Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits

A love struck Romeo, sings a streetsuss serenade,
Laying everybody low, with a love song that he made
Finds a street light, 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 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 you gonna do about it?

Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start,
And I bet, and you exploded into my heart,
And I forget, I forget, the movie song
When you gonna realize, it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

Came 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, yeah
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 talks, like they talk on the TV
And I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be
I can't do everything, but I'll do anything for you
I can't do anything 'cept 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
And all I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet I'd do the stars with you, anytime

Ah 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 love struck Romeo, sings a streetsuss serenade,
Laying everybody 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?'
