WORN-DOWN PIANO The Mark & Clark Band Each Tuesday morning, they'd all stand in line the auction would open promptly at nine the gavel came down on the auctioneer's block and the bidding began on a grandfather's clock next up a bid in the rear of the room a piano worn down and a bit out of tune who stopped the bidding, the auctioneer quiet (?) No voices rang out, so just put it aside shouts filled the room and the auction went on but the cries of the crowd were stopped by a song everyone turned to the rear of the room to that worn down piano, a bit out of tune Oh the days long ago when the crowds came around to hear that piano ring out with sound but the crowds have all gone and the symphony's through and the piano cries out: "let me play once for you" A man with a torn coat and a hole in one shoe sat playing the song that nobody knew the music rang out and that song filled the room from that worn down piano, a bit out of tune Then from the crowd a man shouted a bid "one thousand dollars for that piano I'll give" "two thousand", "three thousand", and the bidding went on as the man in the torn coat kept playing that song The bidding grew tense each bid more and more till the five thousand figure rang out from the floor the man in the torn coat just sat there and stared playing that song as if no-one were there oh the days long ago when the crowds came around to hear that piano ring out with sound but the crowds have all gone and the symphony's through and the piano cries out: "let me play once for you" The man in the torn coat plaid as if to say "I too want your piano but I've nothing to pay I'd give all I own if you could be mine but all I can bid is this bottle of wine" "sold to the gaffer (?)", rang out through the air (?) The auction blahblah (?) "Top that bid if you dare" "yes give him the piano, maestro play loud" but who's the man, in the torn coat gown (?) It's a quarter past five and the bidding is done everything's sold and now leave one by one the auction is over and left in that room is that worn down piano, still a bit out of tune oh the days long ago when the crowds came around to hear that piano ring out with sound but the crowds have all gone and the symphony's through and the piano cries out: "let me once play for you"
