Just Like Romeo & Juliet
Sha Na Na Lyrics


Finding a job tomorrow morning,
Got a little something I want to do.
Gonna buy something I can ride in
Take my girl dating at the drive-in,
Our love's gonna be written down in history
Just like Romeo and Juliet

I'm gonna buy her pretty presents,
Just like the ones in the catalog.
Gonna show her how much I lover her
Let her know that one way or the other,
Our love's gonna be written down in history
Just like Romeo and Juliet

Right now I'm speculating,
Wonder what to morrow's gonna really bring.
If I don't find work tomorrow
It's gonna be heartaches and sorrow,
Our love's gonna be destroyed by a tragedy
Just like Romeo and Juliet

Talk about love and romance,
Just wait till I get myself straight.
I'm gonna put Romeo's fame right smack dab outta date.

Finding a job tomorrow morning,
Got a little something I want to do.
Gonna buy something I can ride in
Take my girl dating at the drive-in,
Our love's gonna be written down in history
Just like Romeo and Juliet

I think this is the best version of the song. I'm surprised it didn't get any higher. Thanks for posting it!

No way is this the best version. They couldn’t even hold that long note at the end like Tony Micale did on the original version.

Sweet! Loved Johnnie Contardo from his Sha Na Na days. This was one of their great covers. Thanx for putting this up!

This was always one of my favorite songs on their album.

So glad to find this here. Johnny was so good. One of the best rock voices ever.

Jeez, this just brought me back to early 1983. My dad gave me a copy of a Sha Na Na tape when I was nine (third grade) & this was my favorite song on it. And I haven't listened to this song since then. Thank you for helping me break an almost 30-year drought.

Recording by the Reflections peaked at #6 in spring 1964. Sha Na Na's version 11 years later peaked at just #55
