Mark Knopfler

Mark Knopfler - The Long Road

Laid here with the advertising sliding past my eyes like cartoons from other peoples lives,

I start to wonder what it takes to be a man.

Well I learned to drink & I learned to smoke & I learned to tell a dirty joke.

If that's all there is then there's no point for me.

*So please can I ask just why we're alive?

'Cos all that you do seems such a waste of time

& if you hang around too long you'll be a man.

Tell me 'bout it. Your car can get up to a hundred and ten -

you've nowhere to go but you'll go there again

& nothing ever makes no difference to a man.

So you stumble into town & hold your

stomach in.

Show them what you've got tho' they 've seen everything.

Yeah you're a beauty but they've seen your type before.

You've got no need but still you want,

so go and book that restaurant.

The wine will flow & then you'll just

fly away.

To a man

To a man

That's what I am.
