Scenes from a n italian restaurant

INTRO:  F  Bb  C  Bb 
 
 
F                  Bb 
A bottle of white, a bottle of red 
C                     Bb        F 
Perhaps a bottle of rose instead 
C           C/Bb     Am 
Get a table near the street 
             Am/Bb  C 
In our old familiar place 
           Bb      C     Bb 
You and I, face to face, um umm 
F                Bb 
A bottle of red, a bottle of white 
C                      Bb  F 
It all depends on your appetite 
G             G/A     G/B C 
I'll meet you anytime you want 
        C/D C/E  F       Bb 
In our Italian Restaurant 
 
 
SAX SOLO:  C  F  Bb  C  F  Bb 
           Eb  G#  Eb  G#  D 
 
G 
Things are okay with me these days 
G 
Got a good job, got a good office 
C               Am7 
Got a new wife, got a new life 
        D             D D 
And the family's fine 
    G 
Oh, we lost touch long ago 
G 
You lost weight I did not know 
C              Am7                D 
You could ever look so nice after so much time 
 
         Eb                        Bb                 F 
Do you remember those days hanging out at the village green 
Eb                      Bb                     F 
Engineer boots, leather jackets and tight blue jeans 
                Eb                       Bb               F 
Woah you drop a dime in the box play the song about New Orleans 
Eb         Bb 
Cold beer, hot lights 
C          D              G 
My sweet romantic teenage nights 
 
 
RAGTIME BIT:  G    C  Am  D 
              G    C  Am  D 
 
 
PIANO SOLO:  G  G 
             G  G/F  G/E  D 
             G  G/F  G/E  D 
 
 
G  G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
G      G/F    G/E    D 
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
 
 
G 
Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies 
        D                             D C 
And the king and the queen of the prom 
G                      G/B                  C 
Riding around with the car top down and the radio on 
G                 D    D C 
Nobody looked any finer 
       G                    C 
Or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner 
G                      F                          E 
We never knew we could want more than that out of life 
       Am         Am/B        C           D         G 
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive 
 
 
   G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
G      G/F    G/E    D 
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
 
 
G                                              D                      D C 
Brenda and Eddy were still going steady in the summer of seventy five 
G                     G/B                      C 
When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July 
G                       D     D C 
Everyone said they were crazy 
G                           C 
Brenda you know that you're much too lazy 
G                   F                         E 
Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life 
        Am            Am/B   C          D         G 
Oh, but there we were waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye 
 
 
   G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh 
 
 
           C 
Well, they got an apartment with deep pile carpet 
      D                        G 
And a couple of paintings from Sears 
  C 
A big waterbed that they bought with the bread 
         D                     G 
They had saved for a couple of years 
     C 
They started to fight when the money got tight 
         D                        Em         Am 
And they just didn't count on the tears, woh oh, woh oh...yeah rock n roll 
 
 
SAX SOLO:  G  D 
           G  G/B  C 
           G  D  D C 
           G  C 
           G  F  E 
           Am  Am/B  C  D 
 
 
G  G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
           C 
Well, they lived for a while in a very nice style 
         D                         G 
But it's always the same in the end 
     C 
They got a divorce as a matter of course 
         D                            G 
And they parted the closest of friends 
         C 
Then the king and the queen went back to the green 
            D                    Em       Am     D 
But you can never go back there again, oh oh, oh oh 
 
 
G                                          D                     D C 
Brenda and Eddie had had it already by the summer of seventy five 
         G                      G/B 
From the high to the low to the end of the show 
        C 
For the rest of their lives 
     G                       D       D C 
They couldn't go back to the greasers 
    G                           C 
The best they could do was pick up their pieces 
G                         F                      E 
We always knew they would both find a way to get by 
Am           Am/B        C          D 
That's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie 
Am             Am/B         C          D 
Can't tell you more cause I told you already 
    Am          Am/B   C          D         G 
And here we are waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye 
 
 
   G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
G  G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh 
G  G/F    G/E    D 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
