Scenes From An Italian Restaurant

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

a bottle of white
a bottle of red
perhaps a bottle
of ros´┐Ż instead

we'll get a table
near the street
in our old
familiar place

you and i
face-to-face
mm mm

a bottle of red
a bottle of white
it all depends
upon your appetite

i'll meet you
anytime you want
in our italian
restaurant

things are ok with
me these days
i got a good job
i got a good office

i got a new wife
got a new life and
the family is fine

oh we lost touch
long ago
you lost weight

i did not know
you could ever look so
nice after so much time

do you remember
those days
hangin' out at
the village green

engineer boots leather
jackets and
tight blue jeans

oh ya drop a
dime in the box
play a song about
new orleans

cold beer
hot lights
my sweet romantic
teenage nights

ooh hoo
yeah yeah yeah
woo hoo

oh ho
ooh woh

woh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh oh

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh

brenda and eddie were
the popular steadies and
the king and the
queen of the prom

riding around
with the car
top down and
the radio on

nobody looked
any finer
or was more of a hit
at the parkway diner

we never knew
we could want
more than
that outta life

surely brenda
and eddie would
always know
how to survive

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh

brenda and
eddie were still
goin' steady in
the summer of '75

when they
decided the
marriage'd be at
the end of july

everyone said
they were crazy
brenda ya know
that you're much

too lazy and eddie
could never
afford to live
that kinda life

oh but there
we were wavin'
brenda and
eddie goodbye

woh oh
oh oh
oh oh

well they got
an apartment with
deep pile carpets
and a couple

of paintings from sears
a big waterbed that
they bought with
the bread they had saved
for a couple of years

but they
started to fight
when the
money got tight

and they just
didn't count
on the tears

woh oh oh ho
woh oh oh ho
yeah rock 'n' roll

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh

well they lived
for a while
in a very nice style
but it's always
the same in the end

they got a divorce
as a matter of course
and they parted the
closest of friends

then the king
and the queen
went back to
the green but

you can never go back
there again
oh oh oh ho
oh oh oh ho

brenda and eddie
had had it
already by the
summer of '75

from the high
to the low
to the end

of the show
for the rest
of their lives

they couldn't go back
to the greasers
the best they could
do was pick up

their pieces but
we always knew
they would both
find a way to get by

oh and that's
all i heard
about brenda
and eddie

can't tell ya
more 'cause i told
you already and

here we are
wavin' brenda and
eddie goodbye

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh oh oh

yeah yeah yeah

a bottle of red
ooh a bottle of white
whatever kinda mood
you're in tonight

i'll meet you
anytime you want
in our italian
restaurant
