Intro: 
    Bm   A
    Bm   G
    Bm   A D

	  G          A	        D
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
G              A         D
Made it nearly seventy days
         G             A               D
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds
E				  A
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays


       G	 A           D	      G
But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
G            A           Bm
Some kind of sensuous treat
       G           D         G	   D
Not zucchini, fettucini or bulgar wheat
      G         D         A            D
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

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

Interlude: Bm   A D

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

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

Chorus:
 G    A         D
Cheeseburger in paradise
G         A              D
Heaven on Earth with an onion slice
G          A          D
Not too particular, not too precise
           G     D         A    D
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 my

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

Interlude:
    Bm   A
    Bm   G
    Bm   A D



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
