"High Voltage" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
Well you ask me 'bout the clothes I wear
And you ask me why I grow my hair
And you ask me why I'm in a band
I dig doin' one night stands
And you want to see me do my thing
All you gotta do is plug me into high

I said high
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock 'n' roll

Well you ask me why I like to dance
And you ask me why I like to sing
And you ask me why I like to play
I got to get my kicks some way
And you ask me what I'm all about
Come and let me hear you shout high

I said high
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll

I said high, I said high
Waaaah
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock 'n' roll

Spotlight, put the lights out, happy hour
High voltage rock 'n' roll
High voltage rock 'n' roll
Wine, women and song
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock 'n' roll

    General Commentthis song is about the rock 'n' roll lifestyle (aka "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll"). this referenced by "wine women and song." the two verses emphasize living the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. the long hair, the wearing of clothes that no respectable man would wear and then of course the live show. and like everyone before me this is AC/DC's best albulm.

    and a little known fact about AC/DC: back when bon was the lead singer and the band was playin gigs down under, the band would bring "bail" money to there shows. this is becuase everytime bon said "shit" or "fuck" the police would charge him, so to avoid having to cancel the show "bail" money was brought to each gig and always given to the cops so the show could continue. the more bon swore the more money was paid for bail and coincidentally the more AC/DC's reputation grew.
