Average: 3.6 (38 votes)

When I was Colombia, I watched lots of old movies with my husband. One of them was West Side Story, a musical based loosely on Romeo and Juliet. Listen to this song and see if you can complete the gaps with the missing words. Try reading through first guessing before you listen. I’ve used a recent version of the song that appeared in the TV show 'Glee', as the quality is better. Enjoy!
