Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain go straight across
Roll the girls away, circle left
Four ladies roll away, circle left I say
Left allemande, weave the ring
Now that piano sounds like a carnival
Swing your girl and promenade
Oh, give us a song, you're the piano man
Now you've got us feelin' alright


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you do
Dosado around the corner go
Swing thru and then, spin the top my friend
Move up and do a right & left thru
Square thru 3/4, swing the corner girl and promenade
Oh, give us a song, you're the piano man
Now you've got us feelin' alright


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows it's me they've been comin' to see
To forget about life for a while

Circle left
And the piano sounds like a carnival
Left allemande, swing your girl and promenade
Oh, give us a song, you're the piano man
Now you've got us feelin' alright


TAG

Oh ya, you've got us feelin' alright

Piano Man
 
 

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 la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Chorus:
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 feelin' 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 the 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"

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talkin' 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 drinkin' alone

Chorus

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 comin' to see
To forget about life for a while
And the piano, it 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 doin' here?"

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Chorus

Lyrics by Billy Joel.
Recorded by Billy Joel.
