Fm7  Eb     Bb/D       G#/C      Eb/Bb G#
It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday,
           Eb/G        F       Bb Bb/C
The regular crowd shuffles in.
Bb/D       Eb     Bb/D     G#/C       Eb/Bb
There’s an old man sitting next to me
       G#          Bb7sus4   Eb
Making love to his tonic and gin.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb
              Eb | Bb/D | G#/C | Eb/Bb

              G# | Bb7sus4 Bb7sus4 Bb7
              Eb | Eb | G#/Eb | G#/Eb

G#/Eb     Eb             Bb/D    G#/C    Eb/Bb
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    G#           Eb/G      F7    Bb
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         Eb           Bb/D
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      G#/C          Eb/Bb
And I knew it complete
     G#       Bb9sus4       Eb        Bb/D
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   Cm       Cm/Bb
   La, la, la,
           F/A   G# G#/Eb Bb/D
   Li, di, da.
 Cm     Cm/Bb

 F7/A  Bb
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb/G# | Eb/G | Bb7/F

Eb         Bb/D            G#/C       Eb/Bb
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
G#         Eb/G   F7    Bb
Sing us a song tonight.
            Eb          Bb/D      G#/C   Eb/Bb
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    G#            Bb9sus4   Eb
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb
              Eb | Bb/D | G#/C | Eb/Bb

Fm7 Eb           Bb/D    G#/C            Eb/Bb
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   G#         Eb/G        F7   Bb Bb/C
He gets me my drinks for free.
Bb/D     Eb             Bb/D
And he’s quick with a joke
      G#/C                 Eb/Bb
Or to light up your smoke,
            G#              Bb9sus4     Eb
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb | G#/Eb | G#/Eb

G#/Eb     Eb         Bb/D
He says, “Bill, I believe
        G#/C         Eb/Bb
This is killing me,”
      G#        Eb/G         F7    Bb
As a smile ran away from his face.
           Eb
“Well, I’m sure
       Bb/D         G#/C     Eb/Bb
That I could be a movie star
   G#          Bb9sus4      Eb
If I could get out of this place.”

 Bb/D  Cm       Cm/Bb
   Oh, la, la, la,
           F/A   G# G#/Eb Bb/D
   Li, di, da.
 Cm     Cm/Bb
   La, la,

 F7/A  Bb
   Da, dum.

Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    G#          Eb/G     F7    Bb
Who never had time for a wife.
         Eb             Bb/D
And he’s talking with Davy,
      G#/C           Eb/Bb
Who’s still in the Navy
    G#       Bb9sus4       Eb
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb
              Eb | Bb/D | G#/C | Eb/Bb

              Eb | Eb | G#/Eb | G#/Eb

G#/Eb     Eb        Bb/D       G#/C     Eb/Bb
And the waitress is practicing politics
       G#          Eb/G          F7   Bb
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             Eb          Bb/D
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           G#/C         Eb/Bb
They call “Loneliness,”
         G#          Bb9sus4    Eb
But it’s better than drinking alone.

Fm7    Eb             Bb/D     G#/C      Eb/Bb
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        G#      Eb/G         F    Bb
And the manager gives me a smile,
          Eb              Bb/D
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             G#/C          Eb/Bb
They’ve been coming to see
      G#        Bb9sus4      Eb
To forget about life for a while.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb | G#/Eb | G#/Eb

G#/Eb   Eb        Bb/D          G#/C     Eb/Bb
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        G#          Eb/G         F7    Bb
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         Eb           Bb/D
And they sit at the bar
        G#/C         Eb/Bb
And put bread in my jar,
          G#            Bb9sus4    Eb
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 Bb/D  Cm       Cm/Bb
   Oh, la, la, la,
           F/A   G# G#/Eb Bb/D
