Midler, Bette - Paradise Lyrics

There is a land I know
where lovers go and flowers grow
forever more;
where time is standing still
and lovers fill the quiet places
by the shore.

We will cross the rainbow
to a place where we'll be free,
and he'll give his love to me.
So I wait for the day
when he takes me away to

He'll take me by my hand.
We'll walk along the sand.
It's never-never land.
Whoa-oo, whoa-oo, whoa.

We'll build a castle there
where we can share the happiness
we've waited for.
Where white flamingos fly
a-way up high and play above
the ocean floor.

We will climb a mountain
to see our wonderland.
Maybe know you'll understand
why I wait for the day
when he takes me away to

He'll take me by my hand.
We'll walk along the sand.
A never-never land.
Whoa-oo, whoa-oo, whoa.

I'll stand by him,
do right by him
and I swear that I would die for him.
Ohh, die for him.

He'll take me by my hand.
We'll walk along the sand.
It's never-never land.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'll stand by him,
do right by him.
Oh, yeah. Oh-oh, oh, yeah.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

I'm gonna stand, I'm gonna stand by him.
Gonna do right, gonna do right by him.
Oh-oh, oh-oh, yeaeaeaeaheah.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah . . .

  2. Pruteanu Mircea

  3. Randy Man

    This song was written by the one and only Harry Nilsson. I wish she had delved more into his catalog, she does such a great job interpreting his music.

  4. Janet Snyder

    If I could turn back the clock " I would start all over with Bette Again .... That woman liked me ....
    And I was too stupid to see it ....lol " I don't know what I was thinking at the time ... But I still see us in front of me ..I wonder if she still remembers me ? I Bet if we Met again she would remembers us I can Bet on it ! !

  5. Kyle Hoffa

    I first saw this when I was 16 or 17. Ordered the DVD from Barnes and Noble. Still love it to this day and I'm 28 now.

  6. James Hunnisett

    I'm going to see this remarkable creature live at The O2 Arena in London's Docklands on 19th July. This is the realisation of a 35 year long dream. I first saw Bette live when I caught a televised showing of The Divine Miss M way back in 1981. I was twelve. I fell in love. She spoke to whatever it was in myself that I knew was different from my friends at school. Over the years, her insightful and sincere emotional performances have been a constant. She's helped me express feelings of both joy and pain as I've passed through the thresholds of life experience. - Bette; if you ever get to read this, you are a irrepressible force of nature. You have had a significant impact upon my life and world view. This world has truly been richer for your presence. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU IN THE FLESH!!!!

    LOVE this ......after all the hurt and hate I found my true love and he took me away to PARADISE for ever more

  12. Tom Johnson

    OH do I love Bette and this song

  13. Randy McDonald

    HHOW COOL FOR YOU BUD! That was truly an all out performance for the Divine one. We were really lucky to not only be there but to actually a part of the scene!!!

  14. EagleRockers

    @burffle You and me both! I was in the audience for Divine Madness at the Pasadena Auditorium. You're right, I remeber how sick she was, but she gave it her all!
    AND when she was filiming concert scenes for The Rose at the Wiltern Theatre in L.A. We all had to wear 'hippie' attire. I was given a camera with flash bulbs and instructed to pretend to take pictures of the Rose during her concert. Another great day with the Divine!

  15. dj martin

    what happened to the video of big noise from winnetka from divine madness? i have the dvd but i used to like to catch a quick glimpse of it on you tube.

  16. Tom Johnson

    What can I say other than seeing the D. Miss M at the red rocks way back in 1972 with the "this is my last the on stages so here goes', but the only thing is that she has done this every time that I that saw her and what the F she still is dong it every time like it is the last time she will be on stage. Love the lady so much with what she has daid and done for us.

  17. pungissunob

    I am always amazed as I watch her give every ounce of energy that she has in this show. And then, as if that is not enough, she does a head stand at the very end, to make sure that she has nothing left in her tank. Thanks, Bette, for years of pleasure.

  18. scudder99

    @burffle I'm so envious.

  19. Randy McDonald

    I went to 2 of the 3 nights tapings. She first came out too fast, was in the middle of the song then grabbed her head & ran back stage, She was really sick with bronchitis but had tomake the film, came out & appologized & started over. WE WERE SCREAMING OUR HEADS OFF FOR HER!!!

  20. Randy McDonald

    I WAS THERE THAT NIGHT!!! She was sick as hell w/bronchitis but she still kicked ass! Thanks for putting this clip up. I am also the guy in The Rose who was sniffing a rose in the audience just before she sang, When a man loves a woman. I WOULD LOVE IT IF SOMEONE COULD UPLOAD IT TO YOUTUBE!

  21. Tim5000

    TY for sharing one of my favorites.

  22. AnnaKarina2

    She is amazing! very Beautiful!

  23. drtpur16

    I don't know how she can jump up and down like that and keep her voice from going out of control. This woman never ceases to amaze me.

  24. SactoGranny

    She never leaves one wanting more...she gives her all to every song.
