Well I see you in the morning
Putting on your pretty clothes
And I watch you do your make-up
Like they do in all those fashion shows
Then you turn to me so that I can see
If you put yourself together right
Then you go away and you're gone all day
But I know you're coming home tonight
And when you're home,
Darling all you've got to be is you
But when in Rome, do as the Romans do

Well it's alright if you're tired
When your day is done
You can see when you look at me,
