DIRE STRAITS


Romeo & Juliet Lyrics

a love-struck romeo
sings a streetsuss serenade
laying everybody low
with a lovesong that he made
finds a streelight
steps out of the shade
sez 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 shouldn't come around here singing up to people like that
anyway..... what ya 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 realise 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?

when 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
said i love you like the stars abouve i'll love you till i die
there's a place for us you know the movie song
whne you gonna realise 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... bad company
all i do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
juliet you give the stars a living 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
whne you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet?

a lovestruck romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
finds a convinient streelight steps out of the shade
says something like you and me babe how about it?

how about it
