Bob Dylan

Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
 Ancient footprints are everywhere
 You can almost think that you're seein' double
 On a cord, dark night on the Spanish Stairs
 Got to hurry on back to my hotel room 
 Where I've got me a date with Botticelli's niece
 She promised that she'd be right there with me
 When I paint my masterpiece
Oh, the hours I've spent inside the Coliseum
Dodging lions and wastin' time
Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle
I could hardly stand to see 'em
Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb
Train wheels runnin' through the back of my memory
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 inside
Newspapermen eating candy had to be held down by big police Someday,
everything is gonna be different
 When I paint my masterpiece   
(from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2, done around 1971)
