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 affordWhen he gets up under the lights to play his thingAnd 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, creoleAnd 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 thingWe are the Sultans

Walk of life

 Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be, bop, a, lua, baby, what I say
Here comes Johnny singing I gotta woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay

He got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time into the dayHe do the song about the sweet lovin? woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of lifeHere comes Johnny, gonna tell you the story
Hand me down my walkin? shoes
Here come Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat the talkin? bluesHe got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time into the dayHe do the song about the sweet lovin? woman
He do the song about the knife
Then he do the walk, do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of lifeHere comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be, bop, a, lula, baby, what I say
Here comes Johnny singing I gotta woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it payHe got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time into the dayAnd after all the violence and double talk
There’s just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, yeah, you do the walk of life
You do the walk of lifeParoliers : Mark KnopflerParoles de Walk of Life © Universal Music Publishing Group
