  • If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
    Who needs paradise I'd rather have you
    They say paradise is up in the stars
    But I needn't sigh because it's so far
    'Cause I know it's worth a heaven on earth
    For me where you are

    A look from your eyes, a touch of your hand
    And I seem to fly to some other land
    When you are around my heart always pounds
    Just like a brass band

    If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
    Who needs paradise I'd rather have you
    Oh yes I'd rather have you

    If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
    Who needs paradise I'd rather have you
    Oh yes I'd rather have you

    They say paradise is up in the stars
    But I needn't sigh because it's so far
    'Cause I know it's worth a heaven on earth
    To me where you are

    A look from your eyes a touch of your hand
    And I seem to fly to some other land Writer/s: Giulio Rapetti Mogol, Jack Fishman, Lucio Battisti
