Cheeseburger in Paradise  Jimmy Buffett

Intro: ** Play "|" as strums or beats

Bm |||| A |
Bm |||| G |
Bm |||| A | D |

Tried to a[G]mend my car[A]nivorous ha[D]bits
[G]Made it nearly [A]seventy da[D]ys
Losin' we[G]ight without s[A]peed, eatin' sun[D]flower seeds
[E]Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and [A]soakin' up rays
But at [G]night I'd [A]have these w[D]onderful dreams
[G]Some kind of [A]sensuous tre[Bm]at
Not zuc[G]chini, fettu[D]cini or bu[G]lgar w[D]heat
But a [G]big warm b[D]un and a h[A]uge hunk of m[D]eat

     [G]Cheese[A]burger in [D]paradise
     [G]Heaven on [A]Earth with an o[D]nion slice
     [G]Not too par[A]ticular, no[D]t too precise
     I'm just a [G]Cheese[D]burger in [A]parad[D]ise

Heard [G]about the old[A] time sailor[D] men
They ea[G]t the sam[A]e thing again[D] and again
Warm beer [G]and bread they[A] said could raise[D] the dead
[E]Well it reminds me of the menu at[A] a Holiday Inn

But[G] times [D]change, [A]sailors these [D]days
[G]When I'm in port[A] I get what[Bm] I need
Not[G] just Havanas [D]or bananas [G] or [D] daiquiris
But[G] that American [D] creation [A] on which I [D] feed
     [G]Medium rare [A]with mustard [D] be nice
     [G]Heaven on [A]Earth with an [D] onion slice
     I'm just [G]a [D]Cheeseburger[A]in [D]Paradise

** (Guitar Tacet throughout)
** I like mine with lettuce and tomato
** Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes
** Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
** Well good God almighty which way do I steer for my

Cheeseburger in Paradise
Makin' the best of every virtue and vice
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice to get a
Cheeseburger in Paradise
I need a Cheeseburger in Paradise
I'm just a Cheeseburger in Paradise

Repeat intro
Repeat Guitar Tacet part (above)
