Genesis – Jesus He Knows Me lyrics

You see the face on the tv screen
Coming at you every sunday
See that face on the billboard
That man is me

On the cover of the magazine
There's no question why I'm smiling
You buy a piece of paradise
You buy a piece of me

Ill get you everything you wanted
Ill get you everything you need
Don't need to believe in hereafter
Just believe in me

Cos jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
And he's been telling me
Everything is alright

I believe in the family
With my ever loving wife beside me
But she don't know about my girlfriend
Or the man I met last night

Do you believe in god
Cos that's what I'm selling
And if you wanna get to heaven
Ill see you right

You wont even have to leave your house
Or get outta your chair
You don't even have to touch that dial
Cos I'm everywhere

And jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well he's been telling me
Everythings gonna be alright

Wont find me practising what I'm preaching
Wont find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles
If you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
Just do as I say, don't do as I do

I'm counting my blessings,
I've found true happiness
Cos I'm getting richer, day by day
You can find me in the phone book,
Just call my toll free number
You can do it anyway you want
Just do it right away

Therell be no doubt in your mind
Youll believe everything I'm saying
If you wanna get closer to him
Get on your knees and start paying

Cos jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well he's been telling me
Everythings gonna be alright, alright

Jesus he knows me
Jesus he knows me, you know...

    This is a clear indictment against corrupt televangelists when they were most active in the 1980s. It has the unfortunate side-effect of casting a bad light on all preachers of the Gospel, no matter how upright, moderate, faithful or genuine, and contributes to the attitude of some that all ministers are corrupt either sexually, morally, financially, or all three, as though a small minority of physicians guilty of malpractice means that the lot of them are immoral or incompetent, or both.

    Oh tis one is a totally hilarious slam on every televangelist that ever got his hand or whatever caught in the cookie jar. Most of us common folk understand and never expect ourselves to be anywhere near perfect, but these slime buckets preaching its possible to get close by sending their expense accounts money is just disturbing. Phil made it comical as he has a propensity to do and I loved him for it with this song.
