Piano Man - Billy Joel

Strophe) 

It´s nine o´clock on a saturday 

the regular crowd shuffles in 

There´s an old man sitting next to me 

Making love to his tonic and gin 

 

He says, Son, can you play me a memory

I´m not really sure how it goes 

But it´s sad and it´s sweet and I knew it complete 

When I wore a younger man´s clothes 

 

Interlude) 

la la la di da da 

la la di di da da dum 

 

Refrain) 

Sing us a song, you´re the piano man 

Sing us a song tonight 

Well, we´re all in the mood for a melody 

And you´ve tot us all feeling alright 

 

Strophe) 

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine 

He gets me my drinks for free 

And he´s quick with a joke and he´ll light up your smoke 

But there´s some place that he´d rather be 

 

He says, Bill, I believe this is killing me 

As the smile ran away from his face 

Well I´m sure that I could be a movie star 

If I could get out of this place

 

Interlude) 

la la la di da da 

la la di di da da dum 

 

Strophe) 

Now Paul is a real estate novelist 

Who never hat time for a wife 

and he´s talking with Davy, who´s still in the Navy

 

And the waitress is pravticing politics 

As the businessman slowly gets stoned 

Yes, they´re sharing a drink they call loneliness 

But it´s better than drinking alone 

 

Refrain) 

Sing us a song, you´re the piano man 

Sing us a song tonight 

Well, we´re all in the mood for a melody 

And you´ve tot us all feeling alright 

 

Strophe) 

It´s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday 

And the manager gives me a smile 

´Cause he knows that it´s me they´ve been coming to see 

To forget about life for a while

 

And the piano, it sounds like a carnival 

And the microphone smells like a beer 

And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar 

And say, Man what are you doing here 

 

Interlude) 

la la la di da da 

la la di di da da dum 

 

Refrain) 

Sing us a song, you´re the piano man 

Sing us a song tonight 

Well, we´re all in the mood for a melody 

And you´ve tot us all feeling alright ......
