I am a big fan of Billy Joel’s music.  He is able to tell a story with each song he writes and performs, and does so in a way that is catchy.  One of my all-time favorite songs is Piano Man.  So I felt like I could tell the story of what I do, and do so in a way that pays tribute to one of the all-time song-writers.   So below is my Wierd Al Yankovich-style parody, that I have named Planning Man (to the music of Piano Man):

 

It’s six o’clock on a Thursday

The regular crowd shuffles in

They are all here for our Seminar

And I am ready to begin

 

I hear, “What can we expect to learn tonight?

I think that there’s nothing much to do.

You see I don’t have all that much

Can you tell me if that’s really true?

 

La la la, did di da, la la did di da, la dum

 

I’m gonna sing you a song,

I’m the Planning Man

I’ll sing you a song tonight

You all came here for Information

And you’ll head home feelin’ alright

 

Now we’re here to talk about your estate

To see what it all entails

It’s your cash and home

And all that you own

Plan so it does not fail

 

I hear, “Jim, I believe I don’t need your help

No matter what you say

What I have is quite simple

I won’t have it any other way”

 

Oh, La la la, did di da, la la did di da, la dum

 

 

And some of you have a plan in place

And it may sound really right

But when you dig into the nuts & bolts

You may not fall asleep tonight

 

You see there are things lurking out there

That you may not be aware

Lawsuits, Divorce and Medicaid

Do you think the Government cares?!?!

 

I’m gonna sing you a song,

I’m the Planning Man

I’ll sing you a song tonight

You all came here for Information

And you’ll head home feelin’ alright

 

You’re a pretty good crowd for Thursday

And I hope you took it all in

Cause I shared a lot of information

Forgetting it would be a sin

 

And it’s time to get your plan in place

It’s time when you know that you can

If it’s too late, there not much to do

Though they call me the Planning Man

 

Oh, La la la, did di da, la la did di da, la dum

 

I sang you a song,

I’m the Planning Man

I sang this song tonight

I gave you a bunch of Information

So Plan with me and you’ll be alright.

 

Be on watch for the music video.  And look for an upcoming seminar in your area.
