Allegiance The Musical - Paradise Lyrics

"Paradise" is a song from the musical 'Allegiance' performed by Michael K Lee (Frankie) and Company.

FRANKIE:
My fellow Americans, give me your tired, your poor...
Your homes, your businesses, your money!
Just mark yes to questions 27 and 28
And I, Mike Masaoka, will let you stay right here, in paradise!

Dessert, swamp, or dusty waste, they say location's is key
Sure you shiver in this icebox, but cheer up, rent is free
And don't you love to freeze in line for soggy bowls of rice
Just put up and shut up, cause you're in paradise
Is everybody happy?
(No!)
Tough!

When it's pitch black dark at night, the army might assume
That you're trying to escape, if you're running to the bathroom
Let them aim their spotlights down, but smile real nice
Just put up and shut up, cause you're in paradise

Ain't it grand in paradise?
The water tastes like rust, the bedding's filled with crabby lice
Here's a little sound advice
(You better take my sound advice)
Just put up and shut up, cause you're in paradise

Now they aim to separate disloyal from the rest
All you have to do to pass is hold your nose and answer yes
But "no, no" seals your fate, and you will pay a heavy price
They'll grab you, and send you, away from paradise

Ain't it grand in paradise?
The snakes will let you be, if you feed them all the mice
But if you answer no twice
Lord if you check it twice
You'll no, no, you'll go, go, away from paradise

You don't want to take that chance, so answer yes, yes
Do the paradise dance, whoo
Come on, ladies!

Paradise
Hey everybody, it's for our own good right?
Paradise
So we better just do what we should right?
Put up, and shut up
Just put up and shut up
Just put up and shut up
Just put up and shut up
Just shut it up, you're - in - paradise!
Ain't this paradise
