Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits (恐惧海峡)

You get a shiver in the dark

It's 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


Competition get other places


But horns they paly on 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 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 Creole


And 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
