"Night Of The Long Knives" as written by and Brian Johnson Angus Mckinnon Young....
Who your leader? Who your man?
Who will help you fill your hand?
Who's your friend and who's your foe?
Who's your Judas? You don't know

Night of the long knives, night of the long knives
Night of the long knives, night of the long long knife

Where's that saviour?
Where's that light when you're prayin' for your life?
Who's that fightin' back to back?
Who's defendin' who's attack?

Night of the long knives, night of the long knives
Night of the long knives, night of the long long knife

Night of the long knives
Oh stab him in the back once

It?s the night of the long knives, night of the long knives
Night of the long knives
It?s the night of the long long knife
It?s the night of the, night of the
Night of the long long knife

    General CommentThe Night of the Long Knives was a turning point in the history of Hitler's Germany. Hitler had made it clear that he was the supreme ruler of Germany who had the right to be judge and jury, and had the power to decide whether people lived or died.

    General CommentFor AC/DC that's a pretty wierd thing to reference in a song. Interesting, though. But hey, the album For Those About To Rock was a reference to the salute of the Roman gladiators before going to battle, so... could be.

    General CommentNight of the Long Knives was when Hitler betrayed the leaders of the SA and killed them

    He then used the rest of the SA to create the SS

    He did this because the SA had a bad reputation and the Army didnt like them

    General CommentIts about a night with knives...many knives. ac/dc is a band who like to mess around with many knives and cut up trees and stuff. I don't know why you think Hitler is involved here?
