Sultans Of Swing

Dire Straits

Private Investigations: The Best of Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler

You get a shiver in the dark
It's raining in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie double four time
You feel alright when you hear that music ring

Well now, you step inside
but you don't see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
But the horns be blowing that sound
Way on downsouth way on downsouth london town

You check out guitar George he knows all the chords
Mind he's strictly rhythm
He doesn't want to make it cry or sing
And an old guitar is all he can afford
When he gets up under lights to play his thing

And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene
He's got a daytime job he's doing alright
He can play honky tonk like anything
Saving it up for friday night
With the sultans... with the sultans of swing

And a crowd of young boys
They're fooling around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies
And their platform soles
They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
It ain't what they call rock and roll
And the sultans... yea the sultans played creole... creole

Then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
'goodnight, now it's time to go home'
And he makes it fast with one more thing
'we are the sultans... we are the sultans of swing'
