Paradise City Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Just a' urchin
livin' under the street
I'm a hard case
that's tough to beat
I'm your charity case
So buy me somethin' to eat
I'll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line

Ragz to richez or so they say
Ya gotta-keep pushin'
for the fortune and fame
It's all a gamble
When it's just a game
Ya treat it like a capital crime
Everybody's doin' their time

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, 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 losin' 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

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
Home
Home

I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go
oh wont you please take me home
I want to please
oh can you please
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
Oh won't you please take me home
I wanna go
I wanna go
Oh wont you please take me home
Baby
Huh!
