Piano Man by Billy Joel is featured in Movin' Out, the sixth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Blaine with Spotlight Diner Staff. 

Blaine has his NYADA auditions very soon and to prepare, Kurt decides to drag him to practice and sing in the Spotlight Diner. Despite Blaine's pleas not to, he gives in and proceeds to the stage where the piano is. Kurt welcomes Blaine to the customers of Spotlight Diner and tells them that they will know him as soon as he gets onto Broadway. Blaine starts the piano as he sings Piano Man with Sam playing the harmonica. This scene mirrors how Billy Joel sang songs and played the piano at Diners to receive money to pay rent. The Spotlight Diner staff light candles as Rachel sits next to Sam to watch Blaine perform. The candles are passed to the staff as they walk around, dancing with the candles in the air. At the end of the performance, the audience applauds Blaine.

Lyrics

Blaine:
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin

He says "Son can you play me a memory?"
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes

Blaine with Diner Patrons:
La la la de de da
La la de de da da dum

Blaine:
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

The piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say "Man, what are you doin' here?" Oh

Blaine with Diner Patrons:
La la la de de da
La la de de da da dum

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright
