Strangers In Paradise
The Four Aces Lyrics

Take my hand
I'm a stranger in paradise
All lost in a wonderland
A stranger in paradise
If I stand starry-eyed
That's the danger in paradise
For mortals who stand beside an angel like you

I saw your face and I ascended
Out of the commonplace into the rare
Somewhere in space I hang suspended
Until I know there's a chance that you care

Won't you answer this fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for

But open your angel's arms
To this stranger in paradise
And tell him that he need be
A stranger no more

Although I had not hit my teen years at this time, this is the pop music that imprinted on my soul. Those days before the emergence of rock 'n roll are now long gone and part of another world, but it's often I visit that world via this kind of music.


Memories of the 1950's recalled on listening to this great song. Thanks for sharing this great version.


Don't forget to thank the Russian composer Alexander Borodin, whose Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor provided the melody for this song

This is a great version of this classic - even better than Tony Bennett's version in my opinion. Great lead vocal and harmonies. Love the jazzy latin percussion coming in halfway through too. Thanks for the upload.


Great lead -- Al Alberts -- and strong tight harmonies.  One of the very best pop vocal groups of the era.  Powerful tag on this one.  Love it.


@Vegasbabee Indeed, where are they now! Such a wonderful production, all but forgotten? Thankyou for posting Scout4Me1

This is the best version of all, in my opinion. I had their album when I was about 15 or 16 years and kept on playing this song. Tony Bennett's version is good, but this is better. I have this song in my iPhone and in my laptops - at home and at the office. It's like a medicine for me - once I play it, it would give me enough energy and inspiration.
