(Kim Carnes)

Works real hard in an all night cafe
Says she loves her job
Wouldn't have it any other way
Then he walks in wearin' cheap cologne
She said I'll take off early
If you'll take me home

Come on honey say you will
Jump on into my Coupe De Ville
There's a Mexico sunset standing still
Let's fall in love to the thrill of the grill

His hair was slick but he was slicker
His touch was radioactive
And it made her shiver
When he emptied his pockets
They were filled with champagne
He held out his hand
As he called out her name

Come on honey say you will
Jump on into my Coupe De Ville
There's a Mexico sunset standing still
Let's fall in love to the thrill of the grill

Sideways--oh my God I'm sideways
Half-crazed--dizzy dazed and waylayed
The boss said Phillis have you gone mad
You're the best short order
That I ever had
Don't throw it all away
On a one night fling
Don't be a fool for a foolish thing

So she tore off her apron
Threw down the pan
She said buzz it boss
You just don't understand
I've waited all my life
To feel the thrill
To be carried away
By the thrill of the grill

So come on honey yes I will
I'll jump on into your Coupe De Ville
There's a Mexico sunset standing still
Let's fall in love to the thrill of the grill
