Piano Man (Elton John)

Lyrics for: Piano Man 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
