LOU REED - Romeo Had Juliette Lyrics

Caught between the twisted starsThe plotted lines the faulty mapThat brought columbus to new yorkBetwixt between the east and westHe calls on her wearing a leather vestThe earth squeals and shudders to a haltA diamond crucifix in his earIs used to help ward off the fearThat he has left his soul in someone's rented carInside his pants he hides a mopTo clean the mess that he has droppedInto the life of lithesome juliette bellAnd romeo wanted julietteAnd juliette wanted romeoAnd romeo wanted julietteAnd juliette wanted romeoRomeo rodriguez squaresHis shoulders and curses jesusRuns a comb through his black pony-tailHe's thinking of his lonely roomThe sink that by his bed gives off a stinkThen smells her perfume in his eyesAnd her voice was like a bellOutside the street were steaming the crackDealers were dreamingOf an uzi someone had just scoredI betcha I could hit that lightWith my one good arm behind my backSays little joey diazBrother give me another toteThose downtown hoods are no damn goodThose italians need a lesson to be taughtThis cop who died in harlemYou think they'd get the warnin'I was dancing when his brains run out on the streetAnd romeo had julietteAnd juliette had her romeoAnd romeo had julietteAnd juliette had her romeoI'll take manhattan in a garbage bagWith latin written on it that saysIt's hard to give a shit these daysManhattan's sinking like a rockInto the filthy hudson what a shockThey wrote a book about itThey said it was like ancient romeThe perfume burned his eyesHolding tightly to her thighsAnd something flickered for a minuteAnd then it vanished and was gone
