Jesus Christ Superstar – Hosanna lyrics

[Chorus]
CROWD:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna
Hey JC, JC won't you smile at me?
Sanna Hosanna
Hey Superstar

[Verse 1]
CAIAPHAS:
Tell the rabble to be quiet, we anticipate a riot.
This common crowd, is much too loud.
Tell the mob who sing your song that they are fools and they are wrong.
They are a curse. They should disperse.

[Chorus]
CROWD:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna
Hey JC, JC you're alright by me
Sanna Hosanna
Hey Superstar

[Verse 2]
JESUS:
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting.
If every tongue were stilled
The noise would still continue.
The rocks and stone themselves would start to sing:

[Chorus]
CROWD AND JESUS:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna

CROWD (alone):
Hey JC, JC won't you fight for me?
Sanna Hosanna Hey Superstar

[Verse 3]
JESUS:
Sing me your songs,
But not for me alone.
Sing out for yourselves,
For you are bless-ed.
There is not one of you
Who can not win the kingdom.
The slow, the suffering,
The quick, the dead.

[Chorus]
CROWD and JESUS:
Hosanna
Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Hosanna
Hey Sanna Hosanna

[Outro]
CROWD (alone):
Hey JC, JC won't you die for me?
Sanna Hosanna Hey Superstar

    This song is sung as Jesus arrive in town and is his supporter and ordinary people welcoming him to the town whilst being looked down upon by CAIAPHAS who tries to get Jesus to disperse the crowd that has gathered to see him to which Jesus says nothing can be done to make the crowd go away and even if it was quite the rocks and stones would break said quite.
