About Romeo

"Romeo" was the second single by punk rock band Wipers. Along with B-side "No Solution", it was recorded during the Youth of America sessions in a small studio in Vancouver, Washington. After deciding it did not fit with the idea behind the Youth of America album, it was released as a 7" single on leader Greg Sage's own Trap Records. Both the "Romeo" single and Youth of America album featured members of Stiphnoyds, a band who also recorded on Trap. The DeShazer brothers, Craig and Steve, and Bryan Wilson played trombones and trumpet on the track, while Brad Naish played drums. "Romeo" was later rerecorded for 1983 Wipers album Over the Edge. 


 Struggling with Romeo? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Walks the city at night
The tall dark buildings cast a ghostly shadow in his burning eyes
Oh Romeo...
Roam Romeo...
Romeo roam...
Roam romeo...
Cruises the street's at night
Under his feet lay the remains of all the cruisers
Before him
When out of the alley comes these green laser eyes

Saying come closer...come closer
He's still alone...
Oh Romeo...
Roam Romeo...
Romeo roam...
Around the corner there's nothing there
Cause there's no Juliet!
