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
