Search for Paradise
rom the Cinerama production “Search for Paradise” produced by Lowell Thomas and directed by Otto Lang. Other songs from the production are “The Happy Land of Hunza,” “Shalimar,” and “Kashmir.” The cover illustration shows a multinational horde of people with men wearing Arab and Afghan headgear in a caravan of elephants heading for the far-off city (Shangri La?).

CHORUS:
Come ye discontented
Come and SEARCH FOR PARADISE.
Some day you will find it if you try.
Free from the world of material things;
Free to unfold your adventurous wings
Come ye on a journey to the sky
Find it, yes, you’ll find it—paradise, paradise
Somewhere in the distance
There’s the promise of a dreamlike existance
Somewhere in the nowhere far away.
Yours to discover and make it your own,
Yours to uncover and know the unknown
All ye discontented
Come and SEARCH FOR PARADISE.
