I wake up ev'ry mo'nin' with the risin' sun
Thinkin' of my baby and all the good she's done
But ooh-oooh, that don't matter, now

You'll miss your water when your well go dry
I miss my baby when she said, 'Goodbye'
But ooh-oooh, that don't matter, now

I stay so worried
I don't know what to do-ooo
No one to love me or tell my trouble to

'Play that thing, Mr. Piano Man'

'Play it 'till it gets through to ev'rybody'

'Drink another pint, William? '

'I'm gonna get drunk and pitch me a boogie woogie'

'Still a good fella, oh yes! '
'Live a good fella, you'll die one'
'Is that right? '
'Oh, yeah'

I miss her huggin' and her kisses, too
No one could love me like my baby do
But ooh-oooh, that don't matter, now

I miss the way she starch and iron my clothes
I miss the way she give me good jellyroll
But ooh-oooh, that don't matter, now

I'm so unhappy, blue as I can be, oh yes!
I love my baby
Well, she don't care for me
Ooh, yeah.
