      Mark Knopfler - Stand Up Guy (Live) Música y Letra

      Brew the coffee in a bucket
      Double straight man and banjo
      If you don't got the snake oil
      Buster, you don't got a show
      Who puts the doh-re-me
      In our pockets
      Keeps the party going on?
      It's the man
      Who sells the potions
      I'm just one who plays the songs
      Now they generally buys
      The bigger size
      They usually rub it in
      I drank it once, it tasted
      Like grease and paraffin
      It's mostly alcohol, okay
      You can't deny it's strong
      We was going through the motions
      'til the doctor came along
      
      There stands the bottle
      Ladies and gentlemen
      All these bottles
      Don't have to tell you, friends
      These days miracles
      Don't come falling from the sky
      Raise your glasses to the doctor
      To a stand up guy
      
      When the monkeyshine is flying
      And he's promising the cure
      He says the french
      For your lovesick blues
      La maladie d'amour
      He gets the chumps all laughing
      But he gets a few to buy
      Here's to beefsteak
      When you're hungry
      And whiskey when you're dry
      Now the band'll blow their moolah
      Like sailors gone ashore
      Now we're going to west helena
      To gamble, drink and whore
      Let's you and me
      All make whoopee
      Here's mud in your eye
      Here's to all the gals you ever want
      And heaven when you die
      
      There stands the bottle
      Ladies and gentlemen
      All these bottles
      Don't have to tell you, friends
      These days miracles
      Don't come falling from the sky
      Raise your glasses to the doctor
      To a stand up guy
      
      There's a big cheese with a cigar
      Been sizing up the show
      He wants to get the doctor
      Pitching on the radio
      I will make a switch to guitar
      But the rules all still apply
      They want to trust somebody
      Yeah, they want a stand up guy
      
      There stands the bottle
      Here's to absent friends
      All these bottles
      Dead soldiers in the end
      These days miracles
      Don't come falling from the sky
      Raise your glasses to the doctor
      To a stand up guy
      To the doctor
      A stand up guy
