"I was sitting in a coffee shop
staring at the metropolis on the wall.
I hard a voice call out to me
it wasn't the waiter's call.

I saw God!
He told me to say what I really feel.
I saw God!
He told me to say what I really mean.
To cut my hair and dye it green.
I saw God!

I was trying to think what to think
so I closed my eyes trying to search my soul.
Muzak was playing the the Rolling Stones
I want to be in rock and roll

I saw God!
He told me to say what I really mean.
I spoke to God!
He told me to feel what I really felt.
He told me to order the tuna melt.
I saw God!
I saw God!

I was touched by God
He told me art is everything.
Art is everywhere
In the cigarette, in the ash tray
and in the words we say.

I saw God!
I saw God!
I saw God!

He said, "I love you, my child."
I spoke to God.
He said, "My child, do as I say
Release your single on RCA."
I saw God!
I saw God!"
