This is free piano sheet music for unknown author, The Entertainer provided by www.sheetdownload.com. "The Entertainer" is a single by singer Billy Joel released as the only single from his 1974 album Streetlife Serenade. The song peaked at #34 on the US charts, a Top 40 hit for Joel that year. The song is a cynical and somewhat satirical look at the fleeting fame of a musician and fickle public tastes ("Today I am your champion. / I may have won your hearts. / But I know the game. / You'll forget my name. / And I won't be here / in another year / if I don't stay on the charts. "); this theme would be examined in the later song "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me". Another verse in the song references the shortening of Joel's song, "Piano Man", from 5 minutes and 38 seconds to 3 minutes and 5 seconds to fit a radio slot, referenced by the lyrics "It was a beautiful song, / but it ran too long. / If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit. / So they cut it down to 3:05. " Additionally, the timing printed on the label of the 7" release of "The Entertainer" was 3:05, although the actual 45 length was 3:11 . In the single version, Verse 3 is edited out, and Verse 2 contains a steel guitar in its second half, which is not present on the album mix. On some of the singles released for "The Entertainer" the song was b-sided with "The Mexican Connection".
