C               D                     Em
In the ballroom of romance, there's a rock band playing
                      D
People swaying to the beat
               C
Swaying in the heat
                    D                       Em
In the corner, over there by the door, is a local Casanova
                           Bm
Yelling for another double scotch
                    C
"Hey, steady on the rocks!"
             D                    C
And when the girl walked in, a complete unknown
          D                    C
There was mass confusion, this beauty was alone
             G             C
And then the room began to shimmer
      G                 C
Every heart was beating fast
      G              C
Every man who had to win her
           D
Was moving fast,
                Em    C D 
They said, "I'm ready,
    Em    D     C      D
I'm ready for romance"
     Em    D     C         D       C - ? - Csus2 - C
"I'm ready for romance, is here at last"

C               D                     Em
In the ballroom of romance, there's a young man waiting
                             D
Standing looking over at the scene
                   C
It could be you or me
                 D                         Em
Every eye in the room was watching, as she walked over to him
                                     Bm
Whispered, "Do you want to come with me
                    C
I'm heading for the beach"
       D   C         
In her BMW six-thirty-five
      D                         C
Going smooth at ninety, feeling good to be alive
             G             C
And then the moon began to shimmer
         G               C
Hey, the sea was roaring in
         G                 C
Just one kiss and then his heart
         D
Began to sing
              Em    C D 
He said, "I'm ready,
    Em    D     C      D
I'm ready for romance"
     Em     D    C         D       C - ? - Csus2 - C
"I'm ready for romance, is here at last"

C        G             C
Hey, the moon began to shimmer
        G               C
And the sea was roaring in
        G              C
And the last thing I remember
        D
Was her kiss
             Em     C D 
I said, "I'm ready,
    Em    D     C     D
I'm ready for romance"
     Em     C D 
"I'm ready,
    Em    D     C     D
I'm ready for romance"
             Em     C D 
I said, "I'm ready,
    Em    D     C     D
I'm ready for romance"
     Em     D    C         D       C - ? - Csus2 - C
"I'm ready for romance, is here at last!"
