Romeo

Ketil Stokkan

(Norway 1986)

 

Æ huske' første gang du ba mæ hjem
Æ va' sjenert, men amorøs
Nu skulle lidenskapen lokkes frem
Det va' førseint å bli nervøs

Æ kjøpte blomster og lånte mæ klær
Førr å vise mitt sanne begjær
Men da æ ønske 'velkommen ombord'
Fikk æ høre et par velvalgte ord

Romeo, Romeo
Gudene skal vite at du aldri blir en
Romeo, Romeo
Prøv å ta de' me' ro

Æ gjør' førsøk på å førføre dæ
Du ba om tid tel å førstå
Min største lykke va' å to på dæ
Min største dumhet va' å klå

Æ spelte rollen som elsker og narr
I et håp om at vi sku' bli et par
Men da du så at du vento dæ mer
Fikk æ høre om en kjent kavaler

Romeo, Romeo
Gudene skal vite at du aldri blir en
Romeo, Romeo
Prøv å ta de' me' ro

Romeo, Romeo
Gudene skal vite at du aldri blir en
Romeo, Romeo
Prøv å ta de' me' ro

Og da æ lå på mine knær og ba
Kom du i mot mæ og sa - du sa

Romeo, Romeo
Gudene skal vite at du aldri blir en
Romeo, Romeo
Prøv å ta de' me' ro

...meo, Romeo
Gudene skal vite at du aldri blir en
Romeo, Romeo
Prøv å ta de' me' ro
Romeo
I remember the first time you asked me over
I was shy, but in the mood for love
Now the passion was to be tempted out
It was too late to get nervous

I bought flowers and borrowed clothes
To show my true desire
But when I said welcome on board
I got to hear a few well-chosen words

Romeo, Romeo
The Gods shall know that you never will become a
Romeo, Romeo
Try to take it easy

I made attempts at seducing you
You asked for time to understand
My greatest pleasure was to touch you
My biggest stupidity was to feel you up

I played the part of lover and joker
In the hope that we would become a couple
But when you saw that I expected more
I got to hear of a well-known partner

Romeo, Romeo
The Gods shall know that you never will become a
Romeo, Romeo
Try to take it easy

Romeo, Romeo
The Gods shall know that you never will become a
Romeo, Romeo
Try to take it easy

And when I fell down on my knees and begged
You came towards me and said - you said

Romeo, Romeo
The Gods shall know that you never will become a
Romeo, Romeo
Try to take it easy

...meo, Romeo
The Gods shall know that you never will become a
Romeo, Romeo
Try to take it easy
Romeo
