Scenes From An Italian Restaurant (live 1977) Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (0)



A bottle of white, a bottle of red, perhaps a bottle of rose instead
We'll get a table near the street in our old familiar place
You and I, face to face, mmm hmm
A bottle of red, a bottle of white, it all depends upon your appetite
I'll meet you anytime you want in our Italian Restaurant.

Things are okay with me these days
I got a good job, I got a good office
I got a new wife, I got a new life and the family's fine
Oh we lost touch years ago; you lost weight I did not know
You could ever look so nice after so much time.

Do you remember those days hanging out at the village green?
Engineer boots, leather jackets and tight blue jeans
Oh you drop a dime in the box play the song about New Orleans
Cold beer, hot lights, my sweet romantic teenage nights, yeah

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh

Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies
And the king and the queen of the prom
Riding around with the car top down and the radio on.
Nobody looked any finer
Or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner
We never knew we could want more than that out of life
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive.
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh

Brenda and Eddy were still going steady in the summer of '75
When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July
Ah, everyone said they were crazy
"Brenda you know you're much too lazy
Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life."
Oh, but there we were wavin' Brenda and Eddie goodbye.
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

They got an apartment with deep pile carpet
And a couple of paintings from Sears
A big waterbed that they bought with the bread
They had saved for a couple of years
They started to fight when the money got tight
And they just didn't count on the tears.
Whoa ho, whoa ho
Rock yourself and roll! Yeah hey!

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Well they lived for a while in a very nice style
But it's always the same in the end
They got a divorce as a matter of course
And they parted the closest of friends
The king and the queen went back to the green
But you never go back there again
No oh, no oh

Brenda and Eddie had had it already by the summer of '75
From the high to the low
To the end of the show for the rest of their lives
They couldn't go back to the greasers
The best they could do was pick up the pieces
We always knew they would both find a way to get by
Oh and that's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie
Can't tell you more ‘cause I told you already
And here we are wavin' Brenda and Eddie goodbye.
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh

Yeah, yeah!

A bottle of red, ahh a bottle of white
Whatever kind of mood you're in tonight
I'll meet you anytime you want in our Italian Restaurant

Yeah yeah yeah yeah...
Oh yeah yeah...

(Thank you.)
