Mark Knopfler - Sucker Row

somebody's gotta crack

a whip around here

who's minding the store?

shake it up sell some beer

what's your

money maker for?

pay day

we're packin' ‘em in

six-gun annie

and buffalo jill

but who's to say

they'll be back again

for a refill?

honey, you know the drill

ain't no left turn

down sleepy time street

you gotta be fast

but you gotta stay loose

thinking

on your feet

slick as grass

through a goose

we gotta

rationalise

the payroll

is giving me chills

you and me's

getting organised

it's kill or be killed

honey, you know the drill

well they can all look down

on sucker row

but they all forget

the tallest trees

from acorns grow

though they ain't yet

i never look down

on a sucker stake

they all pay the bills

i never gave a sucker

an even break

and i never will

a beautiful vision

keeps coming to me

i see

a miracle mile

flying in

for free

service

with a smile

high rollers

fancy hotels

big time singers

topping the bill

you gotta have a feel

for the stuff that sells

call it a skill

honey, you know the drill

somebody's gotta crack

a whip around here

who's

minding the store?

shake it up

sell some beer

money walking

through the door

annie's arriving

at a dangerous age

don't you

go getting ill

get another woman

up in the cage

who ain't over the hill

honey, you know the drill
