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 li li 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 someplacei 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"
Oh la la la li li 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 the buisinessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they're sharing a drink
they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

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

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 awhile
And the piano 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?"
Oh La la la li li 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
