The Band When I Paint My Masterpiece Lyrics

Last updated: 02/22/2011 10:00:00 AM

D A D A E
(no chord) A D A
Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble,
E A D
ancient footprints are everywhere.
A D A
You could almost think that your seeing double,
E A
On the cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs.
E A
Gotta hurry on back to my hotel room,
E A D
Where I got me a date with a pretty little girl from Greece.
A D A
She promised she'd be there with me,
E A
When I paint my masterpiece.
D A D A E
(no chord) A D A
Oh, the hours we spent, inside the Coliseum.
E A
Dodging lions, and a-wasting time,
D A D A
oh those mighty kings of the jungle, I could hardly stand to see'em
E A
Yes it sure has been a long, hard drive.
E A
Train wheels a-running thru the back of my memory,
E A D
When I ran on a hilltop following a pack of wild geese,
A D A
Someday everything is gonna sound like a rhapsody
E A
When I paint my masterpiece.
Am C#m
Sailing round the world in a dirty gondola,
D Bb E D C#m D E
Oh to be back in the land of, Coca-cola.
D A D A
Well I left Rome, and landed in Brussels,
E A
On a plane ride so BUMPY that I almost cried,
D A D A
Clergy men in uniform, and young girls pulling mussels,
E A
Everyone was there to greet me when I stepped inside,
E A
Newspaper men eating candy,
E A D
Had to be held down by big police.
A D A E A
Someday, everything's gonna be different, When I paint my masterpiece.
