* 8-bar intro
* Verse 1 A love-struck Romeo sings a streetside serenade,
Laying everybody low with a lovesong 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 a heart attack."
He's underneath the window.
She's singing, "Hey la, my boyfriend's back."
You shoudln't come around here, singing up to people like that.
Anyway, what you gonna do about it?

* Chorus 1 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 realise it was just that the time was wrong?

* 4-bar break
* Verse 2 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 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."

* Chorus 2 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 realise it was just that the time was wrong? Juliet.

* 4-bar break
* Verse 3 I can't do the talk like they talk on T.V,
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 you 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 a rhyme.
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you anytime.
