Lyrics

Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty (Oh, won't you please take me home) Take me home Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty (Oh, won't you please take me home) Take me home Just an urchin living under the street I'm a hard case that's tough to beat I'm your charity case so buy me something to eat I'll pay you at another time Take it to the end of the line Rags to riches or so they say You gotta keep pushing for the fortune and fame You know, it's all a gamble when it's just a game You treat it like a capital crime Everybody's doing their time Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Oh, won't you please Take me home, yeah, yeah Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Take me home Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber Why I'm here I can't quite remember The surgeon general says it's hazardous to breathe I'd have another cigarette but I can't see Tell me who you're gonna believe

Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Take me home, yeah, yeah Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Oh, won't you please take me home, yeah So far away, so far away So far away, so far away Captain America's been torn apart Now he's a court jester with a broken heart He said turn me around and take me back to the start I must be losing my mind, are you blind? I've seen it all a million times Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Take me home, yeah, yeah Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Oh, won't you please take me home Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Take me home, yeah, yeah Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Oh, won't you please take me home, home Ooh, I wanna go I wanna know Oh, won't you please take me home I wanna see How good it'll be Oh, won't you please take me home Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Take me home Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty Oh, won't you please take me home...........
