God Laughs

Willie Nile

God wakes in the morning, has toast with his tea
He gets up without a warning, heads out to the sea
He goes down to the river, gets a boat with a sail
He's got things to deliver all day long I can hear him wail

God laughs, god cries
God looks for love between your eyes
God gives, god takes
God pumps your gas and slams your breaks
And why, because he's god

God walks to the station, gets mail by the pound
He goes home through the bone yard
Reads every letter when no one's around
He goes down to the market near the church with the bell
He works hard as a tour guide
Taking everybody through heaven and hell

God laughs, god cries
God looks for love between your eyes
God wails, god moans
God don't use fax or telephones
God drinks, god smokes
God plans to quit before he croaks
And why, because he's god

He goes home after a long day, watches news on channel 5
Sometime when it's over late at night you can hear him cry
He lays down after eleven in his bed by the sea
He lays down here in heaven dreams all night about you and me

God laughs, god cries
God looks for love between your eyes
God sits, god waits
God goes to bed and fornicates
God hears, god sees
God knows your tune and changes keys
God cheats, god steals
God crushes us beneath his wheels
God heals, god kills
God does it all for your cheap thrills
And why, because he god
