Verse I:
        C                G Am                         G C
        A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
        C                G Am             G           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
        C                         G Am                          G F
        He's underneath the window, she's singing hey la my boyfriends back
        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?

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

        C                G Am                                        G C
        Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
        C                G Am                        G                F
        Both dirty both mean, yes and even and 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 part of your deal
        C                        G Am                                G C
        Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold.
        C                        G Am                        G F
        you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
        G                        F G                        C
        You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah
                F                                        G
        Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.

Chorus II:
        C        G           Am G                    F
        Juliet when we made love you used to cry
        C            G                Am G                        F
        you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
        C            G                Am                F
        There's a place for us, you know the movie song
        Dm                                C           F   G      Am G    C

Verse III:
        C                G Am                        G C
        I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv
        C                G Am                        G C
        I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
        G                   F G                        C
        I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
                      F                        G
        I cant't do anything but be in love with you.

        C                G Am                        G C
        And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
        C                G Am                G F
        All I do is keep the beat and bad company.
        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.

Repeat Chorus II:

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

        C                G Am                          G C
        A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.
        C                        G Am               G            F
        Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made.
        G                           F G                        C
        Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
                F                                G
