Piano Man  Billy Joel

[C]  [G]  [Am]   [C]  [F]  [G]  [C]  [C]  [F]  [F]                  
Its [C]nine o’[G]clock on a s[Am]aturday [C]
The [F]regular cr[C]owd shuffl[D]es in    [G]
There’s an [C]old man[G]  sitting [Am]next to me [C]
Making l[F]ove to his [G]tonic and [C]gin    [C]

[C]   [G]   [Am]    [C]   [F]   [G]   [C]   [C]   [F]   [F]         
He says [C]son can you [G]play me a [Am]memory [C]
I’m n[F]ot really s[C]ure how it g[D]oes    [G]
But it’s s[C]ad and its s[G]weet and I k[Am]new it comple[C]te
when [F]I wore a [G]younger man’s [C]clothes  [C]

[Am]La da [C]da     de de[D7] Da  [D7]     [Am]
da [C]da     de de [D7]Da  [D7]   da [G]DA [G7]   [G(3]     [G7(3]
[C]Sing us a [G]song you’re the[Am] piano man[C]
[F]Sing us a [C]song ton[D]ight  [G]
Well we’re a[C]ll in the m[G]ood for a m[Am]elody  [C]
and [F]you’ve got us [G]feeling all [C]right [C]

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 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

La da da de de Da Da da da de de Da DA DE

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
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 practising politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
but its better than drinking alone



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?

La da da de de Da Da da da de de Da DA DE
