Romeo and Juliet (Dire Straits)

A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade, laying everybody low with a love song that he made, finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade, says something like, “You and me babe — how ’bout it?”.

Juliet says, “Hey it’s Romeo, you nearly gimme 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 was loaded from the start, and I bet, then 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 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 ’til 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 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, the bad company, all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme, 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 ’til 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 a streetsuss serenade, laying everybody low with a love song that he made, find a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade, and says something like, “You and me babe — how ’bout it?”.

“You and me babe — how about it?”…..
