Jesus Christ Superstar lyrics

Facebook "Jesus Christ, Superstar" is a rock opera with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The musical started as a rock opera record, but quickly grew into a Broadway play in 1971. The musical is based on the Gospel accounts of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with preparations for his arrival in Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) and ending with his crucifixion. It also draws heavily on Bishop Fulton J. Sheen's book, 'Life of Christ'. The resurrection is not included in the opera, so essentially it's a traditional passion play.

The opera focuses on the relationships between Judas Iscariot and Jesus and between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. These relationships and their motivations are not discussed in the Gospels and resulted in a lot of protest from conservative Christians.

Every time I look at you 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

Why'd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
If you'd come today you could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication

Don't you get me wrong, I only want to know

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?

Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Who'd you think besides yourself's the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it's at? Is he where you are?

Could Mahomet move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that? Was that a mistake or
Did you know you messy death would be a record breaker?

Don't you get me wrong, I only want to know

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?
