Good For God

Harry Nilsson, 1975

"Our Father, who art in Heaven ... eh ..."

The other day a friend of mine said, he said, that God's not even with us. He said that God is really dead. He said, "Oh pal, a fact's a fact! You can't believe that magic act!"

I said "I don't," and that was that.

Now I say, "Good for God! Good for God! He goes and makes the planet blue, and all the thanks he gets from you is, 'Look at all the poo-poo in the yard!' Good for God! That fella's life is very hard He knows each time a sparrow falls. Believe me, the answer always calls. Good for God! Good for God! I bet he's got a very hard job. I'm awfully glad I'm here to say He made it possible for me to be here to say 'Good for God!' -- Good for God! Good Lord! Good God Almighty! He got no mama! He got no papa! Good for God!"

Now the other day, another friend of mine said, he said, "The sun is going yellow. and pretty soon we'll all be dead!"

I said, "My friend ,what do you mean? You must be living in a museum, and things are never what they seem. Good for God! Good for God!"

Now if Truth is Truth, it's easy to know the Truth -- now that's the truth, so help me God! Good for God!

Good for God! Good for God! He's got a hard job. And before they put me in the hole, I pray to God I'll find a big loop-hole. I say, "Good for me, and good for God!"

Say, "Good for God!" ("Through Jesus Christ! Amen!") The man drove the little girls wild. ("Why'd he do that!?) You know it's all right, He's on our side. It must be looking good for us, you know what I mean? We should do the same for Him. It's okay, that's why they call him 'God', you know what I mean?
