You get a shiver in the dark
It's raining in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything

A band is blowin' Dixie double four time
You feel alright when you hear that music ring
And now you step inside but you don't see too many faces

Comin' in out of the rain you hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
Oh, but the horns they blowin' that sound

Way on down south, way on down south London town
You check out Guitar George, he knows all the chords
Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't wanna make it cry or sing

Yes and an old guitar is all he can afford
When he gets up under the lights to play his thing
And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene

He's got a daytime job, he's doin' alright
He can play the honky tonk like anything
Savin' it up for Friday night

With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing
And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles

They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
It ain't what they call rock and roll
And the Sultans, yeah the Sultans play Creole

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
'Goodnight, now it's time to go home'

And he makes it fast with one more thing
We are sultans of swing
We are sultans of swing
