G             A              D
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds
E                                         A
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.  But at
               G      A         D        G            A
Night I'd have these won-derful dreams, some kind of sensuous treat.
     Bm        G                    D   G     D
Not zuc-chini, fettu-cini or bul-gar wheat, but a big
G          D   A             D
Warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on   earth with an on-ion slice
Not too par-ticular, not too precise, I'm just a
G      D         A    D
Cheeseburger in paradise

Heard about the old-time sailor men
They eat the same thing again and again
Warm beer and bread they said 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 bananas or daiquiris
But that American creation on which I feed.

Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on   earth with an on-ion slice
Not too par-ticular, not too precise, I'm just a
G      D         A    D
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 gosh almighty, which way do I steer for my
Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on   earth with an on-ion slice
Not too par-ticular, not too precise, I'm just a
Cheeseburger in paradise
