                [Intro]
G        C/G  G  C/G  G
D*  G    D*  G    D*  G
C/G      G  C/G

[Verse 1]
       G               D               Em           C
When I tell you that I love you, don't test my love
  G            C/G
Accept my love
      G            C/G
Don't test my love
       C             D               G
'Cause maybe I don't love you all that much

[Interlude]
D*  G   D*

[Verse 2]
      G                D               Em           C
Don't ask what kind of music I'm gonna play tonight
     G            C/G
Just stay a while
             G            C/G
Hear for yourself a while
                G            D                   Em      C
And if you must put me in a box make sure it's a big box
             G       C/G
With lots of windows
              G             C/G
And a door to walk through
                G          C/G
And a nice high chimney
          G           D         Em                  C
So we can burn, burn, burn everything that we don't like
              G     C/G
And watch the ashes
          G      C/G
Fly up to heaven
                     G     C/G
Maybe all the way to India
    G         D  Em
I'd like that

[Interlude]
|D*  |G  |D*  |

[Verse 3]
G               D          Em         C
All the ancient kings came to my door
                               G             D                      Em        C
They said, "Do you wanna be an ancient king, too?" I said, "Oh yes, very much
               G                C/G
But I think my timing's wrong"
                    G        C/G
They said, "Time is relative
                   G          C/G
Or did you misread Einstein?"
                    G         C/G
I said, "You really mean it?"
                                G             C/G
They said, "What do ya think we come here for
            G           D         Em
Our goddamn health or something?"

[Interlude]
|D*  |G  |D*  |

[Verse 4]
G           D               Em      C
Everybody's waiting for the Messiah
             G       C/G
The Jews are waiting
               G       C/G
Christians are waiting
         G       C/G
Also the Muslims
                      G       C/G
It's like everybody's waiting
                       G         C/G
They've been waiting a long time
             G            C/G
I know how I hate to wait
                G                C/G
Like even for a bus or something
             G          C/G
An important phone call
               G      C/G
So I can just imagine
             G       C/G
How darned impatient
                G         C/G
Everybody must be getting
                G        C/G
So I think it's time now
          G           C/G
Time to reveal myself
         G       C/G
I am the Messiah
         G       C/G  C/G  C/G
I am the Messiah
                 G              C/G
Yes, I think you heard me right
         G       C/G
I am the Messiah
                      G         C/G
I was gonna wait till next year
                G              C/G
Build up the suspense a little
                 G            C/G
Make it a really big surprise
            G          C/G
But I could not resist
                                   G          C/G
It's like when you've got a really big secret
                        G            C/G
You're just bursting to tell someone
                    G              C/G
It was sort of like that with this
                  G        C/G
And now that I've told you
                         G       C/G
I feel this great weight lifted
                   G     C/G
Doctor Nesbaum was right
        G         C/G
He's my therapist
          G                 D  Em
He said, "Get it out in the open

[Interlude]
|D*  |G  |D*  |

[Verse 5]
        G         D          Em     C
I spent ten whole days in Jerusalem
        G      C/G
Mmm, Jerusalem
         G      C/G
Sweet Jerusalem
                  G     C/G
And all I ate was olives
            G     C/G
Nothing but olives
             G      C/G
Mountains of olives
         G             C/G
It was a good ten days
   G          C/G
I like olives
       G        C/G
I like you, too

[Verse 6]
       G               D
When I tell you that I love you
      Em           C
Don't test my love
  G           C/G
Accept my love
      G            C/G
Don't test my love
      C             D                 G     D*  C*  G
Cause maybe I don't love you all that much
