Lyrics

Hey- what is this, some kind of a joke?
Where am I? Who are you people?
What… is this place?

don’t tell me- let me guess
ah yes- this must be Paradise
it’s so nice, so very nice

hey honey you might think I’m crazy
but I’ve been thinkin’- why don’t we get married?
you and me can do like Mom and Daddy did
settle down here and have some real nice kids
I like this house and this development
I like this pretty little white picket fence
I like this lawn I like this neighborhood
I wanta stay right here until I feel good

I’m so tired now- I think I’ll sleep
never wake up from this American dream

don’t tell me- let me guess
ah yes- this must be Paradise
it’s so nice, so very nice
please pinch me- say it’s true
‘cause I just can’t believe my eyes
it’s so nice
this must be Paradise

it’s quiet here- the sky is blue
and I might stay if I weren’t just passin’ through
it’s the kind of place you can call your home
and wonder where you’d be if you’d kept on goin’
sometimes, when I’ve said goodnight to the wife
I take a moment and think about my life
and all these strangers that I gave my name
who all took a piece of me and staked their claim

I think I need to lie down for a little nap
I’m gonna drift off and I’m never comin’ back

Chorus
Ya gotta be kiddin’ me
