	   G              A	        D
Tried to a-mend my car-   nivorous  hab-its
           Made it nearly seventy days
losin'     weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds

E				  A
drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.  But at
     G	      A         D	        G            A
night I'd have these won-derful dreams, some kind of sensuous treat. 
Bm        G		D	   G	     D
   Not zuc-chini, fettu-cini or bul-gar wheat, but a big 
	  G		D	   A             D
	   warm bun	 and a huge hunk of meat.

Chorus:   G           A                D
	  Cheese-     burger in        paradise
          Heaven on   earth with an on-ion slice
	  Not too par-ticular, not     too precise, I'm just a
          G      D         A    D
 	  cheese-burger in para-dise

Additional lyrics:

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.


I like mine with lettuce and tomato		       \
Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes			\__    GUITAR
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer			/    TACET HERE
Well, good God Almighty, which way do I steer for my   /
