Mark Knopfler - My Claim To Fame

MY CLAIM TO FAME

(Mark Knopfler)

Well he's a big star now

but I've been a fan of his for years

the way he sings and plays guitar

still brings me to tears

I wouldn't want to be a big deal

I wouldn't want to be a celebrity

I spend my life building ships of steel

that's all there ever was for me

take a hammer to the sea belles

and shout my name

and I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame

he spends his life in the studio

jet planes and big black cars

plays records on the radio

in all of the clubs and in all of the bars

by day he didn't have a choice

you had to take a trade

you had no money and you had no voice

that's the life I made

take a hammer to the sea belles

and shout my name

and I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame

that's my claim to fame boys

that's my claim to fame

to sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame

well a song can live forever and a day

an old ship goes to the breakers yard

in a hundred years you're gonna hear him play

they won't remember me for working hard

now they've all gone away, all the boys and the girls

they yard is a grave where the river runs through

we used to build the ships for the whole wide world

now we couldn't do it if we wanted to

take a hammer to the sea belles

and shout my name

I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame

take a hammer to the sea belles

and shout my name

I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame

that's my claim to fame boys

that's my claim to fame

to sail the seas as free as a breeze

that's my claim to fame
