Enjoy watching the Dolly Parton "Romeo" music video featuring 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 number 27 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The song was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.

Parton was inspired to write the lighthearted 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 wrote in her 2020 book, Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics. “He was breaking one heart after another. I called him ‘Romeo.’ I kept saying to him, ‘Romeo, one of these days you’re going to get your heart broke like that.’  So she wrote a song about it. When she was finished, she sang it to him and her family and they “all got a kick out of it.”

Dolly Parton Romeo Lyrics

A cross between a movie star
And a hero in a book
Romeo comes struttin’ in
And everybody looks
‘Cause he’s just got that special thang
That everybody needs
And everybody wants him
But not as bad as me
Hey, Romeo, where art thou
Get out here on the floor
I want to dance you darlin’
‘Til you forget wherefore
Let’s two step to a new step
We’ll keep it all in line
And we’ll call this the Romeo
‘Cause you’re so mighty fine
Romeo, Romeo, Romeo come dance with me
That sexy little body
Beats all I’ve ever seen
I ain’t never seen a cowboy
Look that good in jeans
My temperature keeps risin’
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 get you yet
Romeo, Romeo, I want to be your Juliet
So step it high, step it low
Step it out and in
Step to the side and let it slide
Then steppin’ up again
Step on toes, it all goes
Steppin’ as you please
But I’m one step away from love
So don’t step out on me
Romeo, Romeo, Romeo with the magic feet
So step it high, step it low
Step it out and in
Step to the side and let it slide
Then steppin’ up again
Step on toes, it all goes
Steppin’ as you please
But I’m one step away from love
So don’t step out on me
Romeo, Romeo
I just know I’ll get you yet
Romeo, Romeo
Won’t you be my Juliet
Romeo, Romeo
Romeo, Romeo
