[Verse]
Cm
 Cain slew Abel; Seth knew not why
Fm                                              Cm
 For if the children of Israel, were 'sposed to multiply
Cm         G7         Cm   G7  Cm
  Why must any of the children die?
      Cm             G7
So he asked the Lord, and the Lord said


[Chorus]
Cm         G7      Cm        G7      Cm  C7
 Man means nothing; he means less to me
Fm                 C7            Fm              C7     Fm
 Than the lowliest cactus flower, or the humblest Yucca tree
Cm                    G7              Cm            Eb7        Ab7
 He chases round this desert, 'cos he thinks that's where I'll be
Cm            G7       Cm   G7
 That's why I love mankind


[Chorus]
Cm           G7     Cm        G7          Cm   C7
 I recoil in horror, from the foulness of thee
Fm                        C7    Fm       C7  Fm
 From the squalor and the filth, and the misery
Cm                          G7             Cm         Eb7     Ab7
 How we laugh up in here in heaven, at the prayers you offer me
Cm            G7     [ Cm ]
 That's why I love mankind


[Interlude]

[Verse]
Cm                           Cm
 The Christians and the Jews, were having a jamboree,
Fm                                      Cm
 The Buddhists and the Hindus, joined on satellite TV
Cm                               G7
 They picked their four greatest priests,
Cm          G7     Cm
 And they began to speak


[Verse]
                   Cm                     Cm
They said "Lord, a plague is on the world; Lord, no man is free
Fm                                Cm
 The temples that we built to you, have tumbled into the sea
Cm                      G7                    Cm             G7     Cm
Lord, if you won't take care of us, won't you please, please let us be?"
        Cm        G7
And the Lord said
        Eb          G
And the Lord said


[Chorus]
Cm                G7     Cm    G7             Cm  C7
 I burn down your cities;  how blind you must be
Fm                    C7                     Fm   C7          Fm
 I take from you your children, and you say; "How blessed are we!"
Cm               G7    Cm           Eb7       Ab7
 You all must be crazy, to put your faith in me
Cm            G7       Cm        Fsus4     Fm
 That's why I love man-kind; you really need me
Cm            G7      [ Cm ]
 That's why I love mankind
