Jimmy Buffett

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

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

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

Verse 2: Heard about the oldtime 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 is paradise medium rare with mustard'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 draught 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.
