Good Caiaphas the council waits for you
The Pharisees and Priests are here for you
Ah gentlemen, you know why we are here
We've not much time and quite a problem here
(Outside)

Hosanna, Superstar
Listen to that howling mob of blockheads in the street
A trick or two with lepers and the whole town's on its feet
He is dangerous
(Outside)

Jesus Christ Superstar, tell us that you're who they say you are
He is dangerous, that man is in town right now
To whip up some support, a rabble rousing mission
That I think we must abort, he is dangerous
(Outside)

Jesus Christ Superstar
He is dangerous
Look Caiaphas, they 're right outside our yard
Quick Caiaphas, go call the Roman guard

No wait, we need a more permanent solution to our problem
What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth
Miracle wonder man, hero of fools?
No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans

One thing I'll say for Him, Jesus is cool
We dare not leave Him to His own devices
His half-witted fans will get out of control
How can we stop Him?

His glamor increases by leaps every minute
He's top of the poll, 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
Because, because, because of one man
Our elimination because of one man
Because, because, because of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of one man

What then to do about this Jesus mania?
How do we deal with the carpenter king?
Where do we start with a man who is bigger
Than John was when John did his Baptism thing?

Fools, you have no perception
The stakes 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
Must die, must die, this Jesus must die
So like John before Him, this Jesus must die
Must die, must die, this Jesus must
Jesus must, Jesus must die
