Romeo And Juliette - Lou Reed

Caught between the twisted stars

The plotted lines the faulty map

That brought Columbus to New York


Betwixt between the East and West

He calls on her wearing a leather vest

The earth squeals and shudders to a halt


A diamond crucifix in his ear

Is used to help ward off the fear

That he has left his soul in someone's rented car


Inside his pants he hides a mop

To clean the mess that he has dropped

Into the life of lithesome Juliette Bell


And Romeo wanted Juliette


And Juliette wanted Romeo


And Romeo wanted Juliette


And Juliette wanted Romeo


Romeo Rodriguez squares

His shoulders and curses Jesus

Runs a comb through his black pony-tail


He's thinking of his lonely room

The sink that by his bed gives off a stink

Then smells her perfume in his eyes

And her voice was like a bell


Outside the streets were steaming

The crack dealers were dreaming

Of an Uzi someone had just scored


I betcha I could hit that light

With my one good arm behind my back

Says little Joey Diaz


Brother give me another tote

Those downtown hoods are no damn good

Those Italians need a lesson to be taught


This cop who died in Harlem

You think they'd get the warning

I was dancing when I saw his brains run out on the street


And Romeo had Juliette


And Juliette had her Romeo


And Romeo had Juliette


And Juliette had her Romeo


I'll take Manhattan in a garbage bag

With Latin written on it that says

"It's hard to give a shit these days"


Manhattan's sinking like a rock

Into the filthy Hudson what a shock

They wrote a book about it

They said it was like ancient Rome


The perfume burned his eyes


Holding tightly to her thighs


And something flickered for a minute


And then it vanished and was gone
