Romeo & Juliet (Dire Straits)

C Am

A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade

C Am

Laying everybody low with the love song that he made


Finds a streetlight Steps out of the shade, says something like


you and me, babe, how about it?


C Am

Juliet says, "Hey, it's Romeo! you nearly gave me a 'eart attack!"

C Am

He's underneath the window, she's singing "Hey la my boyfriend's back


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


Verse II:

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.


Chorus II:

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?


Verse III:

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:

Verse IV:

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
