ACT 1

Heaven On Their Minds



JUDAS
My mind is clearer now.
At last all too well I can see where we all soon will be.
If you strip away the myth from the man,
You will see where we all soon will be.
Jesus!
You've started to believe
The things they say of you.
You really do believe
This talk of God is true.
All all the good you've done
Will soon get swept away.
You've begun to matter more than the things you say.

Listen Jesus I don't like what I see.
All I ask is that you listen to me.
And remember, I've been your right hand man all along.
You have set them all on fire.
They think they've found the new Messiah,
And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong.

I remember when this whole thing began.
No talk of God then, we called you a man.
And believe me, my admiration for you hasn't died.
But every word you say today
Get's twisted 'round some other way.
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied.

Nazareth, your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
Like his father carving wood
He'd have made good.
Tables, chairs, and oaken chest would have suited Jesus best.
He'd have caused nobody harm, no-one alarm.

Listen Jesus, do you care for your race?
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied; have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd.
For we are getting much too loud.
And they'll crush us if we go too far.

Listen Jesus, to the warning I give.
Please remember that I want us to live.
But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour.
All your followers are blind.
Too much heaven on their minds.
It was beautiful but now it's sour.
Yes it's all gone sour......

What's the Buzz



APOSTLES

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

JESUS
Why should you want to know?
Don't you mind about the future?
Don't you try to think ahead?
Save tomorrow for tomorrow.
Think about today instead.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

^ JESUS
I could give you facts and figures.
I could give you plans and forecasts.
Even tell you where I'm going.


APOSTLES
When do we ride into Jerusalem?

JESUS
Why should you want to know?
Why are you obsessed with fighting
Times and fates you can't defy?
If you knew the path we're riding,
You'd understand it less than I.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

^ MARY MAGDALENE
Let me try to cool down your face a bit.

JESUS
That feels nice, so nice....
Mary that is good -
While you prattle through your supper -
Where and when and who and how
She alone has tried to give me
What I need right here and now.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

Strange Thing Mystifying



JUDAS

It seems to me a strange thing, mystifying
That a man like you could waste his time on women of her kind.
Yes, I can understand that she amuses,
But to let her stroke you, kiss your hair, is hardly in your line.

It's not that I object to her profession,
But she doesn't fit in well, with what you teach and say.
It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent.
They only need a small excuse to put us all away.

JESUS
Who are you to criticize her?
Who are you to despise her?
Leave her, leave her let her be now.
Leave her, leave her, she's with me now.
If your slate is clean, then you can throw stones.
If your slate is not, then leave her alone.

I'm amazed that men like you can be so shallow, thick and slow.
There is not a man among you who knows or cares if I come or go.

ALL (save Judas and Jesus)
No, you're wrong! You're very wrong!
No, you're wrong, You're very wrong!
How can you say that?
How can you say that!?

JESUS
Not one, not one of you!
^

Everything's Alright



MARY MAGDALENE
Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine,
And we want you to sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without you tonight.
If we try, we'll get by, so forget all about us tonight.

^ APOSTLES' WIVES
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

MARY MAGDALENE
Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you, and anoint you...
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh.
Then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
And it's cool, and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet.
Close your eyes, close your eyes
And relax, think of nothing tonight.

^ APOSTLES' WIVES
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

JUDAS
Woman your fine ointment, brand new and expensive
Could have been saved for the poor.
Why has it been wasted? We could have raised maybe
Three hundred silver pieces or more.
People who are hungry, people who are starving
They matter more than your feet and hair.

^ MARY MAGDALENE
Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine,
And we want you to sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without you tonight.
If we try, we№ll get by, so forget all about us tonight.

^ APOSTLES' WIVES
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

JESUS
Surely you're not saying we have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always, pathetically struggling
Look at the good things you've got.
Think while you still have me!
Move while you still see me!
You'll be lost, you'll be so sorry when I'm gone.

^ MARY MAGDALENE
Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you...
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh.
Then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet.
Close your eyes, close your eyes, and relax....

APOSTLES' WIVES
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes......

And The We Are Decided

(Included only in the motion picture)



CAIAPHAS

We've been sitting on the fence for far too long.

ANNAS
Why let him upset us? Caiaphas, let him be.
All those imbeciles will see he really doesn't matter.

