Billy Joel – Where's The Orchestra? lyrics

Where's the orchestra?
Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
Here I am,..
In the balcony,
How the hell could I have missed the overture?
I like the scenery
Even though, I have absolutely no,.. Idea at all,...
What is being said, despite the dialogue,
There's the leading man
The movie star who never faced an audience
Where's the orchestra?
After all, this is my big night on the town
My introduction to the theatre crowd
I assumed that the show would have a song
So I was wrong
At least I understand
All the innuendo and the irony
And I appreciate,
The roles the actors played
The point the author made
And after the closing lines,
And after the curtain calls,...
The curtain falls...
On empty chairs,.
Where's the orchestra?
