Where's the Orchestra?

This song is by Billy Joel and appears on the album The Nylon Curtain (1982).

Original video
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?

Written by:

Billy Joel
