Everything's Alright - Jesus Christ Superstar/Soundtrack Version

Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to problems that upset you
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
(Everything's all right, yes

Everything's all right, yes)
Sleep and I shall soothe you

Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
Then you'll feel everything's all right, 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
(Everything's all right, yes

Everything's all right, yes)
Hey hey woman, your fine ointment, brand new and expensive

Should 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
Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to problems that upset you

Don't you know everything's alright?
Yes, everything's alright yes.
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, and you'll be sorry
When I'm gone

Sleep and I shall soothe you
Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
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
(Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax)
(Everything's all right, yes)
