Knopfler, Mark - What Have I Got To Do Lyrics




Now if I was to sing for you
A song you never heard
And give it to you my finest treasure
Would you look at what I bring to you
Turn without a word
Leave me at your gate
Keep me waiting at your pleasure

What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Maybe never
What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Forever

Well I'll beat out a lion heart tattoo
I'll bring you pipes and drums
I'll bring you books of burnished leather
I'll set to sea in ships for you
Brave a thousand runs
Ride a hurricane
Laugh at any stormy weather

What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Maybe never
What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Forever

You set no store by gems and gold
You scorn my weather chart
You are not concerned with men's advances
I want you more a hundred-fold
When you lift my heart
I'll burn no other flame
Bear no one else's lances

What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Maybe never
What have I
What have I got
What have I got to do
To win your love
Forever
To win your love
Forever

    It's amazing if you look on YouTube how many musicians Knopfler has worked with. His talent is beyond measure. Hard to believe this song was not good enough to put on Golden Heart.

  11. Loci Kühn

    quado ele vem faser chou no BRASil nos não podemos ficar sem esta guitarra

  12. Edith Moreira

    Mk é outro NÍVEL!!💖

    Maintenant si je devais chanter pour toi
    Une chanson que tu n'as jamais entendue
    Et te donnez mon plus beau trésor
    Voudrais-tu regarder ce que je t'apporte
    Tournez sans mot
    Laisse-moi à ta porte
    Laissez-moi attendre à votre plaisir


    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai à faire
    Pour gagner ton amour
    Peut-être jamais
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai à faire
    Pour gagner ton amour
    Pour toujours

    Eh bien, je vais battre un tatouage de cœur de lion
    Je t'apporterai des tuyaux et des tambours
    Je t'apporterai des livres de cuir bruni
    Je vais mettre à la mer dans des navires
    pour vous Brave mille courses
    Monter un ouragan Riez de tout temps orageux


    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai à faire
    Pour gagner ton amour
    Peut-être jamais
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai
    Qu'est-ce que j'ai à faire
    Pour gagner ton amour
    Pour toujours


    Vous ne mettez aucun magasin par des gemmes et de l'or
    Vous méprisez ma carte météo
    Vous n'êtes pas concerné par les avances des hommes
    Je te veux plus cent fois
    Quand tu soulèves mon cœur
    Je ne brûlerai pas d'autre flamme
    Ne portez pas les lances de quelqu'un d'autre

    Just too good Mark. Thanks so much for your music. When do you plan to make a trip to Asia?

  46. Kent Azaha

    I'm a Mark Knopfler hardcore listener. His song and lyric beyond ordinary people imagination.

    cdcchi

    For sure!

  47. Franck Mouly

    One day the music world will do justice to Mark Knopfler.
    wonder why this song never made it to the album.

    Marva Grossman

    +Franck Mouly I wonder that too. There at least four outtakes from "Golden Heart" that were only ever released as B-sides... and they're all great. Head and shoulders above most of the music that was made at the time. I have no idea why any of them didn't make the cut.

  48. gHSTS & gUITARS

    Really felling the frequency of these tunes!

  49. Amine Forever

    ..its a single from sailling to philadelphia..

    ATOM K

    No from golden heart

  50. Georgia Taylor

    where did you find this recording?   Is is on any album?  It is one of my favs by Mr. Knopfler and would love to have a copy of it.   Thanks.for posting this.

    Pierre-Yves Assing

    Wasn't that a bonus on Get Lucky (deluxe) ?

    João Malcher

    +Georgia Taylor it's an outtake from "Golden Heart".

    Paweł Michnowicz

    B-Sides bootleg

  51. Magdolna Bozsóki

    Még mindig az egyik legkedvesebb ! Csodás impulzív elöadás.

  56. Geardirector

    What would we do without you to provide some relief from the modern trash they pass off as music, Mark?

  62. Simona Battistelli

    Dear Poseidon you are a sweet boy..don't be afraid...no worth cry or being sad for anyone

  63. Simona Battistelli

    if you love Mark should know also Dire Straits, and their songs are about people withproblems, with the commitment exceeds everything...you have to have courage and confidence. Why your life is bad?.....you are a boy...it's possible?

  64. Simona Battistelli

    you are a fantastic boy with a golden heart....

  65. Diego Rodrigues Ribeiro da silva Rodrigues

  86. 8Amusic8

    Yay! I didn't even know this one yet! Just adore that Mark Knopfler has over 300 amazing songs to discover and then after the first feelings of amaze, actually get to listen to and get blown away by the beautifull lyrics, stunning guitarsounds and his ever dreamy, wise and gorgeous voice that lingers a life time. Isn't he everyone's HERO? Well, he's mine anyway...
