"Everybody's looking for Paradise" (Song)



“Everybody’s looking for Paradise”


We all want the pleasures of life we want it now without the strife
 Feeling down and feeling crappy we want the things that will make us happy
Give me all the things that life’s about it’s all we hear it’s the common shout
I want to have it now give it all to me this is real life oh can’t you see

Chorus

Everyone wants it right away, not tomorrow, but today
 We want the things that bring us joy we want the big expensive toys
Everyone’s trying to figure how everybody wants to have it now
Everyone is searching for everything nice everyone is looking for paradise
Everyone is looking for paradise everyone is looking for paradise

I’ve finally made it I’ve got it all now I’m feeling pretty tall
Look at me I’m so well off I’m prosperous look like a toff
Propitious and elegant some think that I’m arrogant
Success has finally come my way now I know for sure it’s here to stay


Chorus

Everyone wants it right away, not tomorrow, but today
 We want the things that bring us joy we want the big expensive toys
Everyone’s trying to figure how everybody wants to have it now
Everyone is searching for everything nice everyone is looking for paradise
Everyone is looking for paradise everyone is looking for paradise


What do you mean I have to die I won’t give up my piece of the pie
I know that you will all agree I earned it all it belongs to me
You mean I have to say goodbye I begin to grieve and start to cry
Now I have to leave it all now I’m not feeling very tall


It’s sure to happen you are going to die someone will get your piece of the pie
Life comes to a close and it’s usually abrupt there comes a time when we give it up
It’s imminent you’re going to die as your soul takes its flight to the “Spirit in the sky”
Yes, It’s imminent you’re going to die as your soul takes its flight to the “Spirit in the sky”
As your soul takes its flight to the “Spirit in the sky” as your soul takes its flight to the “Spirit in the

sky”



Chorus

Everyone wants it right away, not tomorrow, but today
 We want the things that bring us joy we want the big expensive toys
Everyone’s trying to figure how everybody wants to have it now
Everyone is searching for everything nice everyone is looking for paradise 
 Everyone is looking for paradise everyone is looking for paradise
