1. Jesus, Mohammed, and Buddha were out in the hall;

†††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††† AA7

They were smoking and playing at dice; it was winner take all.

††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AA7

Then just when two thirds of the world was set up for a fall

†††† D††††††††††††††† A††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††† D†† AGA

A voice fromabove or within said, Wait, this is my call.

 

††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†† AGA

Chorus: God is whatever you need God to be

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AA7

God is much bigger than you and much smarter than me.

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AA7

God is pro-life; cause God started it all, naturally.

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† D†† AGA††† D†† AGA

God is pro-choice; God wanted our wills to be free.

2. The father the son and the Ghost dawdled under a tree.

†††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AA7

The Ghost said, Weíve got so much in common, why canít we just agree?

††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AA7

The Father said, Speak not unrighteousness, or youíd better flee.

†††††††† D††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† D†† AGA

The Son said, Donít talk like that, Daddy, thatís so B.C.††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

3. God is a Lutheran, a Baptist, a Papist;God will put on any costume to save us,

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A7††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

Sending us love like a breeze blowing in through the gloom and mist.

G††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

God is a Wiccan, a Sikh, a Bahai; God can do anything except hate or lie;

††††††††††† E††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E7††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††† A7

When push comes to shove, God is even a secular humanist.

 

††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†† AGA

Though Godís not what you want God to be - necessarily.

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††† A7
