    Current mood: content
    Current music:Piano Man -- Billy Joel

    i love this song
    Song: Piano Man
    Artist: 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 sweet and I knew it
    complete when I were a younger man's clothes."

    Bridge: la la didi daa
    la la didi daa
    daa dum

    Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
    Sing us a song tonight
    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 drink for free
    and he's a 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 the smile ran away from his face
    "well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
    if could get out of this place."

    Bridge

    Now paul is a real estate novelist
    Who never had time for a wife
    And he's talking with Davey 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

    Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
    Sing us a song tonight
    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 awhile

    And the piano 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?"

    Bridge

    Chorus: Sing us a song, you're the piano man
    Sing us a song tonight
    We're all in the mood for a melody
    and you've got us feeling alright
