A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets of serenade
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade

He's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
Anyway what you gonna do about it?
Juliet the dice were loaded from the start
And I forget I forget the movie song

Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
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 promised me everything you promised me thick and thin

You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?
I can't do the talk like they talk on TV
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you

All I do is keep the beat and bad company
Julie I'd do the stars with you any time
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
There's a place for us you know the movie song

Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Says something like you and me babe how about it?