CAIAPHAS
But Jesus is important! We've let him go his way before.
And while he starts a major war, we theorize and chatter.

^ ANNAS
He's just another scripture thumping hack from Galilee.

CAIAPHAS
The difference is they call him King. The difference frightens me.

What about the Roman's? When they see Jesus crowned
Do you think they'll stand around cheering and applauding?
What about our people? If they see we've lost our nerve,
Don't you think that they deserve something more rewarding?

^ ANNAS

They've got what they want. They think so anyway.
If he's what they want, why take their toy away?

CAIAPHAS
Put yourself in my place.
I cannot let my hands be tied. I am law and order.
What about our priesthood? Don't you see that we could fall?
If we are to last at all, we cannot be divided.

ANNAS
Then say so to the council, but don't rely on subtlety.
Frighten them, or they won't see.

CAIAPHAS
Then we are decided?

ANNAS
Then we are decided.
^

This Jesus Must Die



PRIEST 1

Good Caiaphas, the council waits for you.
The Pharisees and priests are here for you.

CAIAPHAS
Ah, gentlemen, you know why we are here.
We've not much time, and quite a problem here.

MOB (outside)
Hosanna! Superstar!
Hosanna! Superstar!

^ ANNAS
Listen to the howling mob of blockheads in the street!
A trick or two with lepers, and the whole towns on its feet.

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

MOB (outside)
Jesus Christ ...Superstar!

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

MOB (outside)
Tell us that you're who they say you are!

PRIEST 2
The man is in town right now to whip up some support

PRIEST 3
A rabble rousing mission that I think we should abort.

^ ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

MOB (outside)
Jesus Christ Superstar!

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

PRIEST 2
Look Caiaphas -they're right outside our yard!

PRIEST 3
Quick Caiaphas-go call the Roman guard!

CAIAPHAS
No wait!
We need a more permanent solution to our problem.

^ ANNAS
What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth?
Miracle wonderman, hero of fools.

PRIEST 3
No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans.....

CAIAPHAS
One thing I'll say for him - Jesus is cool.

ANNAS
We dare not leave him to his own devices.
His half-witted fans will get out of control.

PRIEST 3
But how can we stop him? His glamour increases
By leaps every minute, he's top of the poll.

CAIAPHAS
I see bad things arising.
The crowd crown him king; which the Romans would ban.
I see blood and destruction,
Our elimination because of one man.

Blood and destruction because of one man.

^ ALL (inside)
Because, because, because of one man.

CAIAPHAS
Our elimination because of one man.

ALL (inside)
Because, because, because of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of one man.

PRIEST 3
What then to do about this Jesusmania?

^ ANNAS
How do we deal with this carpenter king?

PRIEST 3
Where do we start with a man who is bigger
Than John was when John did his baptism thing?

CAIAPHAS
Fools! You have no perception!
The stake we are gambling are frighteningly high.
We must crush him completely,
So like John before him, this Jesus must die.
For the sake of the nation, this Jesus must die.

^ ALL (inside)
Must die, must die, this Jesus must die.

CAIAPHAS
So like John before him, this Jesus must die

ALL (inside)
Must die, must die, this Jesus must, Jesus must, Jesus must die!

Hosanna



CROWD

Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you smile at me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

CAIAPHAS
Tell the rabble to be quiet, we anticipate a riot.
This common crowd is much too loud.
Tell the mob who sing your song that they are fools and they are wrong.
They are a curse. They should disperse.

CROWD
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC you're alright by me.
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

JESUS
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting.
If every tongue were still the noise would still continue.
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing:

^ CROWD and JESUS
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you fight for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

JESUS
Sing me your songs, but not for me alone.
Sing them for yourselves for you are blessed
There is not one of you who cannot win the Kingdom:
The slow, the suffering, the quick, the dead.

CROWD and JESUS
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you die for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

Simon Zealotes



CROWD

Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.
Jesus I am on your side.
Kiss me, kiss me, Jesus.

^ SIMON ZEALOTES
Christ, what more do you need to convince you
That you've made it, and you're easily as strong
As the filth from Rome who rape our country,
And who've terrorized our people for so long.

CROWD
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.

