"Romeo and Juliet [Stereo]" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
A lovestruck Romeo got a 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 the movie song
When you wanna realise it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet

We come up on different streets they both were streets of shame
Both dirty, both mean, and the dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and your dream is real
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals

And 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, yeah you promised me think and thin
Now you just says 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, said I'll love you, baby, 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 don't do the talk, no, like they're talking on the 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
And all I do is keep the beat and bad company
And all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you, baby any time

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above, I said I'll love you, baby till I die
And there's a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet

Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says, you and me babe, how about it

Yeah, say you and me babe, how about it
