Mark Knopfler - Done With Bonaparte

“We’ve paid in hell since Moscow burned
As Cossacks tear us piece by piece
Our dead are strewn a hundred leagues
Though death would be a sweet release
And our grande armйe is dressed in rags
A frozen starving beggar band
Like rats we steal each other’s scraps
Fall to fighting hand to hand
Save my soul from [...]

Mark Knopfler - Nobody’s Got the Gun

“Nobody’s got the gun
Nobody’s trying to get the drop on anyone
Nobody’s standing out on main street
With the sun blazing down
Saying “There’s only room for one of us in this here town”
Nobody’s got the be the number one
Nobody’s got the gun
She may not understand
And she may want you eating from her [...]

Mark Knopfler - Rudiger / Рудигер

“Rudiger stands in the rain and snow
Collector of autographes
Names upon photographs
Faces of people who everyone knows
Rudiger lives in a place on his own
Briefcase and spectacles
Strange and respectable
He knows the meaning of being alone

Mark Knopfler - Je Suis Désolé

“We are leaving, leaving
Leaving on the tide
Come and stand beside me love
The water is so wide
You can hear the sailors calling
At the dawning of the day
Yesterday is falling, love
And je suis désolé, je suis désolé

Mark Knopfler - I’m the Fool

“I never thought I’d be the one
To be the raging bull
There’d always be a smoking gun
Who’d up and lose his cool
I never thought I’d have to say
I’m sorry, my love, because
I’m the fool I never
Fool I never thought I was

Mark Knopfler - Cannibals

“Well he’s daddy’s little boy he plays with his toys
He holds on to his daddy’s hand
His daddy says sonny you’re a big strong boy
You’re gonna be a big strong man
And they go play catch they go play ball
They go take a walk along the sand
Big strong daddy and a big [...]

Mark Knopfler - A Night in Summer Long Ago

“My lady may I have this dance
Forgive a knight who knows no shame
My lady may I have this dance
And lady may I have your name
You danced upon a soldier’s arm
And I felt the blade of love so keen
And when you smiled you did me harm
And I was drawn to you, [...]

Mark Knopfler - Don’t You Get It

“Don’t you get it I don’t want to buy your car
Don’t you get it I don’t want to buy it
Don’t you get it I don’t want to buy your car
Don’t you get it I don’t want to buy your car
Cause I gotta be a free man to run
I gotta be [...]

Mark Knopfler - Vic and Ray

“A dirty motor with London plates
Sitting in the gutter outside your silent gates
Vic and Ray, Vic and Ray
Vic and Ray, Vic and Ray
Come to daddy baby, what is it worth
Come to daddy, the scum of the crying earth
Vic and Ray, Vic and Ray
Vic and Ray, Vic and Ray

Mark Knopfler - No Can Do

“Skint in a material world
I did a warehouse stint for southsea girl
It was Hong Kong clothes for cash
Everybody got treated worse than trash
Punch the card in the company clock
Load the trolleys and the company trucks
And around and around the whole day through
And you couldn’t sit down when there was nothing [...]
