lyrics

Whorehouse Piano

Well I rock up to work, and I wipe off the seat,
The pay isn’t so bad, but it’s the people I meet.
You come to see the ladies, and got to wait a little time?
I play the whorehouse piano, every night.

The customer all know me, by my first name,
Although I gave them a fake one, to them it’s all the same.
The middle C needs tuning, but tonight it sounds alright,
I play the whorehouse piano, every night.
I used to play in bands, and I used to write songs
But that all dried up one day, when people stopped singing along.
But round here, they love me,
And tonight I sound alright,
I play the Whorehouse piano every night.

The red light shines on, any time of day.
You come in on your way home from work,
Or you come on the way.
I’ll be here playing my tunes from five,
Though I’ve tried to leave this place, a thousand times.
But it keeps on calling, calling me back here again,
The piano in the lobby is my only friend.
And when I’m not playing my tunes for you,
When I finish my shift, I’m a customer too.


Well I rock up to work, and I wipe off the seat,
The pay ain’t so bad, but it’s the people I meet.
You come to see the ladies, and got to wait a little time?
I play the whorehouse piano,
in the lobby,
by the pool table and bar,
and the cigarette machine…
Until the day that I die.
