F#m7 E      B          A         E   A
It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday,
           E           F#      B    
The regular crowd shuffles in.
           E      B        A          E  
There’s an old man sitting next to me
       A           B7sus4    E
Making love to his tonic and gin.

Instrumental: E | E
              E | B | A | E

              A | B7sus4 B7sus4 B7
              E | E | A | A

A         E              B       A       E  
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    A            E         F#7   B
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         E            B  
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      A             E  
And I knew it complete
     A        B7sus4        E         B  
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   C#m      C#m7 
   La, la, la,
           F#    A     B  
   Li, di, da.
 C#m    C#m7 
   La, la,
           F#         B  
   Li, di, da,
 F#7   B
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: B | B | E | B7

E          B               A          E  
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
A          E      F#7   B
Sing us a song tonight.
            E           B         A      E  
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    A             B7sus4    E
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: E | E
              E | B | A | E

F#m7 E           B       A               E  
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   A          E           F#7  B    
He gets me my drinks for free.
         E              B  
And he’s quick with a joke
      A                    E  
Or to light up your smoke,
            A               B7sus4      E
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

Instrumental: E | E | A | A

A         E          B  
He says, “Bill, I believe
        A            E  
This is killing me,”
      A         E            F#7   B
As a smile ran away from his face.
           E
“Well, I’m sure
       B            A        E  
That I could be a movie star
   A           B7sus4       E
If I could get out of this place.”

 B     C#m      C#m7 
   Oh, la, la, la,
           F#    A     B  
   Li, di, da.
 C#m    C#m7 
   La, la,
           F#         B  
   Li, di, da,
 F#7   B
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: B | B | E | B7

B7   E        B           A         E  
Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    A           E        F#7   B
Who never had time for a wife.
         E              B  
And he’s talking with Davy,
      A              E  
Who’s still in the Navy
    A        B7sus4        E
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: E | E
              E | B | A | E
              A | B7sus4 B7sus4 B7

              E | E | A | A

A         E         B          A        E  
And the waitress is practicing politics
       A           E             F#7  B
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             E           B  
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           A            E  
They call “Loneliness,”
         A           B7sus4     E
But it’s better than drinking alone.

E          B               A          E  
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man.
A          E      F#7   B
Sing us a song tonight.
            E           B         A      E

F#m7   E              B        A         E  
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        A       E            F#   B
And the manager gives me a smile,
          E               B  
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             A             E  
They’ve been coming to see
      A         B7sus4       E
To forget about life for a while.

Instrumental: E | E | A | A

A       E         B             A        E  
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        A           E            F#7   B
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         E            B  
And they sit at the bar
        A            E  
And put bread in my jar,
          A             B7sus4     E
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 B     C#m      C#m7 
   Oh, la, la, la,
           F#    A     B  
   Li, di, da.
 C#m    C#m7 
   La, la,
           F#         B  
   Li, di, da,
 F#7   B
   Da, dum.

Sing us a song tonight.
            E           B         A      E  
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody

And you’ve got us feeling alright.
