Scenes From An Italian Restaurant
Billy Joel

Lyrics

A bottle of white,
a bottle of red,
perhaps a bottle of Rose instead.
We'll get a table near the street, in our old familiar place.
You and I, face to face.
Mmm hmm.
A bottle of red,
a bottle of white,
It all depends upon your appetite.
I'll meet you anytime you want,
in our Italian Restaurant.
Things are okay with me these days, got a good job, I got a good office.
Got a new wife, I got a new life, and the family is fine.
We lost touch long ago, you lost weight, I did not know...
you could ever look so nice after so much time.
Do you remember those days, hangin' out at the Village Green?
Engineer boots, leather jackets and tight blue jeans.
Oh, you'd drop a dime in the box and play a song about New Orleans.
Cold beer!
Hot lights!
My sweet romantic teenage nights.
Oooh oooh.
Yeah, yeah yeah!
Oooh oooh!
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh!
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies and the king and the queen of the prom.
Riding around with the car top down and the radio on.
Nobody looked any finer,
or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner,
we never knew we could want more than that out of life.
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive.
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
Brenda and Eddie were still goin' steady in the summer of '75,
when they decided the marriage would be at the end of July.
Everyone said they were crazy,
Brenda, you know that you're much too lazy,
and Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life.
Oh, but there we were wavin' Brenda and Eddie goodbye.
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh!
Well they got an apartment with deep pile carpets and a couple of paintings from Sears.
A big water bed that they bought with the bread they had saved for a couple of years.
But they started to fight when the money got tight, and they just didn't count on the tears.
Woah, woah.
Yeah, look at 'em roll!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh!
Well they lived for a while in a very nice style, but its always the same in the end.
They got a divorce as a matter of course, and they parted the closest of friends.
Then the king and the queen went back to the green, but you can never go back there again.
Woah, woah.
Brenda and Eddie had had it already by the summer of '75.
From the high to the low, to the end of the show, for the rest of their lives.
They couldn't go back to the greasers,
the best they could do was pick up their pieces,
but we always knew they would both find a way to get by.
Oh, and that's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie.
Can't tell you more, 'cause I told you already.
And here we are wavin' Brenda and Eddie goodbye.
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Woah oh, woah oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Yeah, yeah yeah!
A bottle of red,
Mmm, a bottle of white.
Whatever kind of mood you're in tonight.
I'll meet you any time you want, in our Italian Restaurant.
