  • 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 Writer/s: MICHAEL RUTHERFORD, PHIL COLLINS, TONY BANKS

  • Chris from SomewhereI stand corrected, it was Phil's "In the Air Tonight" (drops a cow on himself)
  • Chris from SomewhereJosh, I believe the song in question is "Tonight Tonight Tonight".
  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiKenny, you must be thinking of an earlier Collins or Genesis song. The Miami Vice TV series ended two years before this song and video came out.
  • Kenny from Los Angeles, CaI do believe that after this video came out, Miami Vice producers sought Phil Collins to be in an episode or two
  • George from Calumet City, IlBrilliance as usual from Genesis.
