  • Song Lyrics:
    Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill.
    He jumped out the window 'cause he couldn't sit still.
    Juliet was waiting with a safety net.
    He said, 'don't bury me, 'cause I'm not dead yet'.

    Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance.
    I wanna know about the mystery dance.
    Why don't you show me,
    'cause I've tried and I've tried,
    And I'm still mystified.
    I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied.
    I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied.

    Well, I remember when the lights went out
    And I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt.
    She thought that I knew, and I thought that she knew,
    So both of us were willing, but we didn't know how to do it.


    Well, I was down under the covers in the middle of the night,
    Tryin' to discover my left foot from my right.
    You can see those pictures in any magazine.
    But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean.


    I'm gonna walk right up to heaven dodging lightning rods
    I'm gonna have this very personal conversation with God
    I said, 'you got the information, why don't you say so?'
    He'll say, 'Well, I've been around and I still don't know.'
