VERSE 1
G          G6  G    G6  G
What if we went to Italy
G             G6    G
A suitcase of books
G             G6  G            C   C6 C
And one bag a piece for the summer
C               C6  C     G   G6 G
I don't speak a word of Italian
  D
Except for Campari and soda for two, how much is a lire
D                          C  C6              G  G6 G
Yes, a villa will do and a breeze, in Tuscany please
 
 
VERSE 2
G          G6  G            G6  G
What if we spent all of our days
G             G6  G               G6  G        C  C6 C
Improving our minds, learning new ways to be lazy
C                  C6   C     G    G6 G
It wouldn't be too much of a strain
  D
Relax after breakfast till lunch comes around
D
Can't wait for dinner, oh, I need to lie down
D     C  C6 C C6 C         G  G6 G
And refuel,    out by the pool
 
 
VERSE 3
C                         D
What if the ancients were lazy like us
    Bm                       Em
Too blissed out to paint, to sketch or to sculpt
Am                     D7
Just as relaxed as the tower of Pisa
Em                    G
Not ever missing that old Mona Lisa
 
 
VERSE 4
C                    D
What if we never got back on the plane
   Bm                            Em
As summer turned colder and then warmer again
Am                      D7
Losing all track of the passing of years
D7      C                      D
Till it no longer mattered how long we'd been here
 
C  D  Bm  Em Am D C D
 
 
VERSE 5
G          G6  G    G6  G
What if we went to Italy
G            G6  G            G6  G           C  C6 C
Maybe next year   just you and me   for the summer
C                  C6 C  G   G6 G
I still can't speak any Italian
    D
But words are replaced under Siennese skies
D
By nothing so much as a nod, and a sigh
D     C  C6 C C6 C                    G
And a wish      to be always like this
