IT WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE THIS BIG MAGILLAH
JUST SOME FUN UNTIL A BETTER DEAL CAME THROUGH THE DOOR
CREATING THIS CREATION WAS JUST AN AVOCATION
AN AMUSEMENT, A DISTRACTION, NOTHING MORE
BUT MY LITTLE HOBBY'S GOTTEN OUT OF HAND
AND I CAN'T UNDERSTAND JUST WHERE IT WENT BERSERK
BUT I SWEAR THIS IS THE LAST TIME I EVER LET SOME PASTIME
TAKE CONTROL OF ME AND START TO FEEL LIKE WORK

IT'S NOT EASY BEING GOD
WHEN THEY PITCHED THIS IT SEEMED HITCHLESS, SO I GAVE IT THE NOD
DON'T THEY KNOW THE RISK I TOOK? 'CAUSE THERE'S NO INSTRUCTION BOOK
FOR BEING GOD

IT'S NOT EASY BEING GOD
IT MAKES ME QUEASY TRYING TO PLEASE THE
ENTREATIES OF EACH CLOD
I GET PRAYERS I JUST CAN'T ANSWER - MAKE ME PRETTY, MAKE ME RICH
CURE MY OLD GRANDMOTHER'S CANCER, KILL MY BOSS THAT SON OF A BITCH
I'M GREAT, AND GOOD AND ALL THAT ROT BUT JEHOVAH CLAUS I'M NOT
IT AIN'T EASY BEING GOD

IT'S ALL MORE THAN I BARGAINED FOR
AND THOUGH I'M NOT A LORD WHO'D NORMALLY DESERT
EACH GENOCIDE, EACH MASSACRE, EACH FAMINE, EACH WAR
MAKES ME THINK THAT I SHOULD END IT ALL BEFORE SOMEBODY GETS HURT

IT'S NOT EASY BEING ME
WITH ABOUT 5 BILLION IRRITATING PROGENY
I MADE IT CONGEAL IN LESS THAN A WEEK,
IT WAS SUCH A SMALL DEAL, I PLANNED TO GIVE IT TO THE MEEK
BUT IT WOULD JUST AMAZE YA HOW FROM AFRICA TO ASIA
ALL THE WAY UP TO THE WEARY IRISH SOD
ALL THEIR MESS-UPS I'M SUPPOSED TO TIDY
SO WHO AM I, THE GREAT ALMIGHTY?
WELL, YES, I GUESS, BUT IT AIN'T EASY BEING GOD

ALL I EVER WANTED WAS A LITTLE EDEN
A PLACE TO CULTIVATE FLORA AND FAUNA
I GREW VOLTAIRES, MICHAELANGELOS, BIKINI GIRLS FROM SWEDEN!
I HAD MY SLUMPS, MY DONALD TRUMPS -- AND OF COURSE MADONNA
BUT BY NOW THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE THEIR FUTURE BRIGHT
AND WHY THEY JUST CAN'T GET IT RIGHT, WELL, I JUST CAN'T QUITE GET
OR WHY IT'S ME THAT THEY INVOKE
WHEN THERE'S SOME FOLK THEY WANT TO CROAK
PERHAPS I OUGHT TO WRAP IT, STRIKE THE LIGHTS, THE PROPS, THE SET...

IT'S NOT EASY BEIN' ME
THERE'S NO GUIDE TO DECIDE THE FATE OF THIS CALAMITY
I COULD TEAR THE WORLD ASUNDER, SEND DESTRUCTION, DEATH AND PAIN
BUT THEN AGAIN I WONDER IF IT'S REALLY WORTH THE STRAIN
AM I ANGRY, AM I SPITEFUL, OR CHARMING AND DELIGHTFUL
DO I SMITE TONIGHT, OR DO I SPARE THE ROD?
KING OF KINGS, THAT'S WHAT MY ACT IS, BUT THE SAD AND LONELY FACT IS
IT'S NOT EASY BEIN' GOD

IT'S NOT EASY, NOT EASY I WORRY I WORK AND I SWEAT
IT'S NOT EASY, NOT EASY, AND THEY HAVEN'T LEARNED A THING YET
THEY IGNORE ME THEN IMPLORE ME
TO AID THEIR CRUSADE OR JIHAD...
IT'S NOT EASY BEING GOD