^ SIMON ZEALOTES
There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and more for you.
Everyone of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you asked them to.
Keep them yelling their devotion,
But add a touch of hate at Rome.
You will rise to a greater power.
We will win ourselves a home.
You will get the power and the glory.
Forever and and ever and ever.
Amen! Amen!
^

Poor Jerusalem



JESUS

Neither you, Simon, nor the fifty thousand,
Nor the Romans, nor the Jews,
Nor Judas, nor the twelve,
Nor the priests, nor the scribes,
Nor doomed Jerusalem itself,
Understand what power is,
Understand what glory is,
Understand at all.....
Understand at all.

If you knew all that I knew, my poor Jerusalem,
You'd see the truth, but you close your eyes...
But you close your eyes.
While you live your troubles are many, poor Jerusalem.
To conquer death, you only have to die....
You only have to die.
^

Pilate's Dream



PILATE

I dreamed I met a Galilean,
A most amazing man.
He had that look you rarely find,
The haunted, hunted kind.

I asked him to say what had happened,
How it all began
I asked again - he never said a word.
As if he hadn't heard.

And next, the room was full of wild and angry men.
They seemed to hate this man.
They fell on him him, and then,
They disappeared again.

Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard then mentioning my name,
And leaving me the blame.
^

The Temple



MONEYCHANGERS and MERCHANTS

Roll on up, for my price is down.
Come on in for the best in town.
Take your pick on the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine.

Roll on up, for my price is down.
Come on in for the best in town.
Take your pick on the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine.

Name your price. I got everything.
Come and buy. It's all going fast.
Borrow cash on the finest terms.
Hurry now while stocks last.

JESUS
My temple should be a house of prayer,
But you have made it a den of thieves.
Get out! Get out!


My time is almost through.
Little left to do.
After all, I've tried for three years
Seems like thirty...Seems like thirty.

CROWD
See my eyes, I can hardly see.
See me stand I can hardly walk.
I believe you can make me whole
See my tongue, I can hardly talk.

See my skin, I'm a mass of blood.
See my legs, I can hardly stand.
I believe you can make me well.
See my purse, I'm a poor, poor man.

Will you touch, will you mend me Christ?
Won't you touch, will you heal me Christ?
Will you kiss, you can cure me Christ!
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me Christ?

JESUS
There's too many of you...Don't push me.
There's too little of me...Don't crowd me.
Heal yourselves!
^

Everything's Alright



MARY MAGDALENE

Try not to get worried. Try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.

JESUS
And I think I shall sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without me tonight.

MARY MAGDALENE
Close your eyes. Close your eyes,
And forget all about us tonight.

I Don't Know How To Love Him



MARY MAGDALENE

I don't know how to love him.
What to do, how to move him.
I've been changed, yes, really changed.
In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
I seem like someone else.

I don't know how to take this.
I don't see why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
And I've had so many many men before,
In very many ways.
He's just one more.

Should I bring him down?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love,
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?

Don't you think it's rather funny,
I should be in this position.
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool.
Running every show.
He scares me so.

I never thought I'd come to this.
What's this all about?

Yet, if he said he loved me,
I'd be lost. I'd be frightened.
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope.
I'd turn my head. I'd back away.
I wouldn't want to know.
He scares me so.
I want him so.
I love him so.
^

Damned for All Time



JUDAS

Now if I help you, it matters that you see
These sordid kinda things are coming hard to me.
It's taken me some time to work out what to do.
I weighed the whole thing out before I came to you.
I had no thought of my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

I came because I had to; I'm the one who saw.
Jesus can't control me like he did before.
And furthermore I know that Jesus thinks so too.
Jesus wouldn't mind that I was here with you.
I had no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

Annas, you're a friend, a worldly man and wise.
Caiaphas, my friend, I know you sympathize.
Why are we the prophets? Why are we the ones
Who see the sad solution - know what must be done?
I had no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

^ ANNAS
Cut the protesting, forget the excuses.
We want information. Get up off the floor.

CAIAPHAS
We have the papers we need to arrest him.
You know his movements. We know the law.

ANNAS
Your help in the matter won't go unrewarded.

CAIAPHAS
We'll pay you in silver, cash on the nail.
We just need to know where the soldiers can find him...

ANNAS
With no crowd around him....

