When In Rome (I Do As The Romans Do)

Play

When on foreign shores I am
Very truly yours I am
But if inclined to play I am
Sweetheart, that's the way I am

When in Spain
For reasons I don't explain
I remain enjoying a brew
Don't deplore
My fondness for fundador
You know how a fundador
Can lead to a few
And baby when in Rome
I do as the Romans do

If per chance
I'm saying farewell to France
And romance
Drops in from the blue
Cherchez l'amour
I beg of you please endure
My taking a brief detour
With somebody new
It's just that when in Rome
I do as the Romans do

And though from Italy
I lied to you prettily
Oh don't think of me bitterly
But know that I'm true
Except now and then in Rome
I get that old yearn in Rome
And naturally when in Rome
I do as the Romans do

E molto difficile
Resistere agli uomini di Italia
Per esempio, per esempio i biondi
I biondi di Firenze, di Venezia
E i bruni di Palermo, di Milano
You know what I mean?

If I write happily
Best wishes from Napoli
Don't cable me snappily
To tell me we're through

'Cause I'm once again in Rome
In somebody's den in Rome
Well honey, but when in Rome
I do as the Romans do
So just disregard
The signs and the omens
When in Rome
I do as the Romans do
Veni, vidi, vince!
