God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind) (上帝之歌(這就是我愛上帝的原因)) - Randy Newman

Written 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
