Randy NewmanGod's Song

Cain slew abel, seth knew not why For if the children of israel were to multiply Why must any of the children die? So he asked the lord And the lord said: Man means nothing, he means less to me Than the lowliest cactus flower Or the humblest yucca tree He chases round this desert 'cause he thinks that's where i'll be That's why I love mankind I recoil in horror fro the foulness of thee From the squalor and the filth and the misery How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me That's why I love mankind The christians and the jews were having a jamboree The buddhists and the hindus joined on satellite tv They picked their four greatest priests And they began to speak They said, "lord, a plague is on the world Lord, no man is free The temples that we built to you Have tumbled into the sea Lord, if you won't take care of us Won't you please, please let us be? " And the lord said And the lord said I burn down your cities-how blind you must be I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we You all must be crazy to put your faith in me That's why I love mankind You really need me That's why I love mankind
