I Don’t Know How To Love Him

Mary Magdalene
I don’t know how to love him
What to do, how to move him
I’ve been changed, yes really changed
In these past few days
When I’ve seen myself
I seem like someone else

I don’t know how to take this
I don’t see why he moves me
He’s a man
He’s just a man
And I’ve had so many
Men before
In very many ways
He’s just one more

Should I bring him down
Should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I’d come to this
What’s it all about?

Don’t you think it’s rather funny
I should be in this position?
I’m the one
Who’s always been
So calm so cool
No lover’s fool
Running every show
He scares me so

I never thought I’d come to this
What’s it all about?

Yet
If he said he loved me
I’d be lost
I’d be frightened
I couldn’t cope
Just couldn’t cope
I’d turn my head
I’d back away
I wouldn’t want to know
He scares me so
I want him so
I love him so

What’s The Buzz/Strange Things Mystifying

Apostles
What’s the buzz
Tell me what’s a-happening

Jesus
Why should you want to know?
Don’t you mind about the future
Don’t you try to think ahead
Save tomorrow for tomorrow
Think about today instead
I could give you facts and figures
I could give you plans and forecasts
Even tell you where I’m going

Apostles
When do we
Ride to Jerusalem?

Jesus
Why should you want to know
Why are you obsessed with fighting
Times and fates you can’t defy?
If you knew the path we’re riding
You’d understand it less than I

Apostles
What’s the buzz
Tell me what’s happening

Mary Magdalene
Let me try
To cool down your face a bit

Jesus
That feels nice, so nice
Mary, oooh, that is good

While you prattle through your supper
Where and when and who and how
She alone has tried to give me
What I need right here and now

Apostles
What’s the buzz
Tell me what’s happening

Judas
It’s a strange thing
Mystifying
That a man like you
Can waste his time
With women of her kind
I can understand that she amuses you
But to let her stroke you
Kiss your hair
Is hardly in your line
It’s not that I object
To her profession
But it doesn’t seem to square
With what you do or say
It doesn’t help
If you’re inconsistant
They only need a small excuse
To put us all away

Jesus
Who are you
To criticize her?
Who are you
To despise her?
Leave her, leave her
Let her be now
Leave her, leave her
She’s with me now
If your slate is clean
Then you can throw stones
If your slate is not
Then leave her alone!

I’m amazed that men like you
Can be so shallow, thick, and slow
There is not a man among you
Who knows or cares if I come or go

Apostles, except Judas
No you are wrong
You’re very wrong
How can you say that!
How can you say that!

Jesus
Not one, not one of you!

Hosanna

Crowd
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C won’t you smile at me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

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

Crowd
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C you’re alright by me
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

Jesus
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting
If ev’ry tongue was still the noise would still continue
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing:

Crowd, with Jesus
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C won’t you fight for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

Who are you? What have you sacrificed?

Voice of Judas
Every time 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 backward time
And such a strange land?

If you’d come today
You could have reached the whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication
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, now

Only want to know, now

Do you think you’re what they say you are?

Tell me what you think
About your friends at the top
Now who d’you think besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddah was he where it’s at?
Is he where you are?
Could Muhammmed 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?

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

I Only Want To Say (Gethsemane)

Jesus
I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don’t want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me,
I have changed I’m not as sure
As when we started
Then I was inspired
Now I’m sad and tired
Listen surely I’ve exceeded
Expectations
Tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Could you ask as much
From any other man?

But if I die
See the saga through
And do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me
Nail me to their tree
I’d want to know
I’d want to know my God
I’d want to know
I’d want to know my God
I’d want to see
I’d want to see my God
I’d want to see
I’d want to see my God
Why I should die
Would I be more noticed
Than I ever was before?
Would the things I’ve said and done
Matter any more?
I’d have to know
I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to know
I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to see
I’d have to see my Lord
I’d have to see
I’d have to see my Lord

If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
I’d have to know
I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to know
I’d have to know my Lord

Why, why should I die?
Oh, why should I die?
Can you show me now
That I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little
Of your omnipresent brain
Show me there’s a reason
For your wanting me to die
You’re far too keen on where and how
But not so hot on why
Alright I’ll die!
Just watch me die!
See how, see how I die!
Oh, just watch me die!

Then I was inspired
Now I’m sad and tired
After all I’ve tried for three years
Seems like ninety
Why then am I scared
To finish what I started
What you started
I didn’t start it
God thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison
Nail me to your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me
Kill me, take me now
Before I change my mind

Pilate And Christ

Pilate
Who is this broken man?
Cluttering up my hallway?
Who is this un-for-tu-nate?

Soldier
Someone Christ, King of the Jews

Pilate
Oh so this is Jesus Christ
I am really quite surprised
You look so small
Not a king at all
We all know that you are news
But are you king?
King of the Jews?

Jesus
That’s what you say

Pilate
What do you mean by that?
That is not an answer
You’re deep in trouble friend
Someone Christ, King of the Jews
How can someone in your state
Be so cool about your fate?
An amazing thing
This silent king
Since you come from Galilee
So you need not come to me
You’re Herod’s race
You’re Herod’s case

Chorus
Hosanna, hey sanna, sanna sanna ho
Sanna hey, sanna ho, sanna
Hey JC, JC, please explain to me
You had everything, where is it now?

Get out of here, you! Get out of my Life!

King Herod’s Song (Try It And See)

Herod
Jesus, I am overjoyed
To meet you face to face
You’ve been getting quite a name
All around the place
Healing cripples
Raising from the dead
Now I understand you’re God
At least that’s what you’ve said

So you are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you’re divine
Change my water into wine
That’s all you need do
Then I’ll know it’s all true
C’mon King of the Jews

Jesus you just won’t believe
The hit you’ve made around here
You are all we talk about
You’re the wonder of the year
Oh what a pity
If it’s all a lie
Still I’m sure
That you can rock the cynics if you try

So if you are the Christ
Yes the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you’re no fool
Walk across my swimming pool
If you do that for me
Then I’ll let you go free
C’mon King of the Jews

I only ask what I’d ask any superstar
What is it that you have got
That puts you where you are? Oh, ho ho
I am waiting
Yes I’m a captive fan
I’m dying to be shown
That you are not just any man

So if you are the Christ
Yes the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread
You can do it on your head
Or has something gone wrong?
Jesus, why do you take so long?
Aw, c’mon King of the Jews

Hey! Aren’t you scared of me Christ?
Mr. Wonderful Christ!
You’re a joke, you’re not the Lord
You are nothing but a fraud
Take him away
He’s got nothing to say!
Get out you King of the
Get out you King of the,
Get out you King of the Jews!
Get out of here, you, you!
Get out of here, you!
Get out of my Life!
