When your race is run 
And your day is done 
        D         G 
And you have your fun 
Or had any 
When the die is cast 
And you're fading fast 
As you breathe your last 
Are you ready? 
Are you waiting for somebody to kiss it

God-fearing family man 
When the lies are drawn 
And your time has come 
And your mind has gone 
Will you miss it? 
When you add the score 
And you want some more 
Well the final straw 
Is there isn't 
Are you waiting for somebody to kiss it better? 
You'll have to wait until the day there's a twelfth of never 
When you look in the mirror your face is quite contented 
You're looking cute in the suit that you bought on the trip to Milan 
And you don't really care if you could be called self centered, oh no 
You've got your eyes on the prize and you're a God-fearing family man 
God-fearing family man

                        If money            talks well yours is 
E                            A 
Taxation laws were meant for ?? 
E                                    A  D 
What can't be bought, it ain't worth having 
           A   D 
So keep on grabbing 
While you can 
What you can 
While you can 
Coz you can 
Are you thinking that you're gonna be here forever? 
Delay your fate until the day there's a twelfth of never? 
Well the world's in a mess but your own's completely ordered 
You put it down to the fact you're in charge of a heavenly plan 
You keep an eye on the numbers and find it's all too sordid 
Pat yourself on the back coz you're a God-fearing family man 
A God-fearing family man 
You're a God-fearing family man
