Cheeseburger in Paradise

On my way back from CVS pharmacy, I stopped behind a truck that had a bumpersticker slapped on it’s tail end.  It read:
The weather is here.  Wish you were beautiful.  So, today I looked the quotation up on Google to see if it had any specific significance.  Those words are the beginning lines to the choruses of one of Jimmy Buffett’s songs.  I don’t know anything about him.  After reading the lyrics, I am not curious to find out anything about him.  However, the following song caught me for it’s title.
 
Cheeseburger in paradise
By: jimmy buffett
1978
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losin’ weight without speed, eatin’ sunflower seeds
Drinkin’ lots of carrot juice and soakin’ up rays

But at night i’d had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zuchinni, fettucini or bulghar wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
Not too particular not too precise (paradise)
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise
