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
Saying 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 warm in the fireplace teacher
When in Rome

Grab a blanket sister
We'll make smoke signals
Bring in 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?
A question with an answer only dead men know
But I'm gonna bet they never really feel at home
It they spent a lifetime learning how to live in Rome
