Piano Man (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (0)



It's nine o'clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me, makin' 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, di da da, la la, di di da da dum

Sing us a song, (you're the piano man, sing us a song tonight)
(Well, we're all in the mood for a melody, & you've got us all feelin' all right)

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 some place that he'd rather be
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
As his 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"

Oh, la la la, di da da, la la, di da da da dum

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

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessman slowly gets stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinkin' alone, and I just say…

Sing us a song, you're the piano man, sing us (a song tonight )
(Well we're all in the mood for a melody, & you got us all feeling alright)

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 comin' to see
To forget about their 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 doin' here?"

La la la, di da da, la la, di da da da dum

(Sing us a song you're the piano man, sing us a song tonight)
(Well we're all in the mood for a melody, & you got us all feeling alright)
