lyrics

God gave me this trouble
and I guess he got the right girl
God knows I deserve it
For I so love the world
the world and all of its pettiness
my pettiness and my pride
The world the world the world
the world is big and wide

God gave me this body
and sweet shade from under the vine
and in my place of retirement
I imagine the privilege is mine
to sleep so sweet and protected
while others should beg and pine

the skin and the body are blind
the skin is wrong, I know
I know that we belong
to the one who sees our souls

God gave me this singing
and I sing every day
and one day I'd like to thank him
by having something nice to say
oh I'd like to sing one selfless
sentence before I die

to sing it loud and high
I know that we belong
to the one who sees our souls
