Jesus Christ Superstar – Blood Money lyrics

ANNAS:
Cut the protesting, forget the excuses.
We want information. Get up of the floor.

CAIAPHAS:
We have the papers we need to arrest him.
You know his movements. We know the law.

ANNAS:
Your help in this matter won't go unrewarded.

CAIAPHAS:
We'll pay you in silver, cash on the nail.
We just need to know where the soldiers can find him.

ANNAS:
With no crowd around him.

CAIAPHAS:
Then we can't fail.

JUDAS:
I don't want your blood money!

CAIAPHAS:
Oh, that doesn't matter, our expenses are good.

JUDAS:
I don't need your blood money!

ANNAS:
But you might as well take it. We think that you should.

CAIAPHAS:
Think of the things you could do with that money,
Choose any charity - give to the poor.
We've noted your motives.
We've noted your feelings.
This isn't blood money - it's a ...

ANNAS:
A fee.

CAIAPHAS:
A fee nothing more.

JUDAS:
On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him.
Far from the crowds, in the Garden of Gethsemane.

CHOIR:
Well done Judas. Good old Judas.

    This song is Judas making the deal with CAIAPHAS and Annas where by he gives them Jesus' location where he will be far from a lot of people and in return they would give him money. thought out this song Judas keeps refusing the money calling blood money hence the name of this song. in the end he is persuaded to reveal when they call the money a fee that could be spent on a charity or given to the poor.
