Steve, Cathy, and Nicholas -- Missing verse from Romeo and Juliet song--a joke ICOBOM (created 2010-02-13)

Here's a joke that I wrote myself. I call these jokes ICOBOM (I can only blame on myself) because if they are bad, I can't shift the blame to someone else.

Something has always bothered me about that "Romeo and Juliet" song by Taylor Swift (the actual title is "Love Story"). It seems like everything is tied up into a neat package at the end, but the package is just too neat. I couldn't quite figure out how to put it into words, though, until I stumbled across the missing final verse of the song. Here it is. I think it makes the song end on a much better note.

Romeo, what's the deal, why the sudden change of heart
For the longest time, you've hidden, forcing us to be apart
Just when I was thinking that your love for me was really dead
Then you pop up suddenly and suggest that we should wed

Such a shift in attitude, I just can't believe your style.
Jumping from a total absence straight into the wedding aisle
Why are you so fickle, why can't you decide to stay or go.
I don't want to live like this, so baby I'll just say no.

What now?
