Words by Jerry Leger / Music by Dan Mock

lyrics

The Piano Went Frantic (Leger)
The piano went frantic
The bass was getting out of here
The guitar followed
But was lured back
With a taste of wine soaked minutes
The sax played through the misunderstandings
And soon found everything had gone mad
For the same madness

The feeling was climbing
The barroom was empty
While the broom swept off time
Flirting with brush strokes
Upon the skin and the shimmer
It was dark
Except for the dim lights
Bouncing off of the bottles
And ashtrays

The piano sang quietly
Trickling down the spine
Of the cracked plastered walls
Someone got dizzy
Fell onto the lowside
Guitars laughed
The sound was here
Ordered a tall one
Started up a conversation
With the saxophone
Then the organ got jealous
Blew kisses and showed some leg

Smoke was dancing all through
The madness
It was a mad scene
Drums were coughing
The whole room kept breathing it in
There was a knock on the door
Come on in
If you can that thing
come on in
If you can't
Just play it anyway
Play it
Man
Play it
