LEAD 1: (Accordi: Segui tutto il verso 1)

REm                    DO         SIb         LA
and then the man he steps right up to the microphone
REm          DO                SIb         LA    (LA7)

        SIb                  REm          SIb-DO
and he makes it fast with one more thing
we are the sultans
                      REm        REm-DO-SIb-DO
we are the sultans of swing
