]
Everyone you meet [all night]
They`re jamming in the street [all night]
All night long [all night]
Feel good, feel good [all night]
