Piano lessons on the old baby grand, 
Like the Bearden painting, student and teacher. 
Pachelbel Canon, played by four hands. 
This song could provoke tears on the witness stand
From even the most miserable of creatures.
Piano lessons on the old baby grand.

I close my eyes to listen, time sifts like sand.
She has a way of knowing just how to reach her.
Pachelbel Canon, played by four hands. 
Between here and there, an ampersand 
Connecting parts of life, a double feature. 
Piano lessons on the old baby grand.

Without force or coaxing, the song demands
we take our sadness and impeach her.
Pachelbel Canon, played by four hands. 
The only thing missing is strings, a band, 
Maybe a sermon, but there is no preacher.
Piano lessons on the old baby grand.
Pachelbel Canon, played by four hands.
