King Herod's Song

(Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber)

Jesus, I am overjoyed to meet you face to face
You've been getting quite a name all around the place
Healing cripples, cute trick, raising from the dead, oh...
And now I understand you're God, well, 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 and I'll know it's all true
C'mon King of the Jews

Jesus you just won't believe the hit you've made 'round here
You're are all we talk about, 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 you're are the Christ you're 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

Hit it boys...

I only ask the things I'd ask of any superstar
What is it that you have got that puts you where you are
Oh 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're the Christ, yes the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread, you could do it on your head
Or has something gone wrong? Why do you take so long
C'mon you 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 outta here
You're gonna have to do better than that, boy
