Romeo and Juliet
by Dire Straits



A love struck Romeo
Sing a street suss serenade
Layin' everybody low
With a love song that he made
Finds a street light
Steps out of the shade
Say's something like
You and me Babe, how about it

Juliet say's, "Hey it's Romeo"
Ya nearly gave 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 'cha gonna do about it

Juliet, the dice was 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
And you can fall pretty strangers
And the promises they hold
You promised me everything
You promised me thick and thin
Now ya just say, "Ah Romeo yea, 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"
And there's a place for us
You know the movie song
When ya gonna realize
It was just that the time was wrong, Juliet

I can't do the talks
Like they talk on the T.V.
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 'cept be in love with you

And all I do is miss ya
And the way we used to be
All I do is keep the beat
Of bad company
And all I do is kiss ya
Though the bars of a rhyme
Julie, I'd do the stars with ya, any time

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry
Ya said "I love ya like the stars above"
"I love you till I die"
And there's a place for us
Ya know the movie song
When you gonna realize
It was just that the time was wrong, Juliet

And a love struck Romeo
He sing a street suss serenade
Layin' everybody low
With a love song that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight
Steps out of the shade
Say's something like
You and me Babe, how bout it

You and me Babe, how bout it


From the L.P. "Making Movies", 1980 Lyrics/Music by Mark Knopfler
