Piano Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 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 someplace 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
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
well were all in the mood for a melody
and you've got us feeling all right
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
who never had time for a wife
and he's talking to Davy who's still in the Navy
and probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
as the buisnessmen slowly get stoned
yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
but its 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 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?
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
