(Ooh, ooh, oop)

Finding a job tomorrow morning
Got a little something I wanna do
Gonna buy (gonna buy) something I can ride in

A-take my girl datin' at the drive-in (take my girl)
Our love's gonna be written down in history
A-just like Romeo and Juliet

I'm gonna buy her pretty presents
Just like the ones in the catalog
Gonna show (gonna show) how much I lover her

Let her know that one way or the other (let her know)
Our love's gonna be written down in history
A-just like Romeo and Juliet

(Ooh, ooh, oop)
(Doo, doot, doot, doo-doop)

Just like Romeo and Juliet
A-just like Romeo and Juliet
A-just like Romeo and Juliet
Just like Romeo and Juliet

Talk about love and romance
Just wait 'til I get myself straight
I'm gonna put Romeo's fame right smack-dab on a date, ah

Alright now I'm speculatin'
Wonder what tomorrow's gonna really bring
Hey if I don't find work tomorrow
It's gonna be (gonna be) heartaches 'n' sorrow
Our love's gonna be destroyed like a tragedy
Just like Romeo and Juliet

(Ooh, ooh, oop)
(Doo, doot, doot, doo-doop)

Just like Romeo and Juliet
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet
(Just like Romeo and Juliet)
(Just like Romeo and)

    My OpinionThis is a fun song. The comparison of the singer's love for his girlfriend and his plans to woo her to the play "Romeo and Juliet" is a bit forced. The only thing the singer is really trying to say is that his love is as HUGE and IMPORTANT as Romeo's was for Juliet. Other than that there are no parallels to the NON-historical story of Romeo and Juliet.

    The almost scary aspect of the song is the references to the tragedy "like Romeo and Juliet" that will result if the singer cannot get a job. Romeo and Juliet DIED because of a misunderstanding. The singer of this song seems willing to kill himself and his girlfriend if he can't buy a stupid car! Now, THAT would be a tragedy!!
