God's Gift To Man
Tom Petty
Well I met him in the Navy
He was ahead of his glass
She was a cute little thing
He liked the way she shook her glass
And they went out to Texas,
And they bought some land
And they settled in a mobile home
By a taco stand

He was doin' things he didn't understand
There was no way to explain it
She was God's gift to man

Well he got a promotion
And he bought himself a color tv
Had the cable put in and he
Watched a round of Jeopordy
And they sat in the evening and they watched
The sun go down
Yeah everything was good and
They were living on the outside of town

Time went by
And he didn't understand
She was God's gift to man

Yeah baby, tell me
Don't it feel good
Don't you know that we're livin'
Just like a little boy should
All right!

Well she went out to Houston
Where she was livin' in sin
Well he built up this building
But nobody moved in
She wound up in El Paso
On the streets again
It was hard to take it
But sometimes you just can't win

It was after a little while
And he couldn't understand
She was God's gift to man

Well I seen her on tv
Just a couple of nights ago
She was doin' a commercial
Smilin' with some Ivory soap
But I knew inside her heart
Was black as coal
But there ain't no way to replace
The lovin' that little girl stole

Yeah one day she got it comin'
And she won't understand
She was God's gift to man

Yeah I've been doin' things
I don't understand
Cause she's God's gift to man
