Sultans Of Swing

เนื้อเพลง

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

 

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 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'
