You get a shiver in the dark

London town

When he gets up under the

Then a crowd of young boys

They’re fooling around in the corner

Dm
Drunk and dressed in
 C
their best brown baggies

About any trumpet playing band

And the Sultans

Yeah, the Sultans, they play Creole

Dm
And then the man

          C              Bb
He steps right up to
A
the microphone

Dm                C
And says at last

                    Bb             A       A7
Just as the time bell rings

F
“Goodnight, now it’s
 C
time to go home”

Bb
Then he makes it fast

                                Dm Bb-C
With one more thing

                                  Bb-C
“We are the Sultans –
Dm
We are the Sultans of Swing”
