Cheeseburger in Paradise – Monday’s Music Moves Me

Hope you all had a fun Halloween!  Can you believe it’s the first day of November already?  Since it’s Monday, we’re back for another fun edition of Monday’s Moves Me.  No selected theme this week, and with it being ‘free choice’, I decided to pick one of my favorite songs .  Enjoy!

Here are the lyrics:

CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE
Jimmy Buffett

Tried to amend my carnivorous habits.
Made it nearly seventy days,
Losin’ weight without speed-eatin’ sunflower seeds,
Drinkin’ lots of carrot juice and soakin’ up rays.

But at night I’d have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat.
Not zucchini, fettucini, bulgar wheat,
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.

Cheeseburger in 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 old time sailor men,
They eat the same thing again and again;
Warm beer and bread they said 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 bananas or daiquiris,
But that American creation on which I feed!

Cheeseburger in paradise, medium rare with mustard be nice
Heaven on earth with an onion slice.
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 draft beer
Well, good god Almighty which way do I steer

For my 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.

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well, good god Almighty which way do I steer

Enjoy your Monday!

  1. Great pick! Love me some Buffet! We saw him in concert a couple of years ago and it was a blast!

    Thanks for stopping by today! Happy MM! 🙂

  2. Jimmy Buffet is a legend. Wow, there was quite a crowd at the show in the video; and it didn’t look like a festival. Everybody was there for him.

    Fun song choice and I love his restaurants!

  3. I lived in Dayton, close to Cinci. Jimmy B is like a God there.
    This is a great SONG!
    Feels like summer!

  4. omg What a cool choice! I was in Memphis visiting my granddaughter & we went to their new aquarium there it’s gorgeous by the way & we went to this 50’s burger place around the corner & this was their theme. I even bought Dave a tee shirt with all that on it. Too funny! Love the shirt. I should do a post on it. LOL Thanks for playing along sweetie! You DUH BEST! HUGS! Hope you’re havin’ fun “Justa Walkin’ your BLOG” LOL!

  5. We have one of those restaurants right here in Ft Myers, Fl. Of course, the first time we went, I ordered the signature cheeseburger.
    Meh.
    I was disappointed.
    (But the fries were delish!)

  6. Have you eaten or drank at that restaurant – so yummy! I like the drink they serve they named after their title. Great song also. I have been craving cheeseburgers lately – we are trying to avoid red meat and cheese. I miss it. 🙁

  7. I sang this song in school choir when I was 10 or so and I have loved it ever since! (I think the version we sang was toned down a bit!)
