      Etta James - God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind) Música y Letra

      Cain slew Abel, Seth knew not why
      For if the children of Israel were to multiply
      Why must any of the children, why must they die?
      So he asked and the Lord and the Lord said:
      
      Man means nothing, he means less to me
      Than the lowliest cactus flower or the humblest yucca tree
      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
      Picked their four greatest priests
      And they began to speak
      
      And they said: "Lord, a plague is on the world
      Lord, no man is free
      The temples that we built to you
      Have tumbled down, fell into the sea"
      
      Lord, if you won't take care of us
      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 must all be crazy to put your faith in me
      
      That's why I love mankind, you really need me
      That's why I love mankind
