The View UpStairs the Musical - Some Kind of Paradise Lyrics


BUDDY:
In the summertime heat
Down on Iberville Street
Sex and incense mixed in the air
I met a man who shook my bones
With one penetrating stare
He said, "No reason to fear
Boy, your mama ain't here
Come home with me instead."
And it was heaven on a loan
I woke up in a stranger's bed
And I said:

I think I found some kind of paradise
No angel wings, no fairy dust
Just the rush of lust, but it's all right
And though this place is far from heavenly
No golden throne, the ecstasy
Is just temporary, but it's all right

I haven't seen him since then
But I'd been born again
The world was dangerous and new
I chose a family of my own
Who shared a brand new point of view
Now you've all gathered 'round
In this kingdom we've found
Where the queens and clones collide
And though it reeks of cheap cologne
It's my favorite escape from the world outside

I think I found some kind of paradise
No angel wings, no fairy dust
Just the rush of lust, but it's all right
And though this place is far from heavenly
No golden throne, the ecstasy
Is just temporary, but it's all right
It's all right. It's all right
