Star Crossed Love

lyrics

Knew a honcho 20 years out the pokie living on the fringe--
Spent his days dogfighting and tasting his darling's oleomargarine

Romeo, Romeo, where in the world is the Romeo?

Knew a man who build his gal a house, said, "Darling, we're gonna be rich."
Burnt that stead on down, collected that little gal's life insurance.

Romeo, Romeo, where in the world is the Romeo?

Wearing a baby blue zoot suit with shoulderpads that make him look six feet wide,
Andalusian rose underneath his lapel next to his bolo tie.

Romeo, Romeo, where in the world is Romeo?

Last fight I was in was over a woman--her new man shot me through and through,
That hole he left in me nothing like what she done, man, nothing like an exit wound.

Romeo, Romeo, where in the world is the Romeo?

I rise with my body at my feet--
The man in the moon lets down his silver chain, I climb as he begins to sing,

"Romeo, Romeo, where in the world is the Romeo?"
