Sing us a song, piano man

BILLY JOEL – PIANO MAN

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’s sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man’s clothes”

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 alright

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 someplace 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”

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

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 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 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?”

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 alright

  1. nawiedzonypablo

    Bardzo mi się podoba. Taka nastrojowa…

  2. E tam, skoro już jesteś na Węgrzech, to lepiej byś posłuchał Ektomorfa. To taka węgierska kapela metalowa, jedna z najlepszych na świecie, dla mnie the best. Grają podobnie do Sepultury i Soulflay’a, ale w ich muzyce słychać wyraźne wątki z węgierskiej muzyki ludowej. Przy czym jest to taki potężny wyziew, że tynk ze ścian odpada. Pozdrowiszcze.

  3. Ja tam metalu to raczej oszczędnie, Rammstein trochę, trochę Iron Maiden, trochę ostatnio Tiamat. Wolę ostatnio Dylana i Joela, jakos mnie nastawiaja pozytywnie:

    Pozdrawiam:)
