Romeo & Juliet (Dire Straits)
A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
Laying everybody low with the love song that he made
G C G
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 'eart attack!"
He's underneath the window, she's singing "Hey la my boyfriend's back
G C G
Shouldn't come around here, singing up at people like that
Anyway, what you gonna do about it?"
C G Am F
Juliet the dice was loaded from the start
C G Am F
And I bet and you exploded into my heart
C F Dm
And I forget, I forget, the movie song
F Am C
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet
Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
Both dirty both mean, yes and even and 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 part of your deal
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, 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 the tv
I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
I can't do anything but 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 anytime.
Repeat Chorus II:
A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.
Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made.
Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it
