A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade Laying everybody low with a love song that he made Finds a streetlight steps out of the shade Says something like, you and me babe, how about it? Juliet says, hey it's Romeo, you nearly gimme me a heart attack He's underneath the window, she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that Anyway what you gonna do about it? Juliet, the dice were loaded from the start And I bet and you exploded in my heart And I forget, I forget the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet? Come up on different streets they both were streets of shame Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals? Well you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold You promised me everything you promised me thick and thin, yeah Now you just say oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him Juliet, when we made love you used to cry You said, I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die There's a place for us, you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet? I can't do the talk like they talk on TV And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be I can't do everything, but I'd do anything for you I can't do anything except be in love with you And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be All I do is keep the beat and bad company All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme Juliet I'd do the stars with you any time Juliet, when we made love you used to cry You said, I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die There's a place for us, you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet? A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade Laying everybody low with a love song that he made Finds a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade Says something like, you and me babe, how about it?
