 GAD
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
 GAD
 Made it nearly seventy days
 GAD
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds
 EA
 Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays
 GAD
But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
 GABm
 Some kind of sensuous treat
 GDGD
Not zucchini, fettucini or bulgar wheat
 GDAD
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Chorus:
 GAD
     Cheeseburger in paradise
 GAD
     Heaven on Earth with an onion slice
 GAD
     Not too particular, not too precise
 GDAD
     I'm just a Cheeseburger in paradise

 GAD
Heard about the old time sailor men
 GAD
They eat the same thing again and again
 GAD
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
 EA
 Well it reminds me of the menu at a Holiday Inn

 GDAD
But times change, sailors these days
 GABm
 When I'm in port I get what I need
 GDGD
Not just Havanas or bananas  or  daiquiris
 GDAD
But that American  creation  on which I  feed

Chorus:
 GAD
     CheeseburgerinParadise
 GAD
     Medium rare with mustard  be nice
 GAD
     Heaven on Earth with an  onion slice
 GDAD
     I'm just Cheeseburgerin 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

Chorus:
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)
