(Dire Straits) GO TO MIDI PAGE

you get a shiver in the dark
its 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
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 tone just 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
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
we are the sultans of swing
