What If We Went To Italy Lyrics

What if we went to Italy
A suitcase of books
And one bag a piece for the summer
I don't speak a word of Italian
Except for Campari and soda for two, how much is a lire
Yes, a villa will do and a breeze, in Tuscany please

What if we spent all of our days
Improving our minds, learning new ways to be lazy
It wouldn't be too much of a strain
Relax after breakfast till lunch comes around
Can't wait for dinner, oh, I need to lie down
And refuel, out by the pool

What if the ancients were lazy like us
Too blissed out to paint, to sketch or to sculpt
Just as relaxed as the tower of Pisa
Not ever missing that old Mona Lisa

What if we never got back on the plane
As summer turned colder and then warmer again
Losing all track of the passing of years
Till it no longer mattered how long we'd been here

What if we went to Italy
Maybe next year just you and me for the summer
I still can't speak any Italian
But words are replaced under Siennese skies
By nothing so much as a nod, and a sigh
And a wish to be always like this
