Elton John - It's Tough to be a God

  • Elton John - It's Tough to be a God


    I hardly think I'm qualified
    To come across all sanctified
    I just don't cut it with the cherubim
    The town's already on it's knees
    Being worshipped is a breeze
    I barely know the words to any hymn

    Listen if we don't comply
    With the locals' wishes
    I can see is being sacrificed or stuffed
    Let's be Gods, the perks are great
    El Dorado on a plate
    Local feelings should not be rebuffed

    It's great to be a God
    Tread where mortals have not trod
    Be defied when really you're a sham
    Be an object of devotion
    Be the subject of psalms
    It's a terrifying notion
    All those prayers and thos salaams
    Any normal man would bridle if he's forced to be an idol
    And a normal man's exactly what I am

    All the same it's pretty clear
    The bastards don't keep much up here
    They must have zillions under lock and key
    But Gods can force then to unleash
    Enough to make us nouveau riche
    Beyond our wildest dreams so follow me

    Can't you see I won't relax
    If religious maniacs
    Tell me I'm all-powerful and sublime
    How can I be their belief
    When I'm lying through my teeth
    Why don't we just say some other time

    It's great to be a God
    But if you get the people's nod
    Count your blessings, keep them sweet is my advice
    Be nirvana be salvation
    Be all things to all men
    Butter up your congregation
    Every Sunday score a ten
    All the alternative is dire
    Simply frying pan to fire
    So sign on two new Gods for paradise
