There ain't no reason for me To hang around this town no more. Gonna pack it up, move on out, And start searchin' for the shore. Sell my life as I know it To anyone with land to buy
'Cause it ain't worth much to me To stay here and sit around and cry. And if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone Speak now darlin' or you will never know.
Well I don't care if you like it 'cause honey this is not your life. I will never be held prisoner, I will never be your wife. Learned that friends are overrated And lovers come and go And if all you do is dream about it Then you've got nothin' to show But if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone Speak now darlin' or you will never know.
'Cause once the engine starts turnin' And these wheels they hit the road I ain't ever comin' back to this town called Chicago. Oh, I'm leavin' it all behind me There ain't no place that I call home. That I'm tearin' this heart right off of my sleeve And I'm turnin' it into stone.
Oh I think I'm gonna miss you when I'm gone. Oh, so kiss me once, kiss me twice Maybe I'll stay for just one more night. And honey, say what you feel, please mean what you say I wanna hold onto you one more day. But if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone Speak now darlin' or you will never know Speak now darlin' or you will never know Speak now darlin' or you will never know

There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
