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

Hosanna, Superstar
Hosanna, Superstar
Hosanna, Superstar
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
Jesus Christ Superstar
He is dangerous
Tell us that you're who they say you are

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
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
But 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 to we deal with a Carpenter King?
Where do we start with the man who is bigger
Than John was when John did His baptism thing?

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
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
