Ariana Grande - Vienna Lyrics

Slow down you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart then tell me
Why are you still so afraid? (mmmmm)

Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and only
So many hours in a day (Ay)

But you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want
Or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through (Oooh)
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be before your time
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight (tonight)

Too bad, but it's the life you lead
You're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you're wrong
You know you can't always see when you're right (you're right)

You got your passion, you got your pride
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you crazy child
And take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while
It's alright, you can afford to lose a day or two (Oooh)
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

And you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through
Why don't you realize... Vienna waits for you?

When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

    im interested to hear what she sounds now singing this song. her voice has changed a lot, and i think it will be a lot more different.

  4. Marjorie Cohn

    Billy Joel

  5. Pierfrancesco Valbusa

    It's good cover but billy joel, wow, billy joel is a fuckin master

  6. Montravius Daniel

    I think she should play Billy Joel’s wife in a musical drama biopic film about his life and career called “PianoMan” with Ben Platt as the rock singer. Distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing’s Columbia 🗽 Pictures.
    Who else agrees with me?

  7. Madelyn H

    I forgot about these! I used to love listening to Ariana’s covers back when she was on victorious

  8. Mignonne

    Telling an inactive account to change the title? I don’t think that’s going to happen

  27. Xxyz Xxyz

    I usually get annoyed of Ariana's voice after a while, but she sounds really beautiful here (and yes, I know it's a cover of Billy Joel before anyone feels the need to inform me)

  28. Julien

    Ben Platt's version of the song is so much better

    No Thanks

    Billy Joels is the best though

    Can someone plz make a karaoke version of this with just the piano in the background? I will pay you if you make it for me. I really want to sing this downtown at a bar and I like this version better than the original.

  43. vienna kukadia


  44. Makayla Singleton

    i wish this was on itunes tbh

  45. Zara DenHeld

    PEOPLE KNOW THAT THIS IS JUST A COVER, ARIANA DIDNT WROTE THIS 😂 this song is vienna by Billy Joel. 💖

  46. Lykke Marie

    This is a fkn Billy Joel song. NOT an Ariana Grande song.

  47. Megan Reed

    I really expected to hate this. Let's just say... I didn't hate it. At all.

  48. Hershey Bars

    You may disagree but no ones going to sing this better than billy Joel

  49. Regislane Morais


  50. Paddy Orourke

    I'm surprised. Never really listened to her. But, sorry, she's got that typical singing talent, good.....nowhere near great. She's TOAST! Hahahahahahaha

    Evil Emo Elmo

    Paddy Orourke ...she’s toast? TOAST??? Bruh she’s one of the most well known pop stars on the mothersucking planet right now... She’s rich and thriving dawg... she could literally buy us both, your mom and your houseplant, sell us to a bunch of foreigners and then buy us back, hunny bunny

  51. Hailie Myshell

    This cover is just wow

  52. RomanRepublic753BC

    Billy Joel was a musical genius

  53. Alex Mahr

    This is one of my favorite billy Joel songs

  54. Pickel Rick

    I heard this song before

  55. John Waters

    Wow, so happy that Ariana did this!! This song is so beautiful!!!

  56. HillBilly Gaming

    This is ass compared to the real song

  57. Brenton Thrasher

    It's sad that her covers of old songs are so much better than her real songs.

  58. Ahsin Nation

    O always cry because it my name but mine is spelled veyenna but she says it the same way I'm crying

  59. Lidiane Cunha

    Essa música me faz chorar

  60. 96hatt

    Eww she sounds like a slut bag

  61. Maja 21

    I live in Vienna

  62. Carley Herlihy

  63. Reaga n

    no offense to her but I like some of her songs but she kind of ruined this song for me..

  64. pandalizm

    I live in Vienna..

