    Lyrics

    In a little honky-tonky village in Texas
    There's a guy who plays the best piano by far
    He can play piano any way that you like it
    But the way he likes to play is eight to the bar
    When he plays, it's a ball
    He's the daddy of them all

    The people gather around when he gets on the stand
    Then when he plays, he gets a hand
    The rhythm he beats puts the cats in a trance
    Nobody there bothers to dance
    But when he plays with the bass and guitar
    They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

    A-plink, a-plank, a-plink plank, plink plank
    A-plunkin' on the keys
    A-riff, a-raff, a-riff raff, riff raff
    A-riffin' out with ease
    And when he plays with the bass and guitar
    They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

    He plays a boogie, he plays eight to the bar
    A boogie-woogie, that is the way he likes to play on his piano
    And we all know
    That when he plays he puts them all in a trance
    The cats all holler "Hooray"
    You'll hear them say, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

    In a little honky-tonky village in Texas
    There's a guy who plays the best piano by far
    When he plays with the bass and guitar
    They holler, "Beat me up Daddy, beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

    The people gather around when he gets up on the stand
    Then when he plays, he gets a hand
    The rhythm that he plays puts the cats in a trance
    Nobody there ever bothers to dance
    But when he plays with the bass and guitar
    They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

    A-plink plink, a-plank plank, a-plink plank, plink plank
    A-plunkin' on the keys
    A-riff riff, a-raff raff, a-riff raff, riff raff
    A-riffin' out with ease
    But when he plays with the bass and guitar
    They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"
