Scenes From An Italian Restaurant

Billy Joel

 FGm/CC7/FBbF
 A bottle of white, a bottle of red  perhaps a bottle of rose instead 
 CBbF/ABbC
 Get a table near the street in our old familiar place
 C11CC11Csus4C
 You and I, face to face, mm mm
 FGm/FC/FBb/FF
 A bottle of red, a bottle of white it all depends on your appetite
 GG/AG/BCC/DC/EFBb
 I'll meet you anytime you want in our Italian Restaurant

 Things are okay with  me these days  got a good job,  got a good office
 CFmaj7AmDsus4D
 Got a new wife, got a new life and the family's fine  
 GD/GDm/GCadd2/G
Oh, we lost touch long ago you lost weight I  did not know
 CFmaj7AmDsus4D
 You could ever look so nice after so much time 

 EbBbF
Do you remember those days hanging out at the village green
 EbBbF
 Engineer boots, leather jackets and tight blue jeans
 EbBbF
Woah you drop a dime in the box play the song about New Orleans
 EbBbCDG
 Cold beer, hot lights my sweet romantic teenage nights

 Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies
 DDC
And the king and the queen of the prom  
 GG7/BCCsus4CCsus4C
 Riding around with the car top down and the radio on    
 GDDCGCsus4CCsus4C
 Nobody looked any finer    or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner
 GFEE/F#E/G#E
 We never knew we could want more than that out of life   
 AmG/BCDG
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive

 G/FG/EG/D
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
 GG/FG/EG/D
 Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh

 GDDC
 Brenda and Eddy were still going steady in the summer of seventy five   
 GG7/BCCsus4CCsus4C
 When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July    
 GDDC
 Everyone said they were crazy   
 GCsus4CCsus4C
 Brenda you know that you're much too lazy
 GFEE/F#E/G#E
 Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life   
 AmG/BCDG
Oh, but there we were waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye

 G/FG/EG/D
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

 Csus4CCsus4C
Well, they  got an apartment with  deep pile carpet
 Dsus4 G
And a couple of paintings from Sears
 Csus4CCsus4C
 big waterbed that they  bought with the bread
 DGsus4GGsus4G
They had saved for a couple of years   
 Csus4CCsus4C
They  started to fight when the  money got tight
 DEmA7D11
And they just didn't count on the tears, woh oh, woh oh...yeah rock n roll

 Csus4C
Well, they lived for a while in a very nice style
 Dsus4DCG
But it's always the same in the end
 Csus4C
They got a divorce as a matter of course
 Dsus4CG
And they parted the closest of friends
 Csus4C
Then the king and the queen went back to the green
 Dsus4DEmA7D11
But you can never go back there again, oh oh, oh oh

 GDDC
 Brenda and Eddie had had it already by the summer of seventy five  
 GG7/B
From the high to the low to the end of the show
 CCsus4CCsus4C
For the rest of their lives   
 GDDC
They couldn't go back to the greasers  
 GCsus4CCCsus4
The best they could do was pickup their pieces
 GFEE/F#E/G#E
 We always knew they would both find a way to get by  
 AmG/BCD
 That's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie
 AmG/BCD
 Can't tell you more cause I told you already
 AmG/BCDG
And here we are waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye

 G/FG/ED
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
