It’s Tough to Be a God (Movie Version) Lyrics

By Kevin Kline & Kenneth Branagh

[Verse 1: Tulio & Miguel]
I hardly think I’m qualified
To come across all sanctified
I just don’t cut it with the cherubim
(Tulio, what are you talking about?)
There again they’re on their knees
Being worshipped is a breeze
Which rather suits us in the interim

(The interim, the interim, that’s me and him
Oh my god!)

[Chorus]
It’s tough to be a god
Tread where mortals have not trod
Be deified when really you’re a sham
Be an object of devotion
Be the subject of psalms
It’s a rather touching notion
All those prayers and those salaams
And who am I to bridle if I’m forced to be an idol?
If they say that I’m a god that’s what I am!

[Verse 2: Tulio & Miguel]
What’s more, if we don’t comply with the locals’ wishes
I can see us being sacrificed or stuffed
(You have a point, that’s very good thinking)
So let’s be gods, the perks are great!
(Yeah!)
El Dorado on a plate
(Thank you)
Local feeling should not be rebuffed
Never rebuffed
A-never rebuff a local feeling, no, my friend!

[Chorus]
It’s tough to be a god
But if you get the peoples’ nod
Count your blessings
(Yeah!)
Keep ’em sweet
That’s our advice
(It’s great advice!)
Be a symbol of perfection
Be a legend, be a cult
Take their praise, take the collection
As the multitudes exalt
Don a supernatural habit
We’d be crazy not to grab it! (You got it!)
So sign up two new gods for paradise
Paradise!
