WHEN IN ROME (I DO AS THE ROMANS DO) (Cy Coleman (m) Carolyn Leigh (l) ) as recorded by Vikki Carr with orchestra conducted by Bob Florence 1966 When in Spain, For reasons I don't explain, I remain Enjoying a brew. Don't deplore My fondness for fundador, You know how fundador Can lead to a few, And baby, when in Rome I do as the Romans do! If perchance I'm saying farewell to France, Ah, and romance Drops from the blue, Cher l'amour, I beg of you please endure My taking a brief detour, Er, 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, Why think of me bitterly? You know that I'm true! 'Cept now and then in Rome I get that old yen in Rome, And naturally, when in Rome I do as the Romans do! If I write happily, "Best wishes from Napoli", Don't cable me snappily To tell me we're through! 'Cause once again in Rome, In somebody's den in Rome, Well pussycat, den in Rome I do as the Romans do! Well when in Rome I do as the Romans, disregard the the signs and the omens, When in Rome I do as the Romans do! Ciao now! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2015)
