Cm7  Bb     F/A        Eb/G      Bb/F Eb
It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday,
           Bb/D        C       F F/G
The regular crowd shuffles in.
F/A        Bb     F/A      Eb/G       Bb/F
There’s an old man sitting next to me
       Eb          F7sus4    Bb
Making love to his tonic and gin.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb
              Bb | F/A | Eb/G | Bb/F

              Eb | F7sus4 F7sus4 F7
              Bb | Bb | Eb/Bb | Eb/Bb

Eb/Bb     Bb             F/A     Eb/G    Bb/F
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    Eb           Bb/D      C7    F
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         Bb           F/A
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      Eb/G          Bb/F
And I knew it complete
     Eb       F9sus4        Bb        F/A
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   Gm       Gm/F
   La, la, la,
           C/E   Eb Eb/Bb F/A
   Li, di, da.
 Gm     Gm/F
   La, la,
           C/E   C/E  F/D
   Li, di, da,
 C7/E  F
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: F | F/Eb | Bb/D | F7/C

Bb         F/A             Eb/G       Bb/F
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
Eb         Bb/D   C7    F
Sing us a song tonight.
            Bb          F/A       Eb/G   Bb/F
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    Eb            F9sus4    Bb
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb
              Bb | F/A | Eb/G | Bb/F
              Eb | F7sus4 F7sus4 F7

Cm7 Bb           F/A     Eb/G            Bb/F
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   Eb         Bb/D        C7   F F/G
He gets me my drinks for free.
F/A      Bb             F/A
And he’s quick with a joke
      Eb/G                 Bb/F
Or to light up your smoke,
            Eb              F9sus4      Bb
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb | Eb/Bb | Eb/Bb

Eb/Bb     Bb         F/A
He says, “Bill, I believe
        Eb/G         Bb/F
This is killing me,”
      Eb        Bb/D         C7    F
As a smile ran away from his face.
           Bb
“Well, I’m sure
       F/A          Eb/G     Bb/F
That I could be a movie star
   Eb          F9sus4       Bb
If I could get out of this place.”

 F/A   Gm       Gm/F
   Oh, la, la, la,
           C/E   Eb Eb/Bb F/A
   Li, di, da.
 Gm     Gm/F
   La, la,
           C/E   C/E  F/D
   Li, di, da,
 C7/E  F
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: F | F/Eb | Bb/D | F7/C

F7/C Bb       F/A         Eb/G      Bb/F
Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    Eb          Bb/D     C7    F
Who never had time for a wife.
         Bb             F/A
And he’s talking with Davy,
      Eb/G           Bb/F
Who’s still in the Navy
    Eb       F9sus4        Bb
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb
              Bb | F/A | Eb/G | Bb/F
              Eb | F7sus4 F7sus4 F7

              Bb | Bb | Eb/Bb | Eb/Bb

Eb/Bb     Bb        F/A        Eb/G     Bb/F
And the waitress is practicing politics
       Eb          Bb/D          C7   F
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             Bb          F/A
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           Eb/G         Bb/F
They call “Loneliness,”
         Eb          F9sus4     Bb
But it’s better than drinking alone.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb Bb F/A

Sing us a song, you’re the piano man.
Eb         Bb/D   C7    F

Cm7    Bb             F/A      Eb/G      Bb/F
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        Eb      Bb/D         C    F
And the manager gives me a smile,
          Bb              F/A
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             Eb/G          Bb/F
They’ve been coming to see
      Eb        F9sus4       Bb
To forget about life for a while.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb | Eb/Bb | Eb/Bb

Eb/Bb   Bb        F/A           Eb/G     Bb/F
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        Eb          Bb/D         C7    F
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         Bb           F/A
And they sit at the bar
        Eb/G         Bb/F
And put bread in my jar,
          Eb            F9sus4     Bb
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 F/A   Gm       Gm/F
   Oh, la, la, la,
           C/E   Eb Eb/Bb F/A
   Li, di, da.
 Gm     Gm/F
   La, la,
           C/E   C/E  F/D
   Li, di, da,
 C7/E  F
   Da, dum.

Sing us a song tonight.
            Bb          F/A       Eb/G   Bb/F
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody

And you’ve got us feeling alright.
