"Rhyme-o-Mance"
by Joe ol' Bill



It's past sunset in the Magic K
The regular crowd shuffles in
An old Carny's mark sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore my old livery-clothes"

La la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum....

Sing us a song, you're the Rhyme-o-Mance
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright



Now Jojo the barman'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 someplace that he'd rather be

He says, "Joe, I believe this is croakin' me"
As the smile ran away from his face
"Well I'm sure I could be a Qualified
If I could get out of this place"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum



Now Buck is a Dirtmancer hiring out
Who never makes time for a fool
And he's talkin' with Davy of Elitabit's Navy
Who's probably shootin' up pool

And the Hippie is practicing politics
As the Moneymancers are getting stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call "loneliness"
But it's better than drinkin' alone

Sing us a song, you're the Rhyme-o-Mance
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright



It's a pretty good crowd for this time o' night
The Date-a-mancer gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
To forget about Erf for a while

And the Rhyming, it sounds like a marvel
And the Erfbrau, it's served with a cheer
And they sit at the bar and put Rands in my jar
And say, "Man, what are you doin' here?"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum



Sing us a song, you're the Rhyme-o-Mance
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright



[Original lyrics: Piano Man by Billy Joel]
