The Lyrics Are Below


Billy Joel

Christie Lee




Let me tell you a story

About a woman and a man

Maybe you will find familiar

Maybe you won't understand


The man's name I don't remember

He was always Joe to me

But I can't forget the woman

She was always Christie Lee


He was working in a night club

That's where he played the saxophone

He used to fake to stock arrangements

He left the customers alone


But one night before the last song

About a quarter after three

He saw her standing at the coat check

And made his move on Christie Lee


Christie Lee, Christie Lee

Christie Lee, Christie Lee


She was a nice piece of music

She had a rhythm all her own

He blew a solo like a blind man

She really dug his saxophone


She wanted more than just an encore

And he could play in every key

He left the stage and packed his alto

And he took it home with Christie Lee


Oh I heard the man knew "the Bird" like the bible

You know the man could blow an educated axe

He couldn't see that Christie Lee was a woman

Who didn't need another lover

All she wanted was the sax


It took a while for him to notice

It took a while for him to see

He was never in control here

It was always Christie Lee


Christie Lee, Christie Lee

Christie Lee, Christie Lee


Oh the man took a calculated gamble

Yes the man had the power to perform

But Christie Lee was more than he knew how to handle

She didn't need him as a man

All she wanted was the horn


They say that Joe became a wino

They say he always drinks alone

They say he stumbles like a blind man

They say he sold his saxophone


Even the band must face the music

That's what the moral is to me

The only time you hit the high note

Is when you play for Christie Lee


Christie Lee, Christie Lee

Christie Lee, Christie Lee
