Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losing weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds,
Drinking lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.

But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat.
Not zucchini, fettuccine, or bulgur wheat,
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.

Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on earth with an onion slice.
Not too particular, not too precise
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise

I like mine with lettuce and tomato,
Heinz Fifty-seven 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.

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

But times have changed for sailors these days
When I'm in port I get what I need;
Not just Havanas or banana or daiquiris,
But that American creation on which I feed!

Cheeseburger in paradise
Medium rare with Muenster'd be nice
Not too particular, not too precise
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise


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 a cheeseburger in paradise
Makin' the best of every virtue and vice
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice
To get a cheeseburger in paradise
To be a cheeseburger in paradise
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise
