WHAT IT IS (Mark Knopfler) Dire Straits Also recorded by: Zoe McCulloch The drinking dens are spilling out Thereís staggering in the square Thereís lads and lasses falling about And a crackling in the air Down around the dungeon doors The shelters in the queues Everybodyís looking for Somebodyís arms to fall into And itís what it is Itís what it is now Thereís frost on the graves and the monuments But the taverns are warm in town People curse the government And shovel hot food down The lights are out in city hall The castle and the keep The moon shines down upon it all The legless and asleep And itís cold on a tollgate With the wagons creeping through Cold on a tollgate God knows what I could do with you And itís what it is Itís what it is now The garrison sleeps and the citadel With the ghosts and the ancient stones High on a parapet (just take the up out of this Line and substitute a for the , should be as shown) A scottish piper stands alone And high on the wind The highland drums begin to roll And something from the past just comes And stares into my soul And itís cold on a tollgate Where the caledonian blues Cold on a tollgate God knows what I could do with you And itís what it is Itís what it is now What it is Itís what it is now Thereís a chink of light Thereís a burning wick Thereís a lantern in the tower Wee willie winkie with a candlestick Still writing songs in the wee wee hours On charlotte street I take A walking stick from my hotel The ghost of dirty dick Is still in search of little nell And itís what it is Itís what it is now Oh itís what it is What it is now