  65. Maia Cruscov

    I love that she wasnt using auto tune here😍

  66. Olivia Hickly

    IM SORRY BUT..... no. Just no. Billy Joel is a god and Ariana Ghandi is just a sheer mortal in his presence. She is nothing. Nothing. She has no passion in her voice. Plz listen to the ORIGINAL BY BILLY. He’s better. Thank you and goodbye.

    millays baby carli

    Olivia Hickly if you came just to hate, your honestly a piece of shit. thank u next bitch

  67. Nicole A

    Love this Cover 💙💙 The Lyrics to this song are amazing

  68. Nilda Martinez Ruiz

    "You can get what you want or you can just get old" OMG, that's true! When will we learn it?

  69. Nilda Martinez Ruiz

    Great version of Billy Joel's song!!

  70. Hunter Thomas

    Love ❤💜❤💜❤💜❤

  71. Megan Waddle

    I really love billy and love this song and she does this so beautifully. But Ariana’s new music is not my cup of tea 🤦🏻‍♀️

  72. Jayde Hall

    Pretty sure lots of people that are watching this know it is Billy Joel's song. You all are just acting like you are edgy or superior, and no one knows what you do because you are a true music connoisseur. Please. Get over it. This is a very obscure cover, most people probably got here through the original or it pops up right under this one.

  73. Pop and Coke

    Only Billy Joel was the best sorry but it’s true

  74. Apoorva Tadepalli

    I feel like Ariana Grande's pop songs don't do her voice justice. In this song, you can hear the full range of her voice. She should do more covers like this.

    João Vitor Andrade

    This is not what the people want, if she do somethin like this will obviously be a flop

    Alli Pallinger

    i think the pop song suit her voice, but songs like this, you can just hear the soul in it. in this song you can hear her range.

    Carlos Asan

    I love all Ari’s music but I love when she showcases her talent like this

  75. rach3000 rach3000

    This is so beautiful 😻😍🙏❤️

  76. Vienna Page

    my names vienna

  77. Sophia L

    her new music is trash, this is beautiful


    Maybe so.. but you do know that this is a Billy Joel song, right?

    Sophia L

    @Mees Yes yes of course. I just meant her new music doesn't exemplify how beautiful her voice is like this does or like her old music.

  78. kip kslsbfbffb

    omg i life in vienna🥰❤😱(i know this song is not from ariana but it still is very cool that she made a cover of it)

  79. jeffrey temkin

    Quite pleasantly surprised!

  80. Mariah Wong

    This isn't Ariana Grande. It's Jennifer Husen.

  81. Mythili K

    I'm getting really strong Ravenclaw vibes

  82. Occasionally Emo

    2019 and I miss this era

  83. Meme Man

    Any credit to The Piano Man himself? I mean this is a song after Billy Joel after all...

  84. Mariana Ferraz

    Essa mulher vai me matar um dia

  85. Ich am da boss

    2019 pretty sure no one

    Panchito Anguiano

    Naw fam me

  86. Kelly Vee

    This version and the original sung by Mr Billy Joel are the only ones I play on my phone💝

  87. Sarah Joy Ficks

    2019? I bet no one

  88. Upscale Avenue

    Her voice was so much fuller and more powerful here. I wish she still sang like this. She was so talented.

    João Vitor Andrade

    Was? She still talented

    Upscale Avenue

    @João Vitor Andrade She's still a talented singer, sure, but the quality of her voice is not nearly as good as when she was younger.

    keyshawn #IsSnatchedAsf

    @Upscale Avenue actually she has more power now her voice is much more unique now and has a lot of beauty to it she doesn't have to do a lot to outshine every other singer in the industry.

  89. happy5808

    I love this cover. I always come back to this

  90. Abdullah Naseer

    Who needs a calendar when we got these fucking nolifers in the comment section

  91. Bluewolfeevee

    I honestly think Billy Joel sang it way better.

  92. Patrick Pilchowski

    This cover is the only one by her I will probably actually listen to again.

  93. nctea bananamilk

    I vandalize the lyrics of this song on my room
