Billy Joel

Piano man (Video)

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.

La la la...

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 got us feeling alright.

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine,
he gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke
or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be.

He says, Bill, I believe this is killing me,
as a 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.

La la la...

Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy,
who's still in the Navy,
and probably will be for life.

And the waitress is practicing politics,
as a businessman slowly gets stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness,
but it's better than drinking alone.



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?

La la la...
