Well were all in the mood for a melody and youve got us feeling all right


Now Paul at the bar hes a freind of mine, he gets me my drinks for free

And hes quick with a joke and a light of your smoke but theres some place 

that hed rather be

He says bill i beilive this is killing me as the smile ran away from his 

face, Well im sure that I could be a movie star,if I could get out of this 

Now Paul is a real estate novelist who never had time for a wife

And hes talking with Davy whos still in the navy and probably will be for


And the waitress is practising politics As the businessmen slowly get stoned

yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness but its better than 

drinking alone
its a pretty good crowd for a saturday And the manager gives me a smile

Cause he knows that its me they've been coming to see To forget about life

for a while

And the piano sounds like a carnival and the microphone smells like a beer

And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar and say man what are you 

doing here? 

(Repeat Chorus)
