Romeo & Juliet
Mr Wenk’s Reported Speech Riddle (i.e. English Test Numero Uno)
This is a part of the story of Romeo and Juliet. The story has become legend and legend is passed on from ear to mouth, from generation to generation. Tell the important parts of this legend how it happened once upon a time, in a place far, far away…
A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade, laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made. He finds a convenient streetlight and steps out of the shade and says something like “You and me babe, hey, how about this?” (2)
he asked Juliet how it was with him and her
Juliet says: “Oh, it’s Romeo, you nearly got me a heart attack! Just standing there underneath my window!”, and silently, almost to herself, she’s singing “Hey la, my boyfriend’s back.” (5)
Juliet was surprised that it was Romeo and he had nearly got her a heart attack by standing there underneath her window. Silently she sang that her boyfriend was back.
Loudly, however, she says: “You shouldn’t come around here, singing up at people like this”, and Romeo replies: “Well, what are you going to do about it?” (4)
She said that he shouldn’t come around there, singing up at people like that, and Romeo asked what she was going to do about that.
So he begins to sing: “Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start, and I bet, and you exploded in my heart… And I forget, I forget the movie song – when will you realise it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet.” (7)
He began to sing to her that the dice had been loaded from the start, and he had bet, and she had exploded in his heart. And he had forgotten the movie song and asked when she would realise that it had just been the time that had been wrong.
Juliet replies: “Come on… don’t be such a fool. I’d rather fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold, and tell them – that is if they ask me at all - Romeo? You know, I used to have a scene with him.” (6)
Juliet told him not to be such a fool and that she would rather fall for pretty strangers and the promises they held and tell them , if they asked her about Romeo at all that she had used to have a scene with him.
Romeo almost gives up and whispers: “All I do is miss you and the way we used to be. All I do is keep the beat and bad company. And all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme. Julie, I’d do the stars with you anytime.” (6)
Romeo whispered that all he did was miss her and the way they had used to be, and all he did was keep the beat and bad company. All he did was kiss her through the bars of a rhyme and he would do the stars with her anytime.
