Piano Man by Johnny Diggz @ Railsberry
It's 8:00 o'clock on a Friday
The regular crowd shuffles in
there's an old man sitting next to me
making love to his beer
la la di di da
la la di di da
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 got us feeling all right!
(hey! who's feeling all right?)
(Well if you're not, tonight go see ..)
to John at the bar, he's 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 some place that he'd rather be
he says "Diggz, I believe this is killing me"
as the smile run away from his face
well I'm sure I could be a Rails programmer
if I could get out of this place
la la di di da
la la di di da
now Paul is an O'Reilly media novelist
who never had time for a wife
and he's talking with Susan,
who programms in Cold Fusion
and probably will be for life...
And the waitress is practicing politics
as the businessmen slowly gets stoned
yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
but it's better than coding in PHP
la la di di da
la la di di da
it's a pretty good crowd for Railsberry
it's a pretty quiet crowd at Railsberry
it's an awesome crowd a Railsberry!
And Ela gives me the smile
'cause she knows it wasn't me whom they were coming to see
To forget about life for a while
And the piano sounds like a carnival
and the microphone smells like beer
And they sit at the bar and put a bread in my jar
And say "Man, what are you doing here?"
la la di di da
la la di di da
