      Lyrics for Dire Straits - "Sultans Of Swing"

      You get a shiver in the dark,
      It's a 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 the music ring
      Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces
      Coming in out of the rain they hear the jazz go down
      Competition in other places
      Uh but the horns they blowin' that sound
      Way on downsouth
      Way on downsouth
      London town
      Check out guitar george, he knows-all the chords
      Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make them cry or sing
      They said an old guitar is all, he can afford

      When he gets up under the 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 the honky tonk like anything
      Savin' it up, for Friday night
      With the Sultans
      We're the Sultans of Swing
      Then a crowd a young boys they're a foolin' 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 playin' band
      It ain't what they call rock and roll
      Then the Sultans
      Yeah the Sultans they play creole, creole

      And 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
