Nero fiddles cuz he doesn’t like his job.
Nero fiddles cuz he’s just a little odd.
Nero fiddles cuz it’s his passion deep inside.
Nero fiddles cuz it – it really keeps him alive.

But then the fires blaze.
And Nero stands in a daze.
He doesn’t know what to do.
Picks up that wood and he plays.
And Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

Nero fiddles while the women work all day.
Nero fiddles like the children long to play.
Nero fiddles cuz it’s his passion deep inside.
Nero fiddles and that’s the only reason why.

Just keep me far from this.
I’m just not interested.
They always want something new.
This wood is my only friend.
But Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

Hey Nero where’s the empire that you had.
Listen Nero I’m gonna help you understand.
Foolish Nero you can’t play that thing all day.
People suffer from the choices that you make.