CAIAPHAS
Then we can't fail.
^

Blood Money


JUDAS

I don't need your blood money!

CAIAPHAS
Oh, that doesn't matter, our expenses are good.

JUDAS
I don't want your blood money!

ANNAS
But you might as well take it. We think that you should.

CAIAPHAS
Think of the things you could do with that money,
Choose any charity - give to the poor.
We've noted your motives. We've noted your feelings.
This isn't blood money - it's a ...

ANNAS
a fee......

CAIAPHAS
A fee nothing more.

JUDAS
On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him:
Far from the crowd, in the Garden of Gethsemane.

TEMPTRESSES
Well done Judas.
Good old Judas.

END OF ACT 1

Jesus Christ Superstar
Libretto - Act 2




^ THE LAST SUPPER

Thursday night, The Last Supper

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll talk about us when we've died

JESUS
The end
Is just a little harder when brought about by friends
For all you care this wine could be my blood
For all you care this bread could be my body
The end!
This is my blood you drink
This is my body you eat
If you remember me when you eat and drink.
I must be mad thinking I'll be remembered - yes
I must be out of my head!
Look at your blank faces! My name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead!
One of you denies me
One of you betrays me-

APOSTLES
Not I! Who would? Impossible!

JESUS
Peter will deny me in just a few hours
Three times will deny me-and that's not all I see
One of you here dining, one of my twelve chosen
Will leave to betray me

^ JUDAS
Cut out the dramatics! You know very well who

JESUS
Why don't you go do it?

JUDAS
You want me to do it!

JESUS
Hurry they are waiting

JUDAS
If you knew why I do it

JESUS
I don't care why you do it!

JUDAS
To think I admired you For now I despise you

JESUS
You liar - you Judas

JUDAS
You want me to do it!
What if I just stayed here
And ruined your ambition?
Christ you deserve it!

^ JESUS
Hurry you fool, hurry and go,
Save me your speeches, I don't want to know - Go!

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
What's that in the bread it's gone to my head
Till this morning is this evening life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll all talk about us when we've died

JUDAS
You sad pathetic man - see where you've brought us to
Our ideals die around us all because of you
And now the saddest cut of all -Someone has to turn you in
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal
A jaded mandarin
A jaded mandarin
A jaded faded mandarin

^ JESUS
Get out! They're waiting! They're waiting for you!

JUDAS
Everytime I look at you I don't understand,
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died

JESUS
Will no-one stay awake with me?
Peter? John? James?
Will none of you wait with me?
Peter? John? James?



GETHSEMANE (I only want to say)

In the Garden of Gethsemane

JESUS
I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me for I don't want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me, I have changed I'm not as sure
As when we started
Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
Listen surely I've exceeded expectations
Tried for three years seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me hit me hurt me nail me to their tree
I'd wanna know I'd wanna know my God
I'd wanna see I'd wanna see my God
Why I should die

Would I be more noticed than I was ever before?
Would the things I've said and done matter any more?
I'd have to know I'd have to know my Lord
I'd have to see I'd have to see my Lord
If I die what will be my reward?
I'd have to know I'd have to know my Lord
Why should I die?

Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die
You're far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why
Alright I'll die!
Just watch me die!
See how I die!

Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all I've tried for three years seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started
What you started - I didn't start it
God thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison, nail me to the cross and break me
Bleed me beat me kill me take me now - before I change my mind



^ THE ARREST

JUDAS
There he is! They're all asleep - the fools!

JESUS
Judas - must you betray me with a kiss?

PETER
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

PETER AND APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening
Hang on Lord we're gonna fight for you

JESUS
Put away your sword
Don't you know that it's all over?
It was nice but now it's gone
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on

CROWD
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Do you think that you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men proved at all worthwhile?

Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the High Priest's house
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the High Priest's house
Come on God this is not like you
Let us know what you're gonna do
You know what your supporters feel
You'll escape in the final reel

Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?

Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the High Priests' house
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the High Priest's house

Now we have him ! Now we have got him!

CAIAPHAS
Jesus you must realise the serious charges facing you
You say you're the Son of God in all your handouts - well is it true

^ JESUS
That's what you say - you say that I am

ANNAS
There you have it gentlemen - what more evidence do we need?
Judas thank you for the victim - stay a while and you'll see it bleed!

