Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home Oh, won't you please take me home
Verse 3
Just an 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
Verse 4
Ragz to richez or so they say,

It's all a gamble when it's just a game,

Everybody's doing their time

Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here I can't quite remember

I'd have another cigarette but I can't see
Tell me who you're gonna believe

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home, yeah

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

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home
