  • A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets of serenade
    Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
    Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?

    Juliet says hey it's Romeo you nearly gimme 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 you gonna do about it?

    Juliet the dice were 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 booth 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
    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 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 and bad company
    All I do is kiss you through the bars of Orion
    Julie I'd do the stars with you 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
    When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

    A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets of serenade
    Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
    Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?
