|Lyrics:||Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble,|
Ancient footprints are everywhere.
almost think that you're seein' double
On a cold dark night on the Spanish
Got to hurry on back to my hotel room,
Where I've got me a date with
She promised that she'd be right there with me
When I paint my
Oh, the hours I've spent inside the Coliseum,
Dodging lions and wastin'
Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle,
I could hardly stand to see 'em,
sure has been a long hard climb.
Train wheels runnin' thru the back of my
When I ran on the hilltop following a pack of wild geese.
Someday, everything is
gonna be smooth like a rhapsody,
When I paint my masterpiece.
Sailin' 'round the
world in a dirty gondola,
Oh, to be back in the land of Coca-Cola!
I left Rome and
landed in Brussels,
On a plane ride so bumpy that I almost cried.
Clergymen in uniform and
young girls pullin' muscles,
Everyone was there to greet me when I stepped
Newspapermen eating candy
Had to be held down by big police.
everything is gonna be diff'rent
When I paint my masterpiece
