Piano Man

  • Mr. Piano Man

    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love

    Do you have a request book handy I could flip through?
    I do, he said "My name is Rodney, good to meet you"
    "What do you wanna hear tonight?" He asked me
    I said "Something I can feel inside", Ohh
    "I got what you need, I know exactly
    Why don't we give this a try?"

    Play me a song about heartache, I promise I could sing every word (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play me a song about love lost, 'cause that's another one everyone's heard
    Strike up the band
    We can have the whole world singing tonight
    We can have the whole world singing tonight
    Come on, we can have the whole world singing tonight
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (Mr. Piano Man)

    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man), man
    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love

    Oh, he played a song filled with sadness, I believed him
    Each note was drippin' with madness, I could see it
    We were lost in the music, everyone knew it
    The truth was in the air tonight
    I could see all the faces, they started to say it
    "Won't you please"

    Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word (Mr. Piano Man), every word
    Play me a song about love lost (love lost), 'cause that's another one everyone's heard
    Strike up the band
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (we can have the whole world singing tonight)
    We can have the whole world singing tonight
    Come on, we can have the whole world singing tonight
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (Mr. Piano Man)

    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love

    He was going for hours, people cryin' showers
    No one ever really tells how it is
    I sang about the hopeless 'cause everyone knows it, knows it
    And it was so honest
    Finally breathin' some clean air, been through it and seen it
    I've witnessed all the pain, oh
    And as spotlight was fading, he just kept on playing, oh woah

    Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word (Mr. Piano Man), I promise
    Play me a song about love lost (song), 'cause that's another one everyone's heard
    Strike up the band
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (whole world singing tonight)
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (whole world singing tonight)
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (yeh, yeh)
    We can have the whole world singing tonight (Mr. Piano Man), oh

    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man), oh
    Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man), ooh
    Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
    Play a song for love Writer/s: JORDAN OMLEY, MARVIN HEMMINGS, MIKE MANI, RODNEY JERKINS
