Gb Ebm7 Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Intro: |/ / / /|/ / / /|/ / / /|/ / / /||
Gb Ebm7 The piano has been drinking
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) My necktie is asleep
Gb Ebm7 And the combo went back to New York
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) The jukebox has to take a leak

Gb Ebm7 And the carpet needs a haircut
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) And the spotlight looks like a prison break
Gb Ebm7 'Cause the telephone's out of cigarettes
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 And the balcony's on the make
Gb Ebm7 And the piano has been drinking
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 The piano has been drinking
Gb Ebm7 And the menus are all freezing
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) And the light man's blind in one eye
Gb Ebm7 And he can't see out of the other
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) And the piano-tuner's got a hearing aid
Gb Ebm7 And he showed up with his mother
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 And the piano has been drinking
Gb Ebm7 The piano has been drinking
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) 'Cause the bouncer is a sumo wrestler
Gb Ebm7 Cream puff Casper milk toast
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 And the owner is a mental midget
Gb Ebm7 With the I.Q. of a fencepost
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 'Cause the piano has been drinking
Gb Ebm7 The piano has been drinking
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 And you can't find your waitress
Gb Ebm7 With a geiger counter
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) And she hates you and your friends
Gb Ebm7 And you just can't get served without her
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 And the box-office is drooling
Gb Ebm7 And the bar stools are on fire
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) And the newspapers were fooling
Gb Ebm7 And the ash-trays have retired
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) 'Cause the piano has been drinking
Gb Ebm7 The piano has been drinking
Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Db7 The piano has been drinking
Gb Ebm7 Abm7 Db7(9sus4) Gb Not me, not me, not me, not me, not me
