"Piano Man" as written by Jordan Omley, Mike Mani, Rodney Roy Jerkins and Marvin Anthony Hemmings....
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
