"Walk of Life" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
Here comes Johnny singin' oldies, goldies
Be-bop-a-lua, baby, what I say
Here comes Johnny singin' I gotta woman
Down in the tunnel, tryin' to make it pay

[Chorus]
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turnin' on the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
And he do the walk, he do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny, gonna tell you a story
Hand me down my walkin' shoes
Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
To back beat the talkin' blues

[Chorus]

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
And he do the walk, he do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny singin' oldies, goldies
Be-bop-a-lua, baby, what I say
Here comes Johnny singin' I gotta woman
Down in the tunnel, tryin' to make it pay

[Chorus]

And after all the violence and double talk
There's just a song about the trouble and the strife
And he do the walk, he do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life
