I impersonate God for a few minutes in this one (very poorly I might add). This song was used in the film ‘Handsome Harry’.



It was a rush I had no time
to make the Earth, the heavens and all mankind
I had a plan so unique
Be it for better or for worse, but I only had a week
just 7 days, 7 days, 7 days

So I started working on day and night
threw in a sky of blue and some clouds of white
I raised the mountains and poured the seas
made the soil dark for growing and I planted all the trees
in 7 days, in 7 days, just 7 days

Oh 7 days
Don’t you know
what makes the summer breezes blow?
Oh 7 days
Can you see
that nothing ever happens accidentally, no no

Then I took it easy for a day
I lit the sun and every star in the Milky Way
and by late that afternoon
I gave the Earth a little sister and called her the moon
I put the fishes in the seas
made all the animal species
including “creepy crawly things you would not believe…”
no no…


And finally then I made the one
In my own image and I knew my work had just begun
I took a break on my estate
proud of all I did create
In 7 days In 7 days, 7 days…

…My Lord
