One World
Dire Straits Lyrics


Can't get no sleeves for my records
Can't get no laces for my shoes
Can't get no fancy notes
On my blue guitar

I can't get no antidote for blues
Oh yeah, blues

I can't find the reasons for your actions
I don't much like the reasoning you use
Somehow your motives are impure
Somehow I can't find the cure
Can't get no antidote for blues
Oh yeah, blues

They say it's mostly vanity
That writes the plays we act
They tell me that's what everybody knows
There's no such thing as sanity
And that's the sanest fact
That's the way the story goes
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Ooh

Can't get no remedy on my TV
It's nothing but the same old news
Well, they can't find a way to be
One world in harmony
Can't get no antidote for blues
Oh yeah, blues
Blues
Yeah, yeah
Blues
Alright

Lyrics

Can't get no sleeves for my records
Can't get no laces for my shoes
Can't get no fancy notes on my blue guitar
I can't get no antidote for blues, oh yeah, blues

I can't find the reasons for your actions
Or I don't much like the reasoning you use
Somehow your motives are impure or somehow I can't find the cure
Can't find no antidote for blues, oh yeah, blues

They say it's mostly vanity that writes the plays we act
They tell me that's what everybody knows
There's no such thing as sanity and that's the sanest fact
That's the way the story goes, oh yeah, aw yeah, ooh

Can't get remedy on my TV
It's nothing but the same old news
But they can't find a way to be one world in harmony
Can't get no antidote for blues, oh yeah, blues

Blues, oh yeah, blues

Daniel O.

Oh yea this is a burner

Alba Sangabriel

This song is super underrated

Mike Valenza

This is possibly my favorite Dire Straits song.

Fred Smith

Shame the rest of the album didn't benefit from such a good bass line, it's not always about lead guitar, a slightly funkier rift does not detract from a rock song.

Luciano Gomes de Mendonça

Because of the Bass player on this one .

Ryan Calhoun

Skateaway will be my number 1 forever, but this is a great song.

Aubrey Lord

Mine too!😎

KirKy Bally

yea...me too
