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

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb | C# | G#

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

C#        G#             Eb      C#      G# 
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    C#           G#        Bb7   Eb
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         G#           Eb 
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      C#            G# 
And I knew it complete
     C#       Eb7sus4       G#        Eb 
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   Fm       Fm7 
   La, la, la,
           Bb    C#    Eb 
   Li, di, da.
 Fm     Fm7 
   La, la,
           Bb         Eb 
   Li, di, da,
 Bb7   Eb
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb | G# | Eb7

G#         Eb              C#         G# 
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
C#         G#     Bb7   Eb
Sing us a song tonight.
            G#          Eb        C#     G# 
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    C#            Eb7sus4   G#
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb | C# | G#

Bbm7 G#          Eb      C#              G# 
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   C#         G#          Bb7  Eb   
He gets me my drinks for free.
         G#             Eb 
And he’s quick with a joke
      C#                   G# 
Or to light up your smoke,
            C#              Eb7sus4     G#
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

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

C#        G#         Eb 
He says, “Bill, I believe
        C#           G# 
This is killing me,”
      C#        G#           Bb7   Eb
As a smile ran away from his face.
           G#
“Well, I’m sure
       Eb           C#       G# 
That I could be a movie star
   C#          Eb7sus4      G#
If I could get out of this place.”

 Eb    Fm       Fm7 
   Oh, la, la, la,
           Bb    C#    Eb 
   Li, di, da.
 Fm     Fm7

Instrumental: Eb | Eb | G# | Eb7

Eb7  G#       Eb          C#        G# 
Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    C#          G#       Bb7   Eb
Who never had time for a wife.
         G#             Eb 
And he’s talking with Davy,
      C#             G# 
Who’s still in the Navy
    C#       Eb7sus4       G#
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: G# | G#
              G# | Eb | C# | G#

C#        G#        Eb         C#       G# 
And the waitress is practicing politics
       C#          G#            Bb7  Eb
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             G#          Eb 
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           C#           G# 
They call “Loneliness,”
         C#          Eb7sus4    G#
But it’s better than drinking alone.

Bbm7   G#             Eb       C#        G# 
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        C#      G#           Bb   Eb
And the manager gives me a smile,
          G#              Eb 
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             C#            G# 
They’ve been coming to see
      C#        Eb7sus4      G#
To forget about life for a while.

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

C#      G#        Eb            C#       G# 
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        C#          G#           Bb7   Eb
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         G#           Eb 
And they sit at the bar
        C#           G# 
And put bread in my jar,
          C#            Eb7sus4    G#
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 Eb    Fm       Fm7 
   Oh, la, la, la,
           Bb    C#    Eb 
   Li, di, da.
