Song Lyrics:
It was the 3rd of June another sooty smoggy Brooklyn day
I was upstairs chopping cocaine, my brother was smoking a J
I hollered down to my mama, can you tell me what's for dinner please?
She said we might go to the Peking Palace, get some take-out Chinese
And then she said I heard some news this morning when I was in Bay Ridge
They say that Billy Joel jumped off the Verrazano-Narrows

Do you remember when Billy sang Only the Good Die Young?
Papa said "If that was true he'd be here alive, pass the egg foo yung"
And Mama said "I really liked him with Liza Minelli in that movie Cabaret"
I said, "Mama that wasn't Billy Joel, that was Joel Gray"
She said, "That's right, we saw that at the cinema in Bay who's the hell's this Billy Joel who jumped
off the Verrazano bridge?"

Well, Papa hardly touched his egg roll, he wasn't feeling up to par
I said Dad that's OK, I love you just the way you are
I said I met that new rabbi Jacob Goldstein in the streets today
He asked, why weren't you in temple on Saturday--oh by the way
He said he saw a man who looked a lot like you, Papa, up in Bay Ridge
And he and Billy Joel were throwing someone off the Verazzano bridge

A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joel
The music scene has changed, there's a new trend in rock and roll
It seems that making that big splash has been one of the latest things
Oops, there goes Paul McCartney--guess he forgot his Wings
And now there's Elton, Rod, and Mick giving farewell concerts at Bay Ridge
And now papa's scalping tickets all along the Verazzano bridge

I'm the piano man
And I'm in a New York State of Mind
But it's all just rock n roll to me
Because you Catholic girls start way too young
I'm in a New York State of Mind
I love me just the way I am...
