Lyrics:
(Music intro with harmonica)

I got stuck in paradise
I'm free in my head
Changed my attitude
And my head's turned dred
I just met Mickey Maloney
On the beach down the shore
Said to call him in New York
And come knock on some doors
I thought it was kind
It's not on my mind
I'm sitting here
Doin some quality time

(Music bridge and harmonica and lead guitar)

This one's for them [babies] bigots?
In Madison Avenue
In their stretch limosines
And three page contracts too
And the A&R trendies
who didn't have a clue
And if they did, didn't know what to do
And for my buddies in freight elevators
On the 8th Avenue
With their flight-cases and axes
And their tokens too
Intelligenes
show shredded dreams
but still survived by gigs and scenes
and for Bob and they boys
down in Washington square
I miss you all, I just wish you were here

[Chorus]

I got stuck in paradise
I'm free in my head
Changed my attitude
And my head's turned dred
I just met Mickey Maloney
On the beach down the shore
Said to call him in New York
And come knock on some doors
I thought it was kind
It's not on my mind
I'm sitting here
Doin some quality time

(Music to end)
