Lyric:

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a lovesong 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 gave me a heart attack
He's underneath the window
she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
You shoudn'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 dif'erent streets
They both were streets of shame
Both dirty both mean, yes
and the dream was just the same
And I dream your dream for you
and now your dream is real
how can you look at me
as 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
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 the talk on the TV
and I can't do a love song
like the way its meant to be
I can't do everything
but I'd do anything for you
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 the bad company
All I do is kiss you through the bars of Orion
Julie 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 lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?
How about it?
You and me babe
