C#m7 B      F#         E         B   E
It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday,
           B           C#      F#   
The regular crowd shuffles in.
           B      F#       E          B  
There’s an old man sitting next to me
       E           F#7sus4   B
Making love to his tonic and gin.

Instrumental: B | B
              B | F# | E | B

              E | F#7sus4 F#7sus4 F#7
              B | B | E | E

E         B              F#      E       B  
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
    E            B         C#7   F#
I’m not really sure how it goes,
         B            F# 
But it’s sad and it’s sweet,
      E             B  
And I knew it complete
     E        F#7sus4       B         F# 
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

   G#m      G#m7 
   La, la, la,
           C#    E     F# 
   Li, di, da.
 G#m    G#m7 
   La, la,
           C#         F# 
   Li, di, da,
 C#7   F#
   Da, dum.

Instrumental: F# | F# | B | F#7

B          F#              E          B  
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
E          B      C#7   F#
Sing us a song tonight.
            B           F#        E      B  
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
    E             F#7sus4   B
And you’ve got us feeling alright.

Instrumental: B | B
              B | F# | E | B

C#m7 B           F#      E               B  
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine.
   E          B           C#7  F#   
He gets me my drinks for free.
         B              F# 
And he’s quick with a joke
      E                    B  
Or to light up your smoke,
            E               F#7sus4     B
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be.

Instrumental: B | B | E | E

E         B          F# 
He says, “Bill, I believe
        E            B  
This is killing me,”
      E         B            C#7   F#
As a smile ran away from his face.
           B
“Well, I’m sure
       F#           E        B  
That I could be a movie star
   E           F#7sus4      B
If I could get out of this place.”

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

Instrumental: F# | F# | B | F#7

F#7  B        F#          E         B  
Now Paul is a real estate novelist,
    E           B        C#7   F#
Who never had time for a wife.
         B              F# 
And he’s talking with Davy,
      E              B  
Who’s still in the Navy
    E        F#7sus4       B
And probably will be for life.

Instrumental: B | B
              B | F# | E | B
              E | F#7sus4 F#7sus4 F#7

              B | B | E | E

E         B         F#         E        B  
And the waitress is practicing politics
       E           B             C#7  F#
As the businessmen slowly get stoned.
             B           F# 
Yes, they’re sharing a drink
           E            B  
They call “Loneliness,”
         E           F#7sus4    B
But it’s better than drinking alone.

C#m7   B              F#       E         B  
It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
        E       B            C#   F#
And the manager gives me a smile,
          B               F# 
‘Cause he knows that it’s me
             E             B  
They’ve been coming to see
      E         F#7sus4      B
To forget about life for a while.

Instrumental: B | B | E | E

E       B         F#            E        B  
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival,
        E           B            C#7   F#
And the microphone smells like a beer.
         B            F# 
And they sit at the bar
        E            B  
And put bread in my jar,
          E             F#7sus4    B
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”

 F#    G#m      G#m7 
   Oh, la, la, la,
           C#    E     F# 
   Li, di, da.
 G#m    G#m7 
   La, la,

 C#7   F#
   Da, dum.
