Jesus Christ Superstar – Peter's Denial lyrics

MAID:
I think I've seen you somewhere
I remember,
You were with that man
They took away
I recognize your face

PETER:
You've got the wrong man lady
I don't know him
And I wasn't where he was tonight
Never near the place

SOLDIER:
That's strange
For I am sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side
And yet you deny

PETER:
I tell you I was never ever with him

OLD MAN:
But I saw you too
He looked just like you

PETER:
I don't know him

MARY:
Peter, don't you know
What you have said
You've gone and cut him dead

PETER:
I had to do it don't you see
Or else they'd go for me

MARY:
It's what he told us you would do
I wonder how he knew

    Just as Jesus said earlier at the last supper peter has denied that he knew Jesus 3 times and now they are left in wonderment of how he knew what peter would do and them starting to realise that Jesus is going to die and them starting to worry how other will react when they find out they were with Jesus.
