I'll Bet He Was Cool Lyrics

by Savage Garden

You know every once in a while
I shoot the breeze, I spend my time
I talk about silly things

I like to talk about Jesus Christ
And 'cause I wonder what would happen
If He passed you by

Would you be scared?
Now, would you believe in him?
Would you bust your asses
To get him institutionalized?

Well, I bet He'd be cool
Well, I bet He be damn good looking
Well, I bet that He smelt divine
I'm not talking about Calvin Klein's obsession

That just one of those people
Smell good all the time
There's no reason why

What would He wear
Would He wear Tommy Hilfiger?
Or be Urban Outfitted?
Well, I don't think so

Well, I bet He liked Gaultier
Although you'd never find him in it
I bet He liked Gaultier

Lord, I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction
I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction
I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction

You know, every once and a while
I shoot the breeze, I spend my time
I talk about silly things

And tonight I'd like to talk
To you about Jesus Christ
And 'cause I wonder how we'd deal
If He just passed you by

Well, I bet He'd be a star
Well, I bet my Star Wars figures
He would be a movie star
A Quentin Tarantino, next-big-thing

Prima Donna, then he'd appear on Oprah
But you know what? I don't think so

But could you imagine Him
Hanging Piccadilly Circus
Time Square, the Walk of Fame
At Christies He could easily become a regular

Did you know what? I don't think so
Well, I bet my speeder bike
He'd turn his back on all of that

Lord, I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction
I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction
I need Your protection
Spend some time in my direction

Some people have just got it
You know, like standing next to Elvis Presley
Well, then multiply that feeling by 1 million
And you know what I'm talking about

'Cause I'll bet He was cool
Man, I bet that cat was
So damn good looking, baby
