Lyrics and Music by Billy Joel


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.”

   La, la, la,
   Li, di, da.
   La, la,
   Li, di, da,
   Da, dum.

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.”

   Oh, la, la, la,
   Li, di, da.
   La, la,
   Li, di, da,
   Da, dum.

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 practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
They call “Loneliness,”
But it’s 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, it 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?”

   Oh, la, la, la,
   Li, di, da.
   La, la,
   Li, di, da,
   Da, dum.

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.
