Romeo and Juliet:
F Dm x4
Verse I:
        [F]A lovestruck Rome[C]o [Dm]sings the streets a serenad[C]e
        [F]Laying everybody [C]lo[Dm]w with a love s[C]ong that he [Bb]made
        [C]Finds a street light steps[Bb] ou[C]t into the sh[F]ade
        Says som[Bb]ething like you and me babe, [C]how about it?
        [F]Juliet says hey it's Romeo,[C] y[Dm]ou nearly gave me a heart [C]at[F]tack
        [F]He's underneath the window[C], [Dm]she's singing hey la my boyf[C]ri[Bb]ends back
        [C]you shouldn't come around he[Bb]re s[C]inging up to people like [F]that
        A[Bb]nyway, what you gonna do a[C]bout it?
Chorus I:
        [F]Juliet [C]the dice was l[Dm]oad[C]ed from the st[Bb]art
        [F]And I b[C]et, and you ex[Dm]plo[C]ded in my hear[Bb]t.
        [F]And I f[C]orget, I forge[Dm]t, the movie son[Bb]g
        [Gm]When you gonna realize it was just t[F]hat the t[Bb]ime wa[C]s wron[Dm]g  J[C]uli[F]et?
Verse II:
Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
Both dirty both mean, yes and even and 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 part of your deal
Well 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, I used to have a scene with him.
Chorus II:
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?
Verse III:
I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv
I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
I cant't do anything but 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.
Repeat Chorus II:
Verse IV:
A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.
Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made.
Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it
Bb C (as long as the lead player can do those tasty fills)
p.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song
out if you are not doing it with a full band.
