10cc – Welcome to Paradise Lyrics

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)
Said the band on the run
Annie get your gun

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
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
(Bad vibrations)
There’s a coup coming on
(Feeling the tension)
There’s a coup coming on
(No smoke without fire)
Said the band on the run
Annie get your gun

I shouldn’t have come
No, I shouldn’t have come
Why did I come? Hey

The clouds were gathering, the temperature rising
Be no turning back, all my bridges were burned
Then it hit me, jumped up and bit me
I’m under your spell, I will 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
(Bad vibrations)
There’s a coup coming on
(Feeling the tension)
There’s a coup coming on
(No smoke without fire)
Said the band on the run
Annie get your gun

There’s a coup coming on
(Won’t help me, help me)
There’s a coup coming on
(So much I don’t follow )
There’s a coup coming on
(I’m not looking for trouble)
There’s a coup coming on
A coup coming on

There’s a coup coming on
(Temperature rising)
There’s a coup coming on
(Temperature rising)
There’s a coup coming on
(Temperature rising)
Said 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

Welcome to paradise
Welcome to paradise
Welcome to paradise
Said the band on the run
Annie get your gun

Welcome to paradise
