    "This Jesus Must Die" Lyrics

    Original Broadway Cast

    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, 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

    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
