It's a Randy Newman World

Maybe this should be called Bush's Song...

God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind)

by Randy Newman

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 from 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