CROWD
Now we have him I Now we have got him Take him to Pilate



^ PETER'S DENIAL

MAID BY THE FIRE
I think I've seen you somewhere - I remember
You were with that man they took away I recognise your face

PETER
You've got the wrong man lady I don't know him
And I wasn't where he was tonight - never near the place

SOLDIER
That's strange for I am sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side and yet you denied

^ PETER
I tell you I was never ever with him

OLD MAN
But I saw you too - it looked just like you

PETER
I don't know him

MARY MAGDALENE
Peter - don't you know what you have said
You've gone and cut him dead

^ PETER
I had to do it don't you see?
Or else they'd go for me

MARY MAGDALENE
It's what he told us you would do - I wonder how he knew….



Friday

PILATE AND CHRIST

PILATE
Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway? Who is this unfortunate?

SOLDIER
Someone Christ - King of the Jews

PILATE
Oh so this is Jesus Christ, I am really quite surprised
You look so small - not a king at all
We all know that you are news-but are you king? King of the Jews?

^ JESUS
That's what you say

PILATE
What do you mean by that?
That is not an answer
You're deep in trouble friend - Someone Christ - King of the Jews
How can someone in your state be so cool about your fate?
An amazing thing - this silent king
Since you come from Galilee then you need not come to me
You're Herod's race! You're Herod's case!

MOB
Ho-ho Sanna Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho and how
Hey JC, JC please explain to me
You had everything where is it now?



^ KING HEROD'S SONG

HEROD
Jesus I am overjoyed to meet you face to face
You've been getting quite a name all around the place
Healing cripples raising from the dead
And now I understand you're God at least that's what you've said

So you are the Christ you're the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're divine - change my water into wine
That's all you need do and I'll know it's all true
C'mon King of the Jews

Jesus you just won't believe the hit you've made round here
You are all we talk about the wonder of the year
Oh what a pity if it's all a lie
Still I'm sure that you can rock the cynics if you try
So you are the Christ you're the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're no fool walk across my swimming pool
If you do that for me then I'll let you go free
C'mon King of the Jews

I only ask things I'd ask any superstar
What is it that you have got that puts you where you are?
I am waiting yes I'm a captive fan
I am dying to be shown that you are not just any man

So if you are the Christ yes the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread - you can do it on your head
Or has something gone wrong? Why do you take so long?
C'mon King of the Jews

Hey! Aren't you scared of me Christ? Mr, Wonderful Christ!
You're a joke you're not the Lord - you are nothing but a fraud
Take him away - he's got nothing to say!
Get out you King of the Jews! Get out of my life



^ COULD WE START AGAIN PLEASE

MARY
I've been living to see you
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this
This was unexpected
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?

I'd been very hopeful so far
Now for the first time I think we're going wrong
Hurry up and tell me
This is just a dream or
Could we start again please?

PETER
I think you've made your point now
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home
Before it gets too frightening
We ought to call a halt so
Could we start again please?

ALL
I've been living to see you
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this
This was unexpected
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?

I think you've made your point now
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home
Before it gets too frightening
We ought to call a halt so
Could we start again please?
Could we start again please?
Could we start again please?
Could we start again please?
Could we start again?



^ JUDAS' DEATH

JUDAS
My God! I saw him - he looked three-quarters dead!
And he was so bad I had to turn my head
You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame
And I know who everybody's gonna blame
I don't believe he knows I acted for our good
I'd save him all this suffering if I could
Don't believe.. . our good . . save him ... if I could

PRIEST 3
Cut the confessions forget the excuses
I don't understand why you're filled with remorse
All that you've said has come true with a vengeance
The mob turned against him - you backed the right horse

CAIAPHAS
What you have done will be the saving of Israel
You'll be remembered forever for this
And not only that you've been paid for your efforts
Pretty good wages for one little kiss

JUDAS
Christ! I know you can't hear me
But I only did what you wanted me to
Christ! I'd sell out the nation
For I have been saddled with the murder of you
I have been spattered with innocent blood
I shall be dragged through the slime and the mud
I have been spattered with innocent blood
I shall be dragged through the slime and the mud!
I don't know how to love him
I don't know why he moves me
He's a man - he's just a man
He's not a king - he's just the same
As anyone I know
He scares me so
When he's cold and dead will he let me be?
Does he love me too? Does he care for me?
My mind is darkness now
My God I am sick I've been used
And you knew all the time
God! I'll never ever know why you chose me for your crime
For your foul bloody crime
You have murdered me! You have murdered me!

