Here you go - Stylophone tabs for Paradise :

However, the tabs which appear as 'X' are outside the Stylophone range (above 12) but those lines are a repeat of sections before, only played an octave higher. Play the notes of the similar lines and you'll sound OK.

The Stylophone keyboard 1 to 7 are notes A to G, then 8 to 12 are A to E of the next octave.  The '.5' notes are the sharp of the previous note (or the flat of the subsequent one), just like piano keys.

   11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10
   Oh oh oh oh oh oh
   8 - 7 - 8
   oh oh oh.
  
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7
   Oh oh oh oh oh oh
   5 - 4 - 3
   oh oh oh.
  
   11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10 - 8 - 7 - 8
   When she was just a gi--r----l,
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7 - 6 - 4 - 3
   she ex-pec-ted the wo-r-l--d.
   8 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10 - 8 - 7 - 8
   But it flew a-way from her re-a-c-h.
   4 - 6 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7 - 6 - 4 - 3
   So  she ran a-way in her sl-e-e--p.
  
   3 - 4 - 6 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 7
   Drea-med of pa-ra pa-ra pa-ra-dise.
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 7
   Pa-ra pa-ra pa-ra-dise.
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 7
   Pa-ra pa-ra pa-ra-dise.
   3 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 5 - 4 - 3
   E-very-time she closed her ey-es.
  
   11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10
   Oh oh oh oh oh oh
   8 - 7 - 8
   oh oh oh.
  
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7
   Oh oh oh oh oh oh
   5 - 4 - 3
   oh oh oh.
  
   11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10 - 8 - 7 - 8
   When she was just a gi--r----l,
   8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7 - 6 - 4 - 3
   she ex-pec-ted the wo-r-l--d.
   8 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 8 - 10 - 8 - 7 - 8
   But it flew a-way from her re-a-c-h.
   4 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 7 - 5 - 4 - 3
   And but-lets catch in her te-e--t-h.
  
   4 - 6 - 7
   Life goes on.
   8 - 4 - 6 - 7 - 8
   It gets so hea-vy,
   3 - 3 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 7 - 5 - 4 - 3
   the wheel breaks the but-ter-f--l-y.
   4 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 3 - 6 - 7
   E-very tear a wa-ter-fall.
  
   8 - 10 - 11
   In the night,
   11 - 11 - 10 - 8
   the stor-my night,
   8 - 8 - 8 - 8 - 7
   she closed her e-yes.
  
   8 - 10 - 11
   In the night,
   12 - 11 - 10 - 8
   the stor-my night,
   7 - 8 - 7 - 8 - 7
   a-way she fli-ed.
  
   11 - 11 - X - X - X - X - X - X - X - X

Just get hold of free sheet music (google is your friend) - the "keys" of the Stylophone have the notes marked on them.
