Romeo and Juliet

Lyrics

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets of serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?

Another great song from DS...beautif u l ! ! !
Lyrics are close but what's important is the tear in your eye cause everyone's had a Juliet somewhere in the past or present. Appreciate.

The lyrics are incorrect. Beautiful song, people should know the proper words

I had forgotten about this song! It's making me tear up right now. What a perfectly beautiful song.

Agree with IG cover comment - Amy Ray 'kills it' on this.
You and me babe how bout it
How bout it you and me babe chills central.
This song is incredible.
Snap that finger on cue.
I think MK developed his songwriting skills long before he met Dylan.
One of my favorites! For those who thought it sounded like Dylan, I thought so too when I first heard it. Turns out MK played guitar for Dylan so probably was influenced in terms of lyrics writing, and their voices are pretty similar.
My favorite song in the world!!! I actually got to see Mark Knopfler a few years back at Ruth Eckerd Hall...Magni f i c a n t ! ! ! !

Cliff Eberhardt's cover was the first version of this song I ever heard. He does a beautiful job with it - check it out. Love this one too, especially the guitar.
I like it
I notice that the songs I like most are the ones from my late teens and early 20's; my formative growing up period. Funny how nobody writes songs like that anymore.

LOVED M.K. FROM THE BEGINNING ALWAYS WILL ............ . . . . . . . .

@ Morag: Oooh, i'm so glad it's not just me who LOVES this song--and i agree wholehearted l y that MK plays some erotic guitar! :)
GODDD I LOVE THIS SONG...not so simple as it sounds...and that guitar? MK plays the most EROTIC guitar.
Oh Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him
art......... . . . now what
to Loic and Rachel: Thanks for the lead! I'll try to find. Have to admit, tho, hard to imagine this being any better ...
Indigo Girls did an AMAZING rendition of this song.
Love this song.
That is amazing guitar picking!!!
This song is simply beautiful.

This song really touches my heart. When my husband and I first met it wasn't our time (our time was wrong). Love won in the end. One of my favorite memories is dancing to this song at the Mark Knopfler concert under the stars. Such a beautiful song and memory.
Beautiful song....
Love the drum sequences in this song...ove the lyrics too:)
Love this song!
Sounds like Bob Dylan.
I like knofler voice and guitar playing with nail and flesh
boogiespeed

btw, his voice sounds an octave lower now - even sexier and more haunting.

just saw MK last week - and he played this one. it is recognizable from the first note. he is the best.
RE: ROMEO AND JULIET / DIRE STRAITS
Hope that Dire Straits' live CD, "On the Night" will be added to the Pandora site. The studio version can not in any fairness be compared to the song as captured on the live album. The performances of Knopfler, the band, and the importance of the fans to the recording are remarkable. Everyone's inside the song.
classic song get up there geordie boy.mark knopfler fought years ago to bring the price of cd's down from £15 to round about £5 coz those poxy germaNS WAS MAKING THEM for a measely 99 pence

This was my get over the breakup song
shayray
Something about this song speaks to my soul. It is always relevant.
roxanejj
What a great lyric. I never REALLY listened to the lyrics before. A love song that makes me wanna cry.
I fell deeply in love with the man who sang this song to me.
I have always, and will always, love this song.....one of the best love songs ever written.
The very first time I heard "Sultans of Swing" I was hooked on Dire Straits! Mark guitar is unlike anyone elses! 'Nuff said!!
