(Just Like) Romeo and Juliet – The Reflections

This song has a killer twist to it. Whenever a guy is laying out his rap to a girl and mentioning Romeo and Juliet, you’re always thinking that he means that he and his mate will have a love so intense that it will match the greatest lovers in history, but by the end of this number he’s talking about how he can’t find a job, and you remember they both wound up dead before their wedding day.

Got a little somethin’ I wanna do
Gonna buy (gonna buy) somethin’ I could ride in
A-Take my girl (take my girl) datin’ at the drive-in
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 a catalog
Gonna show (gonna show) how much I love
Let her know (let her know) one way or the other
Our love’s gonna be written down in history
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet

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

Just Like Romeo and Juliet
Just Like Romeo and Juliet
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, all right, now, I’m speculatin’
Wonder what tomorrow’s gonna really bring
If I don’t (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

One Response to “(Just like) Romeo and Juliet”

  1. Reminds me of another song with romeo and juliet in the lyrics:

    All our times have come
    Here but now they’re gone
    Seasons don’t fear the reaper
    Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are
    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper
    Baby take my hand…don’t fear the reaper
    We’ll be able to fly…don’t fear the reaper
    Baby I’m your man…

    Valentine is done
    Here but now they’re gone
    Romeo and Juliet
    Are together in eternity…Romeo and Juliet
    40,000 men and women everyday…Like Romeo and Juliet
    40,000 men and women everyday…Redefine happiness
    Another 40,000 coming everyday…We can be like they are
    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper
    Baby take my hand…don’t fear the reaper
    We’ll be able to fly…don’t fear the reaper
    Baby I’m your man…

    Love of two is one
    Here but now they’re gone
    Came the last night of sadness
    And it was clear she couldn’t go on
    Then the door was open and the wind appeared
    The candles blew then disappeared
    The curtains flew then he appeared…saying don’t be afraid
    Come on baby…and she had no fear
    And she ran to him…then they started to fly
    They looked backward and said goodby…she had become like they are
    She had taken his hand…she had become like they are
    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper
