temporary
by Eddie Murphy

Hey what ya gonna do?
After all the lies they told ya
Damn near everything they told you
Got to free your mind, open up your eyes
Yea!

Ain’t no angels no shoulders
The Pope ain't much and the devil’s just a lie
And even with your clout and money
When the Reaper comes we will kiss your ass goodbye
Yes we will

It’s temporary
Everything is only temporary
But God (God)
God is everlasting yeah!
It’s temporary
You and me are only temporary (Everlasting, yea)

It’s so much bigger than yourself
And you ain’t but a tiny tick of time
And those certificates for prestigious graduations
On your wall
When your time is up
Won't buy an ounce of time
Write your will

It’s temporary
You and me are only temporary
But God (God)
God is everlasting!
It’s temporary
Everything is only temporary (Everlasting, yea)

So all your good connections
It’s temporary
And all the bill collectors
It’s temporary
Ain’t no angels on no shoulders
It’s temporary
The Pope ain't much and the devil’s just a lie
It’s temporary
Said the Pope ain't much and the devil’s just a lie
It’s temporary
A Pope ain't much and the devil’s just a lie
