Mark Knopfler - Secondary Waltz

“The school Christmas party is coming
We ain’t doing rugby no more
McIntyre’s teaching us waltzing
Out on the gymnasium floor
Out on the gymnasium floor
McIntyre’s out of the army
You’ll be slippered if you get it wrong
McIntyre’s din booms loud in the gym
And we’ve only got a little short song
We’ve only got a little [...]

Mark Knopfler - We Can Get Wild

“We’re old enough for leaving home
the old joanna and the old trombone
It’s all going on
I’m growing my sideboards long
And you and me
can be who we want to be
Listen now, right here
It’s going to be a beautiful year

Mark Knopfler - Heart Full of Holes

“You can tell me your troubles
I’ll listen for free
My regulars trust me, it seems
You can come and see Uncle
to get through the week
leave your pledges with me to redeem
Some folk sell their bodies
for ten bob a go
Politicians go pawning their souls
Which doesn’t make me
look too bad, don’t you know
me, with [...]

Mark Knopfler - The Fizzy and the Still

“Sunday morning here we are,
The boy’s come home,
Not quite the movie star.
He’s been in Hollywood,
The boy’s come home,
The boy’s done good.
He says she asked to high a price,
Neglecting to declare
What sits between them there on ice,
Chilled, with the fizzy and the still.
He tried but didn’t make it there.

Mark Knopfler - Calling Elvis

“Calling Elvis - is anybody home
Calling Elvis - I’m here all alone
Did he leave the building
Or can he come to the phone
Calling Elvis - I’m here all alone
Well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
Let me leave my number - heartbreak hotel
Oh love me tender - baby [...]

Mark Knopfler - The Scaffolder’s Wife

“The scaffolder’s wife
driving out of the yard
with a face that’s as hard
as a scaffolder’s bar -
when she goes into town
she might take the top down
on the car.
The quick little steps
in the stiletto boots
and the hair with the roots.
She comes in as a rule
to get the nails done
and the tan for [...]

Mark Knopfler - True Love Will Never Fade

“True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
I wonder if there’s no forever
- no walking hand in hand
down a yellow brick road
to never-never land
These days I get to where I’m going
- make it there eventually
follow the trail [...]

Mark Knopfler - Skateaway

“I seen a girl on a one way corridor
Stealing down a wrong way street
For all the world like an urban toreador
She had wheels on on her feet
Well the cars do the usual dances
Same old cruise and the kerbside crawl
But the rollergirl she’s taking chances
They just love to see her take [...]

Mark Knopfler - Your Latest Trick / Твоя последняя уловка

“All the late night bargains have been struck
Between the satin beaus and their belles
And prehistoric garbage trucks
Have the city to themselves
Echoes roars dinosaurs
They’re all doing the monster mash
And most of the taxis and the whores
Are only taking calls for cash
