Dire Straits - Walk of life
Tekst en muziek: Mark Knopfler
(1985)






Here comes Johnny, singing oldies, goldies
‘Be-bop-a-lula’, ‘Baby, what I say’
Here comes Johnny, singing ‘I gotta woman’
Down in the tunnel, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time in a day



He do the song about the sweet lovin’ woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life



Here comes Johnny and he’ll tell you the story
Hand me now my walkin’ shoes
Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat, the talkin’ blues
He got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time in a day



He do the song about the sweet lovin’ woman
He do the song about the knife
Then he do the walk, he do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life



Here comes Johnny, singing oldies, goldies
‘Be-bop-a-lula’, ‘Baby, what I say’
Here comes Johnny, singing ‘I gotta woman’
Down in the tunnel, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time in a day



And after all the violence and double talk
There’s just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, yeah, you do the walk of life
Mmm, you do the walk of life
