Lyrics and Music by Billy Joel


Intro: :3/4: Bbm7 | Bbm9 | Bbdim7
       :4/4: Bbdim7

       :3/4: G# | Eb/G | C#/F | G#/Eb
       C#maj | G#/C | Bb7 | Eb

       G# | Eb/G | C#/F | G#/Eb

       G#maj | C# G#/C Bbm7  } ×2

Bbm7 G#     Eb/G       C#/F      G#/Eb C#
It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday,
           G#/C        Bb      Eb Eb/F
The regular crowd shuffles in.
Eb/G       G#     Eb/G     C#/F       G#/Eb
There’s an old man sitting next to me
       C#          Eb7sus4   G#
Making love to his tonic and gin.

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb/G | C#/F | G#/Eb

              C# | Eb7sus4 Eb7sus4 Eb7
              G# | G# | C#/G# | C#/G#

C#/G#     G#             Eb/G    C#/F    G#/Eb
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    C#           G#/C      Bb7   Eb
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         G#           Eb/G
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      C#/F          G#/Eb
And I knew it complete
     C#       Eb9sus4       G#        Eb/G
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   Fm       Fm/Eb
   La, la, la,
           Bb/D  C# C#/G# Eb/G
   Li, di, da.
 Fm     Fm/Eb
   La, la,
           Bb/D  Bb/D Eb/C
   Li, di, da,
 Bb7/D Eb
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb/C# | G#/C | Eb7/Bb

G#         Eb/G            C#/F       G#/Eb
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
C#         G#/C   Bb7   Eb
Sing us a song tonight.
            G#          Eb/G      C#/F   G#/Eb
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    C#            Eb9sus4   G#
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb/G | C#/F | G#/Eb
              C# | Eb7sus4 Eb7sus4 Eb7

              G# | C#/G#
              G#maj | C# G#/C Bbm7  } ×2

Bbm7 G#          Eb/G    C#/F            G#/Eb
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   C#         G#/C        Bb7  Eb Eb/F
He gets me my drinks for free.
Eb/G     G#             Eb/G
And he’s quick with a joke
      C#/F                 G#/Eb
Or to light up your smoke,
            C#              Eb9sus4     G#
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

Instrumental: G# | G# | C#/G# | C#/G#

C#/G#     G#         Eb/G
He says, “Bill, I believe
        C#/F         G#/Eb
This is killing me,”
      C#        G#/C         Bb7   Eb
As a smile ran away from his face.
           G#
“Well, I’m sure
       Eb/G         C#/F     G#/Eb
That I could be a movie star
   C#          Eb9sus4      G#
If I could get out of this place.”

 Eb/G  Fm       Fm/Eb
   Oh, la, la, la,
           Bb/D  C# C#/G# Eb/G
   Li, di, da.
 Fm     Fm/Eb
   La, la,

   Da, dum.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb/C# | G#/C | Eb7/Bb

Eb7/Bb G#     Eb/G        C#/F      G#/Eb
Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    C#          G#/C     Bb7   Eb
Who never had time for a wife.
         G#             Eb/G
And he’s talking with Davy,
      C#/F           G#/Eb
Who’s still in the Navy
    C#       Eb9sus4       G#
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb/G | C#/F | G#/Eb
              C# | Eb7sus4 Eb7sus4 Eb7

              G# | G# | C#/G# | C#/G#

C#/G#     G#        Eb/G       C#/F     G#/Eb
And the waitress is practicing politics
       C#          G#/C          Bb7  Eb
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             G#          Eb/G
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           C#/F         G#/Eb
They call “Loneliness,”
         C#          Eb9sus4    G#
But it’s better than drinking alone.

G#         Eb/G            C#/F       G#/Eb
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man.
C#         G#/C   Bb7   Eb

Bbm7   G#             Eb/G     C#/F      G#/Eb
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        C#      G#/C         Bb   Eb
And the manager gives me a smile,
          G#              Eb/G
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             C#/F          G#/Eb
They’ve been coming to see
      C#        Eb9sus4      G#
To forget about life for a while.

Instrumental: G# | G# | C#/G# | C#/G#

C#/G#   G#        Eb/G          C#/F     G#/Eb
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        C#          G#/C         Bb7   Eb
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         G#           Eb/G
And they sit at the bar
        C#/F         G#/Eb
And put bread in my jar,
          C#            Eb9sus4    G#
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 Eb/G  Fm       Fm/Eb
   Oh, la, la, la,
           Bb/D  C# C#/G# Eb/G
