Third Rate Romance

Sittin at the fancy table in the ritzy restaurant
He was staring at his coffee cup
He was trying to get his courage up
Tied by a noose

Well, the talk was small
And when they talked at all
They both knew what they wanted
There was no need to talk about it
They were old enough to stalk it out
And still keep it loose

And she said "You don't look like my type but I guess you'll do"
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous
And he said "I'll tell ya I love you if you want me too"
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous

Well, they left the bar
And they got in his car
And they drove away, yeah, yeah
And they went to the Family Inn
And they didn't even have to pretend
They didn't know what for

And he went to the desk
And he made his request
While she waited outside
Then he came back with the key
And she said "Give it to me and I'll unlock the door"

And she said "I've never done this kind of thing before have you?"
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous
And he said "Yes I have, but only a time or two"
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous
Third Rate Romance, low rent rendezvous
