"Jesus He Knows Me" as written by and Michael/collins Rutherford....
You see the face on the TV screen
Coming at you every Sunday
See that face on the billboard
That man is me

On the cover of the magazine
There's no question why I'm smiling
You buy a piece of paradise
You buy a piece of me

I'll get you everything you wanted
I'll get you everything you need
Don't need to believe in hereafter
Just believe in me

'Cause Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
And he's been telling me
Everything is alright

I believe in the family
With my ever loving wife beside me
But she don't know about my girlfriend
Or the man I met last night

Do you believe in god
'Cause that's what I'm selling
And if you want to get to heaven
I'll see you right

You won't even have to leave your house
Or get outta your chair
You don't even have to touch that dial
'Cause I'm everywhere

And Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well he's been telling me
Everything's gonna be alright

Won't find me practicing what I'm preaching
Won't find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles
If you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
Just do as I say, don't do as I do

I'm counting my blessings,
I've found true happiness
'Cause I'm getting richer, day by day
You can find me in the phone book,
Just call my toll free number
You can do it anyway you want
Just do it right away

There'll be no doubt in your mind
You'll believe everything I'm saying
If you want to get closer to him
Get on your knees and start paying

'Cause Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
I've been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well he's been telling me
Everything's gonna be alright, alright

'Cause Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Oh yes he knows me and he knows I'm right
I've been talking to Jesus all my life
And he's been telling me everything is alright, alright

Jesus he knows me, Jesus he knows, know
Jesus he knows me, Jesus he knows, know
Jesus he knows me, Jesus he knows, know

    General CommentAs soon as someone requests money to have a certain "advantage" from God or whomever, you NEED TO RUN THE OTHER WAY! Pure and simple!

    General CommentProbably Billy Graham, as he was involved in some controversy in the late 80s/early 90s.

    General CommentI saw an interview with Phil Collins where he said he wasn't trying to offend religious people but that he was simply taking on the phonies like Benny Hinn and Jim Bakker.

    Song MeaningThis song has nothing to do with atheism. This song came out around the time when there was scandals going on within some Christian churches here in the USA. While there was scandals going on in some churches, mainly in the televangelist tv programs, it certainly does not represent other Christian churches.
    When it comes down to it, we really can only know the truth about this song from the person who created it :)

    General Comment"Do as I say, don't do as I do."

    That line pretty much sums up preachers in general if you ask me, whether they're televangelists or your everyday pastor, seeing as how asking people for money is generally looked down upon if you're not a "spiritual leader".

    General CommentThere's a clip of Phil Collins discussing televangelists on the program "Room 101". On the program, celebrities discuss their worst fears or hates and Phil chose televanglists. In the video, it appears that one of the televangelists he was dressed up as was a person called Ernest Angley:

    During the choruses, he dresses up as someone else but you can't really see who.

    My InterpretationI think the underlying message of this song is to beware of false witnesses.
