When In Rome Submit Correct Lyrics

Where can a sick man go?
When he can't choke down the medicine, the old doc knows
A specialist came to town but he stays at home
Sayin', "No one knows, so I don't", honey, when in Rome

Where can a teacher go?
Wherever she thinks people need the things she knows
Hey, those books you gave us look good on the shelves at home
And they'll burn one in the fireplace, teacher, when in Rome

Grab a blanket, sister, we'll make smoke signals
Bring us some new blood, it feels like we're alone
Grab a blanket, brother so we don't catch cold
From one another, I wonder if we're stuck in Rome

Where can a dead man go?
The question with an answer only dead men know
But I'm going to bet they never really feel at home
If they spent a lifetime learning, how to live in Rome
