The Lyrics Are Below


Billy Joel

Where's the Orchestra?




Where's the orchestra?

Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?

Here I am in the balcony

How the hell could I have missed the overture?

I like the scenery

Even though I have absolutely no

Idea at all

What is being said despite the dialogue

There's the leading man

The movie star who never faced an audience

Where's the orchestra?


After all

This is my big night on the town

My introduction to the theater crowd

I assumed that the show would have a song

So I was wrong


At least I understand

All the innuendo and the irony

And I appreciate

The roles the actors played

The point the author made

And after the closing lines

And after the curtain calls

The curtain falls

On empty chairs

Where's the orchestra?
