Piano man lyrics
Piano man lyrics

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There’s an old man sitting next to me
Makin’ 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, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

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 feelin’ 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 the 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, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Piano man lyrics – Billy Joel

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he’s talkin’ with Davy, who’s still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, they’re sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it’s better than drinkin’ 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 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 comin’ 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 at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

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 got us feeling alright

Piano man lyrics – Billy Joel

Billy Joel delivered some holiday cheer to fans at Madison Square Garden this week.

The piano man performed a lively rendition of “White Christmas” with Alexa Ray Joel.

The 33-year-old daughter of Billy and model Christie Brinkley handled vocals for the holiday classic.

At the conclusion of the song, which included a rocking saxophone solo, Billy got up from his baby grand to hug his daughter.

“Thank you. Happy holidays everybody!” Alexa said before walking off.

The two also performed “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” together before “White Christmas.”

According to the setlist.FM, the holiday break came after six standards including show opener “I Go to Extremes,” “The Entertainer” and “The Longest Time.”

Billy Joel has been playing his hometown arena once a month since January 2014.

The characters from the 70-year-old’s extensive catalog will come to life in a new TV series based on his music.

Each episode of “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” will revolve around lyrics from Joel’s most popular songs like “Piano Man” and “Movin’ Out.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the tracks will be re-imagined and rearranged by Joel’s music team with his input.

The show has yet to be shopped to networks, and there’s no word yet about a cast or premiere date.
