Dolly Parton Romeo (clip and lyrics)

Enjoy watching Dolly Parton’s music video “Romeo” starring Billy Ray Cyrus, Tanya Tucker, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and Pam Tillis ….

The Dolly Parton Romeo song was released in January 1993 as the first single from the album “Slow Dancing with the Moon”. The song reached No. 27 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. The song was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.

Parton was inspired to write the playful song by the romantic antics of her nephew, Bryan, when he was a teenager. “He was the cutest thing, and all the girls were absolutely crazy about him,” she writes in her 2020 book, Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Words. “He was breaking heart after heart. I called him “Romeo”. I kept telling him, ‘Romeo, one of these days you’re going to be heartbroken like this.’ So she wrote a song about it. When she was done she sang it to him and his family and they all “took a hit.”

Roméo Dolly Parton lyrics

A cross between a movie star
And a hero in a book
Romeo comes to strut
And everyone is watching
Because he just has that special thing
that everyone needs
And everyone wants it
But not as bad as me
Hey, Romeo, where are you
Come out here on the floor
I wanna dance you darling
Until you forget why
Take two steps to a new stage
We will keep everything online
And we’ll call it Romeo
Because you are doing so well
Romeo, Romeo, Romeo come dance with me
That sexy little body
Beats all that i’ve ever seen
I’ve never seen a cowboy
Also look good in jeans
My temperature keeps rising
Every time we meet
i may not be in love
But let me tell you
i’m in heat
Romeo, Romeo, I just know I’ll have you again
Romeo, Romeo, I wanna be your Juliet
So go up high, go up low
Go out and enter
Get on your side and let it slide
Then step up again
Walk on your toes, everything is fine
Steppin ‘as you want
But i’m one step away from love
So don’t step on me
Romeo, Romeo, Romeo with magic feet
So go up high, go up low
Go out and enter
Get on your side and let it slide
Then step up again
Walk on your toes, everything is fine
Steppin ‘as you want
But i’m one step away from love
So don’t step on me
Romeo, Romeo
I just know that I will have you again
Romeo, Romeo
Don’t you wanna be my Juliet
Romeo, Romeo
Romeo, Romeo
