It's [C]nine o'[G7/B]clock on a [F/A]saturday [C/G]    
the [F]regular [C/E]crowd shuffles [D7]in    [G]

Makin' [F]love to his [G]tonic and [C]gin  

[C]    [G7/B]    [F/A]    [C/G]    
[F]    [G]    [C]    
[C]    [Csus4]    
He says "[C]Son can you [G7/B]play me a [F/A]memory[C/G] ?    
I'm [F]not really [C/E]sure how it [D7]goes [G]    
But it's [C]sad and it's [G7/B]sweet and I [F/A]knew it com[C/G]plete    
when [F]I wore a [G]younger man's [C]clothes"

Now [C]John at the [G7/B]bar is a [F/A]friend of mine, [C]    
he [F]gets me my [C/E]drinks for [D7]free [G]    
And he's [C]quick with a [G7/B]joke or to [F/A]light up your [C/G]smoke,
but there's [F]some place that [G]he'd rather [C]be  
[C]    [Csus4]    
He says "[C]Bill I be[G7/B]lieve this is [F/A]killing me"[C/G]    
As a [F]smile ran a[C/E]way from his [D7]face [G]    
"Well I'm [C]sure that I [G7/B]could be a [F/A]movie [C/G]star    
If [F]I could get [G]out of this [C]place"

and [F]probably [G]will be for [C]life
[C]    [G7/B]    [F/A]    [C/G]    
[F]    [G]    [C]    
[C]    [Csus4]    
And the [C]waitress is [G7/B]practicing [F/A]politics,
[C/G] as the [F]businessmen [C/E]slowly get [D7]stoned [G]    
Yes they're [C]sharing a [G7/B]drink they call [F/A]loneli[C/G]ness,    
but it's [F]better than [G]drinking a[C]lone

It's a [C]pretty good [G7/B]crowd for a [F/A]saturday [C]    
and the [F]manager [C/E]gives me a [D7]smile [G]    
Cause he [C]knows that it's [G7/B]me     
that they've been [F/A]coming to [C/G]see    
To for[F]get about [G]life for a [C]while
[C]    [Csus4]    
And the [C]piano [G7/B]sounds like a [F/A]carnival[C/G]    
and the [F]microphone [C/E]smells like a [D7]beer [G]    
And they [C]sit at the [G7/B]bar and put [F/A]bread in my [C/G]jar    
and say "[F]Man what are [G]you doing [C]here ?"

It's nine o'clock on a saturday
the regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' 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 da da de de da
da da de de da da da

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 all right




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 some place 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"

La da da de de da
da da de de da da da

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

( Pianosolo)




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 all right




It's a pretty good crowd for a saturday
and the manager gives me a smile
Cause he knows that it's me
that they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

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 ?"

Da da da de de da
da da de de da da da

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 all right
