Pop-rock group My First Band will compete in Finland’s Eurovision national final Uuden Musiikin Kilpailiu (UMK) 2017 with the song “Paradise”. The song is a cheerful pop tune where the singer alarmingly promises that he will “leave you paralysed/When I kiss your paradise”.

The song tells the story of a man who is in love with his bae — someone who perhaps has been putting up some resistance. He urges, “Baby don’t run, please baby don’t fight.”

While the song never elaborates as to what a “paradise” is, we can guess that it belongs to the same school of double entendre songwriting as lines like “going downtown”.

The chorus has the cheerful request, “I wanna see you satisfied/So let me kiss your paradise”, but then takes things to a darker corner with the unusual claim that “Imma leave you paralysed/When I kiss your paradise”.

Let’s hope that My First Band’s seduction technique doesn’t require a trip to the emergency room!

“Paradise” – My First Band (lyrics)

Oh I, I, I, I
I wanna see you satisfied
So let me kiss your paradise, paradise

Oh I, I, I, I
Imma leave you paralysed
When I kiss your paradise, paradise

Don’t gimme that red light
Wanna give me all tonight
Holding on to you, I’m holding

Let me show you the delight
Baby don’t run, please baby don’t fight
I’m working on my appetite

Don’t you know I’m falling, falling, falling, falling for you
Can’t you see I’m falling, falling down in front of you

So don’t gimme that red light
I just wanna have a bite
Holding on to you, I’m holding

So I, I, I, I
I wanna see you satisfied
So let me kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
Imma leave you paralysed
When I kiss your paradise, paradise

Imma do you, Imma do right
Imma show you a good time tonight
‘Cause honey, we golden

You wanna go all the way
All the way or no way at all
Holding on to you, I’m holding

Don’t you know I’m falling, falling, falling, falling for you
Can’t you see I’m falling, falling down in front of you

So I, I, I, I
I wanna see you satisfied
So let me kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
Imma leave you paralysed
When I kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
I wanna see you satisfied
So let me kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
Imma leave you paralysed
When I kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
So let me kiss your paradise, paradise

I, I, I, I
Imma leave you paralysed
When I kiss your paradise, paradise
Yeah
