Lyrics
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

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 he's 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 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

Now Paul is a real estate novellist
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 businessman slowly gets 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 a while

And the piano it sounds like a carnival
and the microphone smells like a beer
and they sit a bar and put bread in my jar
and say: Man what are you doing here

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
