Текст песни: It’s Tough to Be a God (Randy Newman )

[Elton John:]
I hardly think I'm qualified
To come across all sanctified
I just don't cut it with the cherubim
The town's already on it's knees
Being worshipped is a breeze
I barely know the words to any hymn
[Randy Newman:]
Listen if we don't comply
With the locals' wishes ICan see is being sacrificed or stuffed
Let's be gods, the perks are great
El Dorado on a plate
Local feelings should not be rebuffed
[Elton John:]
It's tough to be a god
Tread where mortals have not trod
Be defied when really you're a sham
[Randy Newman and Elton John:]
Be an object of devotion
Be the subject of psalms
It's a terrifying notion
All those prayers and those salaams
Any normal man would bridle
If he's forced to be an idol
And a normal man's exactly what I am
[Elton John:]
All the same it's pretty clear
The scoundrels don't keep much up here
They must have zillions under lock and key
But gods can force then to unleash
Enough to make us nouveau riche
Beyond our wildest dreams so follow me
[Randy Newman:]
Can't you see I won't relax
If religious maniacs
Tell me I'm all-powerful and sublime
How can I be their belief
When I'm lying through my teeth
Why don't we just say some other time
[Elton John:]
It's tough to be a god
But if you get the people's nod
Count your blessings,
Keep them sweet is my advice
[Randy Newman and Elton John:]
Be nirvana be salvation
Be all things to all men
Butter up your congregation
Every Sunday score a ten
The alternative is dire
Simply frying pan to fire
So sign on two new gods for paradise
