LOU REED - Romeo Had Juliette

rate me

Caught between the twisted stars<br>The plotted lines the faulty map<br>That brought columbus to new york<br>Betwixt between the east and west<br>He calls on her wearing a leather vest<br>The earth squeals and shudders to a halt<br>A diamond crucifix in his ear<br>Is used to help ward off the fear<br>That he has left his soul in someone's rented car<br>Inside his pants he hides a mop<br>To clean the mess that he has dropped<br>Into the life of lithesome juliette bell<br><br>And romeo wanted juliette<br>And juliette wanted romeo<br>And romeo wanted juliette<br>And juliette wanted romeo<br><br>Romeo rodriguez squares<br>His shoulders and curses jesus<br>Runs a comb through his black pony-tail<br>He's thinking of his lonely room<br>The sink that by his bed gives off a stink<br>Then smells her perfume in his eyes<br>And her voice was like a bell<br><br>Outside the street were steaming the crack<br>Dealers were dreaming<br>Of an uzi someone had just scored<br>I betcha I could hit that light<br>With my one good arm behind my back<br>Says little joey diaz<br>Brother give me another tote<br>Those downtown hoods are no damn good<br>Those italians need a lesson to be taught<br>This cop who died in harlem<br>You think they'd get the warnin'<br>I was dancing when his brains run out on the street<br><br>And romeo had juliette<br>And juliette had her romeo<br>And romeo had juliette<br>And juliette had her romeo<br><br>I'll take manhattan in a garbage bag<br>With latin written on it that says<br>It's hard to give a shit these days<br>Manhattan's sinking like a rock<br>Into the filthy hudson what a shock<br>They wrote a book about it<br>They said it was like ancient rome<br><br>The perfume burned his eyes<br>Holding tightly to her thighs<br>And something flickered for a minute<br>And then it vanished and was gone
