It was the year it all happened I was at that age
Saw them 2 piece swim suits n’ everything changed
First kiss on the lips boy I was hooked
Swore I’d do whatever it took

Ooh Romeo Days

Had to find a way I could to make ‘em mine
Fast cars, guitars and pickup lines
Must’ve asked a dozen before one said yes
And we shared a couple nights that I’ll never forget

I was a first class last chance Saturday night
With a pretty little Juliet by my side
We were young and wild and never gonna’ be the same
Ridin’ ‘round town with the droptop down
Pushin’ midnight makin’ every moment count
Tryin’ to get it right before the summer slipped away
That’s the way it was back in my Romeo Days

Mid-July down by the lake
Rope swing swingin’ and the radio playin’
Dancin’ in the sun everything was a blur
I couldn’t see anything but her

Ooh Romeo Days

Stars came out we built a big bonfire
We kindled the spark and the flames went higher
She wasn’t the first and she wasn’t the last
But until September we sure had a blast

It was the year it all happened I was at that age
Saw them 2 piece swim suits n’ everything changed
