Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet
(Mark Knopfler)

A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss 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 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 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
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
     And 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 do 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 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 till I die
     And 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 lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it
