This Jesus Must Die - Jesus Christ Superstar/Soundtrack Version

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 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
