By a fountain back in rome I fell in love with you
In a small cafe in athens you said you loved me too
And it was april in paris when I first held you close to me
Rome, georgia, athens, texas and paris, tennessee

No, we're not the jet set
We're the old chevro-let set
There's no riviera
In festus, missouri
And you won't find onassis
In mullinville, kansas
No, we're not the jet set
We're the old chevro-let set
But ain't we got love

No, we're not the jet set
We're the old chevro-let set
Our steak and martinis
Is draft beer with weenies
Our bach and tchaikovsky
Is haggard and husky
No, we're not the jet set
We're the old chevro-let set
But ain't we got love

No, we're not the jet set
We're the old chevro-let set
The prine and dement set
Ain't the flaming suzette set
Our bach and tchaikovsky
Is haggard and husky
We're the old chevro-let set
But ain't we got love
