Words and Music: by Brook Benton and Malcolm Dodds

Money, I ain't got none
Problems, I sure got some
But I got two tickets to paradise
Dontcha wanna go <3 trumpet notes>?

Sadness all round
Gladness just can't be found
But I got two tickets to paradise
Dontcha wanna go with me?

Everything I did was wrong, the day was dark as night
But I found a girl whose love was strong, now everything's all right
(All right!, all right!)

I got to hurry, my bag is packed
I'm leavin' and I ain't comin' back
'cause I got two tickets to paradise
Oh, now dontcha wanna go with me?

The first stop, we'll take a walk
Second stop, we'll have a talk
The third stop <trumpet blast>
Ooh-ee!, you better go with me

Everything I did was wrong, my days were dark as night
But I found a girl whose love was strong, now everything's all right
(All right!, all right!)

I got to hurry, my bag is packed
I'm leavin' and I ain't comin' back
'cause I got me two tickets to paradise
Now don't you want to go with me?

The first stop, we'll take a walk
Second stop, we'll have a talk
The third stop <trumpet blast>
Ooh-ee!, dontcha wanna go with me?

Now don't you want to go with me?
Be my guest, come on and go with me
