    Dire straits - sultans of swing (live very rare 1978)

    Artiste: Dire Straits
    Chanson: Sultans Of Swing

    You get a shiver in the dark
    It's been 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 all right when you hear that music ring

    You step inside but you don't see too many faces
    Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
    Too much competition too many other places
    But not too many horns can make 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 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 honky tonk just like anything
    Saving it up for Friday night
    With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing

    Amd 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 played Creole

    And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
    And says at last just as the time bell rings
    'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home'
    and he makes it fast with one more thing
    'We are the Sultans of Swing'
