Godman

After My Man by Barbra Streisand
Lyrics by Channing Pollock, Maurice Yvain, Albert Willemetz and Jaques Charles

 

It cost me a lot

But there’s one thing that I’ve got,

The Godman.

Meher Godman.

 

Cold or wet,

Tired, you bet.

All of this I’ll soon forget

With the Godman.

 

He’s written a few books

But His look has got me hooked,

And I love Him.

Yes, I love Him.

 

Two or three times

Has He

Turned His gaze away from me,

But I love Him.

 

I don’t know why I should.

He beats me blue,

Lies to me, too.

What can I do?

 

Oh, Godman, I love Him so.

You’ll never know.

All my life is just despair

But I don’t care.

When He takes me in His arms,

The world is bright

All right.

 

What’s the difference if I say

I’ll go away

When I know I’ll come back

On my knees someday.

 

For whatever Godman is,

I am His forevermore.

 

Oh, Godman, I love Him so.

You’ll never know.

All my life is just despair

But I don’t care.

When He takes me in His arms,

The world is bright

All right.

 

What’s the difference if I say

I’ll go away

When I know I’ll come back

On my knees someday.

 

For whatever Godman is,

I am His forevermore.

 

For whatever Godman is,

I am His forevermore.
