Dm For if the. Children of Israel, Am Were to multi-ply; E7 Why must any of, Am E7 Am The child-ren die? So he asked the Lord, E And the Lord said; Chorus 1: Am E7 Man means nothing, Am E7 Am A7 He means less to me, Dm Than the lowliest, A7 Cactus flower, Dm A7 Dm Or the humblest Yucca tree. Am E7 He chases round this desert, Am 'Cos he thinks, C7 F7 That's where I'll be; Am E7 Am E7 That's why I love man-kind. Am E7 I recoil in horror, Am E7 Am A7 From the foul-ness of thee. Dm A7 From the squalor and the filth, Dm A7 Dm And the mise-ry. Am E7 How we laugh up in here in heaven, Am C7 F7 At the prayers you offer me; Am E7 Am E7 That's why I love man-kind.
