Lyrics

“Just Another Piano Man”

Nobodies listenin to me playin piano
At the bar tonight
Theyre talkin and drinkin, but nobodies thinkin
Well, I guess thats alright

Cause you know I am noone,
I’m just another face in the crowd
My boss he told me that
I’ll still have a job here
Long as I dont play too loud

The glasses are clinkin
And the boys they are drinkin
The jukebox is too loud
The waitresses talkin
And the people are walkin in
We’re gettin a crowd

And the bartenders yellin,
She needs another bucket of ice
I think I’ll go and have another drink
Because its cheap at twice the price

And I’ve played Billy Joels “Piano Man”
For the hundredth time tonight
And one drunk always yells “FREE BIRD!”
And tries to pick a fight
And the people only want to hear
The songs someone else wrote down
Cos Im just another piano man in this town

Well I play Manilow and Elton John
And Beatles, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra,Doobie Brothers,
Eagles, Tony Bennett, too
Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Johnny Mathis, Lady Gaga,
Ballads, Jazz and rock and roll, and old Chicago Blues
Sting, Stones, Buble’, Chicago, David Cassidy, and Paul McCartney,
Michael Jackson, Huey Lewis, too,
Thats the only reason that Im playing tonight
Cos I’m the only piano man in sight!

And the people only want to hear
The songs someone else wrote down
Cos Im just another piano man
Yes, Im just another piano man,
Well, Im just another piano man in this town
