Golden Earring - Paradise In Distress Lyrics




Devil just bought a brand new
Devil just bought a brand new
Devil just bought a brand new penthouse in heaven
There goes the old neighbourhood
There goes the old neighbourhood
There goes the good old neighbourhood on a one way trip to hell
(Shake you sinner)

Jesus won't drive nothin' but a shiny white Mercedes
And all the angels gotta settle for second hand Oldsmobile's
The virgin Mary loses faith and starts a chain-reaction
The Lord just stands there weepin' bitter tears in the rain
Ain't that a shame...
(Shake you sinner!)

Almost as if the bad guys, got the good guys on the run
All in the line of expectation, in the eyes of the evil one
Like a mad bull chargin' through a closet of porcelain 'Made in China'
Saddlin' up the righteous, with nightmares full of trauma

Devil just bought a brand new
Devil just bought a brand new
Devil just bought a brand new penthouse in heaven
There goes the old neighbourhood
There goes the old neighbourhood
There goes the good old neighbourhood movin' on down to hell

There's no one here, there's nothin' left
No one here to kiss or bless
This damp and dark unholy mess
You could say: Paradise in distress
(Shake you sinner)

Behind the clouds there's a silver line
The sun just can't stop waitin'
To put a shine on a clear blue sky
And kill the pessimist in me
Meanwhile, there's no one here, there's nothin' left
No one here to kiss or bless
This damp and dark unholy mess
You could say: Paradise in distress
(Shake you sinner)

    Are they trying to prove their political credentials? Outside of the words they say in polite company, Dutch people can be some of the biggest bigots you've ever seen to non-white people, women etc. And arrogant as hell.

  20. Paul van der Werf

    Giga geweldig lied

  21. Sieger Zuiderveld

    Love this song. Watched them about two years ago in theater. Guy's came on; I saw a bunch of old guy's. Looked like grandpa's. Then they started playing... Lovely concert; it looked like they transformed in the young guy's they once were. Very rarely seen musicians playing with so much pleasure. Hope they will keep on playing well in their eighties....

  22. FERIFREAKY

    OMG. I so forgot I did this one as CD-extra for them in 1999. Just found it back on an old back up! KREWL!!!
