"All Night Long (All Night)" as written by Lionel B. Richie and Lionel B. Richie....
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

Everybody sing, everybody dance
Lose yourself in wild romance
We're going to party, karambo, fiesta, forever
Come on and sing along
We're going to party, karambo, 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
Feel it in your heart and feel it in your soul
Let the music take control
We're going to party, limin', fiesta, forever
Come on and sing along
We're going to party, limin', fiesta, forever
Come on and sing my song

All night long (all night), ooh (all night)
All night long (all night), yeah (all night)
All night long (all night), yeah (all night)
All night long (all night), yeah (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, jumbo jumbo
Way to parti' o we goin'
Oh, jambali
Tom bo li de say de moi ya
Yeah, jumbo jumbo!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, yes
We're gonna 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), whoa

We're going to party, karambo, fiesta, forever
Come on and sing along
We're going to party, karambo, fiesta, forever
Come on and sing my song

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), all night (all night)

All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (all night)
All night (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)
(All night)

    General CommentIt's hard to hate this song. I used to think it was amazing when I was a teen (which is only a few years ago, I was born in 89), but I have since radically changed my views on music, so all I see this song now is cheesy fun. I still like the bridge.

    General CommentI read this online and thought it was bizarre. Regarding, "Tam bo li de say de moi ya, Hey Jambo Jumbo." Lionel Richie called his friend at the United Nations to get some "African phrases." His friend was incredulous that Richie seemed to think there was one African language, when of course there are many, many languages and dialects spoken on the continent. So since he didn't have time to hire a translator, Richie made up his own gibberish "African" language phrases.

    This is one of those songs that makes me feel really nostalgic for elementary school, when it was always on the radio and MTV.
