Man made the buildings that reach for the skyAnd man made the motorcar and learned how to flyBut he didn’t make the flowers and he didn’t make the treesAnd he didn’t make you and he didn’t make meAnd he got no right to turn us into machinesHe’s got no right at all’cause we are all god’s childrenAnd he got no right to change usOh, we gotta go back the way the good lord made us allDon’t want this world to change meI wanna go back the way the good lord made meSame lungs that he gave me to breath withSame eyes he gave me to see withOh, the rich man, the poor man, the saint and the sinnerThe wise man, the simpleton, the loser and the winnerWe are all the same to himStripped of our clothes and all the things we ownThe day that we are bornWe are all god’s childrenAnd they got no right to change usOh, we gotta go back the way the good lord madeOh, the good lord made us allAnd we are all his childrenAnd they got no right to change usOh, we gotta go back the way the good lord made us allYeah, we gotta go back the way the good lord made us all
