Waters, Roger - What God Wants, Part III Lyrics

Don't be afraid, it's only business
The alien prophet sighed
The vulture and the magpie took
The cash box from its hook
The monkey in the corner wrote
The figures in his book
Crazed the checkout lady's fingers
Flash across the till
And the captain posts
The menu of the day
And in banks across the world
Christians Moslems Hindus Jews
And people of every
Race creed colour tint or hue
Get down on their knees and pray
The racoon and the groundhog
Neatly make up bags of change
But the monkey in the corner
Well he's slowly drifting out of range
Christ is freezing inside
The veterans cries
The hyenas break cover
And stream through the meadow
And the fog rolls in
Through his bottle of gin
So he picks up a stone
That looks like a bone
And the bullets fly
And the rivers run dry
And the fat girls sigh
And the network anchor persons lie
And the soldier's alone
In the video zone
But the monkey's not watching
He's slipped out to the kitchen
To pile the dishes
And answer the phone

    Dear Roger Waters I'm sitting here here in Temple Texas! Listening What GOD Wants. I saw Chris Grant in Denver Colorado. I was at the Pepsi Center in Denver on June 4th when you played! I was in the audience that night! The Worm?:) GOD

    I’m glad Roger Waters got the recognition he deserves for this album. It is his best work. A true master work. Cosmoscarl.

  16. Cosmoscarl Holloway

    Oh my god Roger! What a song, and Jeff Beck’s guitar solo is so heart wrenching. This song has made me cry several times. I’m glad it’s not just another rock and roll cliche. Cosmoscarl
