The King Of Swing

Demo version

Thomas Walsh - Neil Hannon - Thomas Walsh + Neil Hannon

He cuts a dazzled figure
He strikes a daring pose
The soul of manly vigour
As he pulls the trigger and he lets it go


He’s the king of swing, the king of swing The king of swing, the king of swing
He’s the only one to really do that thing He’s the only one to really do that thing
Slowing down and speeding up again
That’s why they call him the king of swing
That’s why they call him

He moves the cooker barrel
He […] the heavy air
And one way or another
He’s gonna get you get you get you out of there


He’s the king of swing, the king of swing The king of swing, the king of swing
He’s the only one to really do that thing He’s the only one to really do that thing
Slowing down and speeding up again
That’s why they call him the king of swing
That’s why they call him
