1.                              A lovestruck Romeo     sings the streets a serenade,

                                        G-Am                             F

    laying everybody low          with a love song that he made.

G                                F-G                                 C                    

    Finds a street light,        steps out into the shade,

                                        F                                           G

    says something like :     You and me babe, how about it?  

C                                              G-Am                                                         -G-C

    Juliet says : Hey it's Romeo,          you nearly gave me a heart attack !

                                                       G     Am                            F                

    He's underneath the window, she's singing : Hey la, my boyfriends back,

F-G                                                     F  G                                     C

      you shouldn't come around here     singing up to people like that.

F                                                   G                 

    Anyway, what you gonna do about it?

 

     C  - G                       Am                       F

Juliet        the dice was loaded from the start,

            C   - G                    Am                F

and I bet,       and you exploded in my heart.

                 C           F    Am                      F

And I forget, I forget,            the movie song,

   Dm                                          F                                 Am  -G-C        -F-C-FC

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong,     Juliet?

 

                                            G    -Am                                                       -G-C

2. Come up on different streets,        they`re both the streets of shame,

                                G     - Am                                         F

    both dirty, both mean,         yes, and the dream was just the same.

G                                                         F - G                                         C 

    And I dreamed your dream for you           and now your dream is real.

F                                                           G

    How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals.

                             C                                G-Am                                          G -C

    Well, you can fall for chains of silver,          you can fall for chains of gold.

                                                       G-Am                              F           

    you can fall for pretty strangers           and the promise that they hold

F-G                                                 F-G                                 C

     You promised me everything,      you promised me thick and thin.

F                                                                     G                 

 Now you just say:Oh Romeo, you know I used to have a scene with him.

 

 

 

       C  - G                             Am                           F

Juliet,      when we made love you used to cry,

                       C                              G                        Am                    F       

you said, I love you like the stars above,  I'll love you till I die.

    G              C            F              Am                        F

There's a place for us, you know the movie song.

   Dm                                                  F                                       Am  -G      C

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong,  Juliet?

 

    F-C-F-C                                      Am                                         -G-C

3.                     I can't do the talk,     like they talk on the TV,

                                          G - Am                               F

    I can't do a love song,           like the way it's meant to be.

G                                       F        G                          C 

    I can't do everything, but I'd do anything for you.

F                                                     G

    I cant't do anything except be in love with you.

C                                          G-Am                                                - G  - C

    And all I do is miss you          and the way we used to be,

                                             G-Am                  F           

    all I do is keep the beat          and bad company.

F-G                                 F-G                                        C

       All I do is kiss you        through the bars of a rhyme

F                                                      G                 

    Juliet I'd do the stars with you      anytime.    + CHORUS + F-C-F-C

 

    F-C-a-F-C                                        - Am                                          G    -  C

4.                    A love struck Romeo,       sings the streets a serenade.

                                                         G - Am                               F

    Now he's laying everybody low,          with a love song that he made.

G                                       F             -G                                 C

    Finds a convenient street light,      steps out of the shade,

                                         F                                G

    says something like :    You and me, babe,    how about it ?

 

    F - G - F - G - F - G                           F - G - F - G   ...

                                      How about it ?
