[Guns and Roses cover with Slash and Duff]

Fuckin' see? Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
[Puts mic in audience]
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?

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 something to eat
I'll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line

Rags to riches, or so they say
You gotta keep pushin' for the fortune and fame
You know, it's all a gamble when it's just a game
You treat it like a capital crime
Everybody's doin' the time

Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home

Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here I can't quite remember
The Surgeon General says it's hazardous to breathe
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
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?

So far away
So far away
So far away
So far away

Captain America's been torn apart
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
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?

Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?

I wanna go
I wanna go
Oh, won't you please take me home?

I wanna see
How could it be?
Oh, won't you please take me home?

Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home?

Take me down
Take me 'round
Oh, won't you please take me home?

I wanna see
How could it be?
Oh, take me home
