Everybody always ask me

How I got to play so fine

And friends, I'm gonna tell ya

It really did take some time



Yes, after years and years of practice

And a case of real bad knees

While the other guys were out playin' with the football

I was home bangin' on the keys

And it got me



(*) Right where I am

This is me

Playing the piano

I hope ya like what I do

It's for you

And I'll try and sing right too



I guess I'm really very lucky

That I've got this thing to play

'Cause it can really make me feel good

Even when it's cloudy and grey



Yes, after years and years of practice

And awful allergies that made me sneeze

And now the other guys are out playin' with their girlfriends

And I was still bangin' on the keys

And it got me



Repeat (*)
