Guns N’ Roses - Paradise city


Take me down

To the paradise city

Where the grass is green

And the girls are pretty

Take me home

{back vocals}

I want you please take me home

{x 2}

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

You know it’s

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

I want you please take me home

CHORUS:

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

CHORUS

Take me down

To the paradise city

Where the grass is green

And the girls are pretty

I want you please take me home

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

CHORUS

Take me down

To the paradise city

Where the grass is green

And the girls are pretty

I want you please take me home

CHORUS

Take me down

To the paradise city

Where the grass is green

And the girls are pretty

I want you please take me home
