Third Rate Romance
Written by: Amazing Rhythm Aces
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
Sittin' at a tiny table
In a ritzy restaurant
She was starin' at her coffee cup
He was tryin' to keep his courage up
By applying booze
The talk was small
When they talked at all
They both knew what they wanted
There was no need to talk about it
They were old enough to scoff it out
And keep it loose
She said, you don't look like my type
But I guess you'll do
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous
He said, I'll even tell you
That I love you
If you want me to
Third rate romance
Low rent rendezvous

[Musical Interlude]

And they left the bar
They got in his car
And they drove away
He drove to the Family Inn
She didn't even have to pretend
She didn't know what for
Then he went to the desk
And made his request
While she waited outside
And he came back with the key
And she said, give it to me
And I'll unlock the door

She kept sayin'
I've never really 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
