The lyrics of Piano Man by Billy Joel paint a picture of a night at a piano bar from the pianist/singer's perspective. Using very few words he managed to convey a character study of an aging man having a drink and reminiscing, John the bartender who dreams of being a movie star, Paul, the real estate "novelist" who is closeted and hitting on Davie. But most of all, the listener feels the angst of the performer singing night after night and being told he's too good for that place, yet he has to lay his heart on the line with his music to make a living.
