THE OLD PIANO PLAYER



A gray-headed old man shuffled into a downtown bar holding his head
up high. His hands shook as he took the "Piano Player Wanted" sign
from the window and handed it to the bartender.

"I'd like to apply for the job," he said. “I was a Navy F-4 pilot
off the USS Coral Sea. I learned to play the piano at Officers' Club
happy hours while in port, so here I am."

The barkeep wasn't too sure about this doubtful looking old guy, but
it had been quite a while since he had a piano player and business was
falling off. So, why not give him a try.

The old pilot shuffled his way over to the piano while several
patrons snickered. By the time he was into his third bar of music,
every voice was silenced. What followed was a rhapsody of soaring music
unlike anything heard in the bar before. When he finished there wasn't
a dry eye in the place.

The bartender took the old Navy pilot a beer and asked him the name
of the song he had just played. It's called "Drop your Skivvies, Baby,
I'm Going Balls To The Wall For You" he said. After along pull from
the beer, leaving it empty, he said "I wrote it myself."

The bartender and the crowd winced at the title, but the piano
player just went on into a knee-slapping, hand-clapping bit of ragtime
that had the place jumping. After he finished, the F-4 pilot
acknowledged the applause, downed a second offered mug, and told the
crowd the song was called, "Big Boobs Make My Afterburner Light."

He then launched into another mesmerizing song and everyone in the
room was enthralled. He announced that it was the latest rendition of
his song, "Spread 'em Baby; It's Foggy Out Tonight and I Need To See
The Centerline", excused himself and headed for the john.

When he came out the bartender went over to him and said, "Hey, Fly
boy, the job is yours; but do you know your fly is open and your pecker
is hanging out?

"Know it?" the old fighter pilot replied, "Hell, I wrote it!”

Just because you are getting older doesn't affect your ability to play the piano you know! I'm a mere a 70 and I still . . . . . . can't play the bloody thing!
