A love struck Romeo, sings a streetsus serenade
Layin' everybody low, with a lovesong that he made
Find the streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?"

Juliet says, "Hey it's Romeo, you nearly give 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 was 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 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 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, yea
And you just say, "Oh Romeo, yea, 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 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, bad company
All I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with, any time"

"Oh 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"

And a lovestruck Romeo, sings a streetsus serenade
Layin' everybody low, with a lovesong that he made
Find a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?
You and me, babe, how about it?"
