Billy Joel

When in Rome

 

 

Well I see you in the morning

Putting on your pretty clothes

And I watch you do your makeup

LIke they do in all those fashion shows

Then you turn to me so that I can see

If you put yourself together right

Then you go away and you're gone all day

But I know you're coming home tonight

And when you're home, darling all you've got to be is you

But when in Rome, do as the Romans do

 

Well it's alright if you're tired when your day is done

You can see when you look at me, you're not the only one

It's a cold, cruel world for a working girl

But you can't let them see you cry

It's a fact of life, now man and wife

Work full time to just get by

And when we're home all it's gonna be is me and you

But when in Rome, do as the Romans do

 

I've done some strange thngs I never thought I'd do before

But if the strain brings happiness, more or less...

More or less...

 

Then I don't mind masquerading with all those other fools

I don't mind the games I'm playing,

Because I've learned the rules

And when tims are tough, I've got just enough

If you're standing right by my side

Darling more and more I get hungry for

All the ways you keep me satisfied

On our own there ain't nothing we can't get through

But when in Rome, do as the Romans do

 

Then I don't mind masquerading with all those other fools

I don't mind the gmes I'm playing,

Because I've learned the rules

It doesn't matter when we're home, all alone

Al we've got to be is me and you

On our own there ain't nothing that we can't get through

But when in Rome, do as the Romans do

 

Swing that hammer and break that stone

Push those buttons and answer that phone

Coffee in the morning and martinis at night

Everybody's working up a big appetite

Do as the Romans do...
