  1. dire straits'in 1985 yılında çıkardığı "brothers in arms" isimli albümünün dördüncü şarkısı.saksafon sololarıyla beni benden alan şarkılardan biri..

    all the late night bargains have been struck
    between the satin beaus and their belles
    and prehistoric garbage trucks
    have the city to themselves
    echoes roars dinosaurs
    they're all doing the monster mash
    and most of the taxis and the whores
    are only taking calls for cash

    i don't know how it happened
    it all took place so quick
    but all i can do is hand it to you
    and your latest trick

    my door was standing open
    security was laid back and lax
    but it was only my heart got broken
    you must have had a pass key made out of wax
    you played robbery with insolence
    and i played the blues in twelve bars down lover's lane
    and you never did have the inteligence to use
    the twelve keys hanging off my chain

    i don't know how it happened
    it all took place so quick
    but all i can do is hand it to you
    and your latest trick

    now it's past last call for alcohol
    past recall has been here and gone
    the landlord finally paid us all
    the satin jazzmen have put away their horns
    and we're standing outside of this wonderland
    looking so bereaved and so bereft
    like a bowery bum when he finally understands
    the bottle's empty and there's nothing left

    i don't know how it happened
    it was faster than the eye could flick
    but not all i can do is hand it to you
    and your latest trick
