Red Staggerwing [DVD]
by Mark Knopfler



If I was a staggerwing plane
A staggerwing painted red
I'd fly over you're house, baby
Buzz you I your bed

If I was a taperwing
A taperwing painted blue
I'd be barrell-rolling over you
You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a maserati
A red 300s
I'd ride around your house, baby
Give you a driving test

If I was a mustang racer
White with a stripe of blue
You could ride me, baby
Whenever you wanted to

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a fender guitar
A fender painted red
You could play me, darlin'
Until your finger bled

If I was one of them gibsons
Like a '58 or '9
You could plug me in
And play me any time

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now

If I was a motorcycle
A vincent red rapide
I'd ride around your house, baby
Get you up to speed

If I was short track racer
I'd be an indian
You could ride me around
And ride me round again

You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now
You're gonna need a rider anyhow
Let me be your rider now
