Grab your coat honey grab your hat This train is leavin' an it ain't comin' back. Don't need a ticket can't you understand,

It's up to you, to make it real, so take me Take me back to paradise, ooh Take me back to paradise, ooh Old Saint Peter at the pearly gate, Sayin' "Hurry up boy or you're gonna be late." Take your mind off your worries for a moment or two, You gotta rock to the rhythm, it ain't hard to do. Cause what you see, I know you're gonna like, yeah. It's up to you, to make it real, to take me, Take me back to paradise Take me back to paradise (paradise) oh yeah. Ooh, an when it's outta reach, it's just another beach In another town. So get your feet back on the ground. You worked all your life, you ain't satisfied With a thing you've found. When will you realize it'll come around? Pack your bags baby, get your things. You'll never know what tomorrow brings. Mind yourself and watch what you say, Before you know, you'll be on your way. It's overdue, but now the time is right, yeah. It's up to you, to make it real, so take me Take me back to paradise, paradise, uh huh Take me back to paradise, ooh Won't you take me back to paradise.
