(Verse 1)
Bigger house a fancy car
Is how you measure what you are
The more you have the more you want
And all your wealth you love to flaunt

In your fool's paradise, fool's paradise
Livin' a lie
It's a fool's paradise, fool's paradise
Trapped inside
When you going to realize?

(Verse 2)
The neighbors drive Mercedes Benz
Just trying to keep up never ends
When paying bills gets much too hard
Just get another credit card

Cause it's a fool's paradise, fool's paradise
Livin' a lie
It's a fool's paradise, fool's paradise
Trapped inside
When you going to realize?

Well the God who made you
Is Holy and good
Not like some movie star in Hollywood
You shut him out
You live by pride
And wonder why you're never satisfied

(Ending - repeat and fade)
Paradise, fool's paradise