CHOIR
Poor old Judas
So long Judas



^ TRIAL BEFORE PILATE

(including 39 lashes)

PILATE
And so the King is once again my guest
And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?

CAIAPHAS
We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth
We have no law to put a man to death
We need him crucified - it's all you have to do
We need him crucified - it's all you have to do

PILATE
Talk to me Jesus Christ
You have been brought here - manacled, beaten
By your own people - do you have the first idea why you deserve it?

Listen, King of the Jews
Where is your Kingdom?
Look at me - am I a Jew?

^ JESUS
I have got no Kingdom in this world - I'm through, through, through

MOB
Talk to me Jesus Christ

JESUS
There may be a Kingdom for me somewhere - if I only knew

PILATE
Then you're a king?

JESUS
It's you that say I am
I look for truth and find that I get damned

^ PILATE
But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths-are mine the same as yours?

MOB
Crucify him! Crucify him!

PILATE
What do you mean? You'd crucify your King?

MOB
We have no King but Caesar!

PILATE
He's done no wrong - no not the slightest thing

^ MOB
We have no King but Caesar! Crucify him!

PILATE
Well this is new - respect for Caesar -Till now this has been noticeably lacking
Who is this Jesus? Why is he different?
You Jews produce Messiahs by the sackful

MOB
We need him crucified - it's all you have to do
We need him crucified-it's all you have to do

PILATE
Talk to me Jesus Christ
Look at your Jesus Christ
I'll agree he's mad - ought to be locked up
But that is not a reason to destroy him
He's a sad little man
Not a King or God
Not a thief - I need a crime

^ MOB
Kill him he says he's God - a blasphemer
He'll conquer you and us and even Caesar
Crucify him!
Crucify him!

PILATE
Behold the man
Behold your shattered King

MOB
We have no King but Caesar

PILATE
You hypocrites
You hate us more than him

^ MOB
We have no King but Caesar Crucify him!

PILATE
I see no reason - I find no evil
This man is harmless, so why does he upset you?
He's just misguided - thinks he's important
But to keep you vultures happy, I shall flog him

MOB
Crucify him! Crucify him!
Crucify! Crucify! Crucify! Crucify!
Crucify him! Crucify him!
Crucify! Crucify! Crucify! Crucify!
Crucify him! Crucify him!
Crucify! Crucify! Crucify! Crucify!

(Thirty nine lashes)

PILATE
Where are you from Jesus? What do you want Jesus? Tell me
You've got to be careful - you could be dead soon - could well be
Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands?
How can you stay quiet? I don't believe you understand

JESUS
You have nothing in your hands
Any power you have comes to you from far beyond
Everything is fixed and you can't change it

^ PILATE
You're a fool Jesus Christ - how can I help you?

MOB
Pilate! Crucify him! Crucify!
Remember Caesar - you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him!
Remember Caesar - you'll be demoted
You'll be deported Crucify him!
Remember Caesar - you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him!
Remember Caesar - you'll be demoted
You'll be deported Crucify him!
Remember Caesar - you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him!
Remember Caesar - you'll be demoted
You'll be deported Crucify him!

PILATE
Don't let me stop your great self-destruction
Die if you want to you misguided martyr
I wash my hands of your demolition
Die if you want to you innocent puppet!



SUPERSTAR

VOICE OF JUDAS
Everytime I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned
Why'd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
If you'd come today you would have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication
Don't you get me wrong - I only want to know

CHOIR
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

^ VOICE OF JUDAS
Tell me what you think of your friends at the top
Who d'you think besides yourself's the pick of the crop?
Buddah was he where it's at? Is he where you are?
Could Mahomet move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that? Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record-breaker?
Don't you get me wrong - I only want to know

CHOIR
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?



THE CRUCIFIXION

JESUS
God forgive them - they don't know what they're doing
Who is my mother? Where is my mother?
My God My God why have you forgotten me?
I am thirsty
It is finished
Father into your hands I commend my spirit



JOHN NINETEEN FORTY-ONE
