whos that girl in the piano bar
do you think she will ever be a star
sitting patiently and playing everything
everyone else wants to hear
everybody has a favourite song
joking, laughing as they singalong
others staring as they wander
what she's doing when she's off work at night
smoking, dreaming, never thinking
in a week or two
she may get the break
that's long overdue
Then will ? ?
maybe fame awaits in the wings
hey, there's the girl from the piano bar
who would think she'd ever get that far
smiling patiently and playing everything
that everyone else wants to hear
Its no different and it isn't hard to see
the game that you have to play
when you seek a world of fame
learning to compromise your art
for a top recording ...
Hey, who's that riding in that show-bus car
it's the girl from the piano bar
wearing fancy jewels and costumes
everything people expect her to wear !
da da da da da da da da di da ....
