I kissed my mother, shook the hand of my brother and I said goodbye to the woman I loved
It may seem like a madness to be leaving the love nest but I'm taking a chance on a place far away
Welcome to paradise
Who said you can't live twice?
You will find heaven is here on Earth
Welcome to paradise
Did somebody say
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on
(There's a coup coming on) Bad vibrations
(There's a coup coming on) Feeling the tension
(There's a coup coming on) No smoke without fire
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on
I could smell the danger
Never dance with a stranger
But the music took me and soon I was lost
So I questioned a lady
But her answers were crazy
And before I knew I was counting the cost
Welcome to paradise
Love it but don't look twice
You'll soon be living in make believe
Welcome to paradise
Did somebody say
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on
(There's a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)) Somebody help me
(There's a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)) So much I don't follow
(There's a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)) I'm not looking for trouble
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on
I shouldn't have come
No I shouldn't have come
Why did I come, hey?

The clouds were gathering and the temperature rising
Be no turning back, all my bridges were burned
Then it hit me, jumped up and bit me
Now I'm under your spell, I can never return
This is your paradise
Now you must pay the price
You should have flown when the coup was blown
Welcome to paradise
Did somebody say
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on
There’s a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on
See the band on the run, Annie get your gun
Welcome to paradise
Welcome to paradise
Welcome to paradise
There's a coup coming on, a coup coming on, there's a coup (Welcome to paradise)
Bad vibrations (There's a coup) (Welcome to paradise)
Feeling the tension (There's a coup) (Welcome to paradise)
No smoke without fire (See the band on the run, Annie get your gun)
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise) Help me, help me
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise) So much I don’t follow
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise) I'm not looking for trouble
There’s a coup coming on, a coup coming on (Ooh, can’t you help me?)
There's a coup (Welcome to paradise), temperature rising
There's a coup (Welcome to paradise), temperature rising
There's a coup (Welcome to paradise), temperature rising
See the band on the run, Annie get your gun
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on, a coup coming on
There's a coup (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup (Welcome to paradise)
See the band on the run, Annie get your gun
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on, a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
See the band on the run, Annie get your gun
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
There’s a coup coming on, a coup coming on
There's a coup coming on (Welcome to paradise)
