Gods Song  Randy Newman


[Am] Cain slew Abel;
Seth knew not why.
[Dm] For if the.
Children of Israel,
Were to multi-[Am]ply;
Why must [E7]any of,
The [Am]child-[E7]ren [Am]die?
So he asked the Lord,
[E] And the Lord said;

Chorus 1:

[Am] Man means [E7]nothing,
He [Am]means [E7]less to [Am]me, [A7]
[Dm] Than the lowliest,
[A7] Cactus flower,
Or the [Dm]humblest [A7]Yucca [Dm]tree.

He [Am]chases round this [E7]desert,
'Cos he [Am]thinks,
That's [C7]where I'll [F7]be;
[Am] That's why I [E7]love man-[Am]kind.[E7]
[Am] I recoil in [E7]horror,
From the [Am]foul-[E7]ness of [Am]thee. [A7]
[Dm] From the squalor and the [A7]filth,
[Dm] And the [A7]mise-[Dm]ry.
How we [Am]laugh up in here in [E7]heaven,
At the [Am]prayers you [C7]offer [F7]me;
[Am] That's why I [E7]love man-[Am]kind.[E7]
Verse 2:

[Am] The Christians and the Jews,
Were having a jamboree,
[Dm] The Buddhists and the Hindu's,
Joined on [Am]satellite TV.
They picked their,
[E7] Four greatest priests,
And [Am]they be-[E7]gan to [Am]speak;
They said;

[Am] "Lord, a plague is on the world,
Lord, no man is free,
The [Dm]temples that we built to you,
Have [Am]tumbled into the sea.
Lord, if you won't take [E7]care of us;
Won't you [Am]please,
Please [E7]let us [Am]be?"
And the [Am]Lord said, [E]
And the [C]Lord said; [E]

Chorus 2:

[Am] I burn down your cities,
How [E7]blind you must [Am]be. [A7]
[Dm] I take from you your [A7]children,
And you say;
[Dm] "How [A7]blessed are [Dm]we".
[Am] You all must be [E7]crazy,
To [Am]put your [C7]faith in [F7]me;

[Am] That's why I [E7]love man-[Am]kind;
You [Dm]really need me,
[Am] That's why I [E7]love man-[Am]kind.
