Grateful DeadWhen I Paint My Masterpiece

Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble Ancient footprints are everywhere Well you could almost think that you're seein' double On a cold 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, 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 Those mighty kings of the jungle, I could hardly stand to see 'em Well, it sure has been a long hard climb The train wheels runnin' through the back of my memory When I ran on the hilltop following a pack of wild geese Someday, life will be sweet like a rhapsody When I paint my masterpiece So I left Rome and I landed in Brussels On a plane so bumpy that I almost cried Clergymen in uniform, yes and young girl pullin' muscles Well, it should have been a long hard ride Newspapermen eating candy Had to be held down by big police Someday, everything is gonna be different When I paint my masterpiece, that's right Someday, everything is gonna be different When I paint my masterpiece When I paint my masterpiece
