Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Superstar lyrics

[Verse 1]
Judas:
Mm, everytime I look at you
I don't understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
You'd have managed better
If you'd had it planned
Now why'd you choose such a backwards time
And such and strange land

[Verse 2]
If you'd come today
You could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC
Had no mass communication

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don't you get me wrong) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong, now) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong, now) Don't you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

[Chorus]
Choir:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

[Verse 3]
Judas:
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Now who'd you think, besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it's at?
Is he where you are?
Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don't you get me wrong) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong, now) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong) Don't you get me wrong
(Don't you get me wrong, now) Don't you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

[Chorus]
Choir:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
