Testo its tough to be a god - elton john

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
