My mom sent me this video in a text message. I watched it at the library, but since I have no speakers, I missed the entire spoken part of it. Could someone put a transcript on it for at least the parts we don't see signed?

Yeah if you go to the youtube you will see that it says on the information section of the clip:
Embedding Embedding disabled by request.
Meaning that if you aren't viewing it on youtube.com, it won't play.

I've never seen or heard this song, but it's pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.

Here's a transcript I just did:

BILLY: *knocking banging*
OSCAR: State your name then beat it!
BILLY: I'm Billy Joel.
OSCAR: Billy Joel what? Cat got your last name eh? He-he.
BILLY: Just Billy Joel. And this this Marlee Matlin.
MARLEE: Hi.
OSCAR: Yeah, Hi.
BILLY: We're grouch groupies.
MARLEE: We love grouches.
OSCAR: You love grouches!? Aw yuck!
BILLY: And whenever I throw away an used piano, I give it to a grouch. And this time, you're it.
OSCAR: Oh yeah! Ooh a used piano eh! Huh!
BILLY: And Marlee helped me push this here.
OSCAR: Well, why'd you push it, why didn't you both shove off heh-heh! But leave my piano. Hehehe.
BILLY: Uhm, not yet. Because with a piano, comes a song. A love song.
OSCAR: A love song!? Aw.
BILLY: You hear the song, and then you get the piano.
OSCAR: Aaw I knew there had to be strings attatched.
BILLY: This one's for you Oscar.
MARLEE: Right from the heart.
OSCAR: "Right from the heart"!? Oh I wanna hear this. *sigh*

[1:17]
Billy playing the piano. Alternately modified song of Billy Joel's "Just the way you are"

Don't go changing,
just to please me,
Because being friendly's not your style
..hmm hmm..
Don't want to hear you,
Say "Thank you",


(OSCAR: I won't.)

Cause I would hate to see you smile.

(OSCAR: I never smile!)

Just be grouchy. Really grouchy.
You done it pretty well so far.


(OSCAR: Oh compliments! This is pretty stinky.)

[2:00]
..hmm hmm..
I took the bad times,
I'll take the worst times,
I'll take you just the way you are~


(OSCAR: The way I am, huh? Hah! I’ll change that!)

Don't go trying,
some new fashion,


(OSCAR: How's this!)

I wouldn't like you,
deb-o-nair.
..hmm hmm..
Keep that can you,
Stash your trash in,
Don't even try to comb your hair.


(OSCAR: Just get lost huh!)

Don't try friendly,
con-ver-sation.


(OSCAR: It wasn't friendly!)

Don't change the oil in your car.
..hmm hmm..
We just want someone,
That we can't talk to,
We want you just the way you are.


[3:09]
(OSCAR: Well you cant have me! agh!)

I want to know that you will always be,
The same old Oscar,
That I knew.


(OSCAR: *Deep voice* Is this him?! Hehe)

Oh, please just keep on talking mean,
To me~


It makes me happy
I said "I love you",
and that’s forever.
and this I promise from the heart..
..hmm hmm..
We couldn’t love you,
Any better


[4:02]
(OSCAR: This is the mushiest thing I have ever heard.)

We love you just the way you are~

(song gradually ends)

OSCAR: What are you doing! What the! Hey.. Never hug a grouch! You're kissing me ahhh! Never do that to a grouch. Ugh! You really know how to hurt a grouch.

BILLY: Enjoy the piano!

MARLEE: Have fun!

OSCAR: You don't have to give me the piano! I don't want it!
OSCAR: I heard this piano! Its tuned! Huugh!
OSCAR: Grouches hate love songs. cept. Except this one kinda really made me angry. *sigh*
