Turn Back, O Man Lyrics


by . From Godspell.


[GIBBON]
Turn back, O man
Forswear thy foolish ways
Old now is earth
And none may count her days
Yet thou, her child
Whose head is crowned with flames
Still will not hear
Thine inner God proclaims

Turn back, O man (is your seat comfortable sir?)
Turn back, O man (mmm, I like that)
Turn back, O man (can you take it?)
Forswear thy foolish ways
(See ya later I'm going to the front of the thee-AY-ter)

Earth might be fair
And all men glad and wise
Age after age their tragic empires rise
Built while they dream
And in that dreaming weep
Would man but wake
From out his haunted sleep

Turn back, O man...(i'll say it again)
Turn back, O man... (can you see from where you're sittin'?)
Turn back, O man... (hiya big boy)
Forswear thy foolish ways

[JESUS]
Earth shall be fair
And all her people one
Not till that hour
Shall God's whole will be done
Now, even now
Once more from earth to sky
Peels forth in joy
Man's old undaunted cry
Earth shall be fair
And all her people one

[GIBBON]
C'mere Jesus, I got something to show ya!

[CHORUS]
Turn back, oh man
Forswear thy foolish ways!
Old now is earth
And none may count her days
Yet thou, her child
Whose head is crowned with flames
Still will not hear
Thine inner God proclaims

Turn back, oh man
Turn back, oh man
Turn back, oh man
Forswear thy foolish ways!

[GIBBON]
Play it honey!
