[Intro] 
C C G G Am Am G G x4


[Verse 1]
C C G G Am Am G G C C
A A lovestruck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade
G G Am Am F F
Laying everybody low, with a love song that he made
G G F F G G C C
Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade
F F G G
Says something like, "You and me babe, how about it?"


[verse 2]
C C G G Am Am G G C C
Juliet says, "Hey it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack"
G G Am Am F F
He's underneath the window she's singing, "Hey la my boyfriend's back.
G G F F G G C C
You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that.
F F G G
Anyway what you gonna do about it?"


[Chorus]
C C G G Am Am F F
Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
C C G G Am Am F F
And I bet, and you exploded in my heart
C C Am Am F F
And I forget, I forget, the movie song
Dm Dm C C F F C C G G C C
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?


[Interlude]
C C G G Am Am G G x2


[Verse 3]
C C G G Am Am G G C C
Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame
G G Am Am F F
Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same
G G F F G G C C
And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
F F G G
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?


[Verse 4]
C C G G Am Am G G C C
Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold
G G Am Am F F
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
G G F F G G C C
You promised me everything you promised me thick and thin, yeah
F F G G
Now you just say, "oh Romeo, yeah you know I used to have a scene with him"


[Chorus]
C C G G Am Am F F
Juliet, when we made love you used to cry
C C G G Am Am F F
You said, "I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die"
C C Am Am F F
There's a place for us, you know the movie song
Dm Dm C C F F C C G G C C
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?


[Interlude]
C C G G Am Am G G x2


[Verse 5]
C C Am Am G G C C
I can't do the talk, like they talk on TV
G G Am Am F F
And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
G G F F G G C C
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
F F G G
I can't do anything except be in love with you


[Verse 6]
C C Am Am C C
And all I do is miss you, and the way we used to be
Am Am F F
All I do is keep the beat, and bad company
G G F F G G C C
All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
F F G G
Juliet I'd do the stars with you any time


[Chorus]
C C G G Am Am F F
Juliet, when we made love you used to cry
C C G G Am Am F F
You said, "I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die"
C C Am Am F F
There's a place for us, you know the movie song
Dm Dm C C F F C C G G C C
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?
