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.
