The Lyrics

This isn't a comedy parody; just thought the music fits the story well:
Romeo and Juliet,
A tale known throughout the land,
First he met her in the Capulet's home,
And didn't care about her old man,

He thought he could keep her forever
Even though he's a Monague,
She ain't no present for Paris to open,
And she wanted Romeo too. (ahh ahh ahh, a-a-a-a-a, ahh, ahh, ahh)

So goodbye Romeo, love,
She said as she picked up his dagger,
And plunging it into her own sweet chest,
Made all of Verona stagger

And with their deaths buried their parents' strife,
And all the old grudges were gone,
If only that happened in our world,
We wouldn't have these wars going on.

When Tybalt slew Mercutio,
Romeo sought his revenge,
Juliet took, the sleeping tonic,
(But knew) it would set her on her feet again

When Baltazar told him of her fate,
Romeo defied the stars,
They should have simply run to Mantua
Instead of following the Friar's crazy pla-a-an (ah-a-a-a-a ah ah ah)
