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

Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?

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
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
(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

Note

 

Il celebre brano è uno dei momenti topici del famoso musical anni '70 sulla vita di Cristo "Jesus Christ Superstar". La voce introduttiva del brano, che poi diventa corale, è quella di Giuda Iscariota, interpretato nel musical da Murray Head. Scritta dai due autori del musical Tim Rice (testo) e Andrew Lloyd-Webber (musica), venne pubblicata come singolo nel novembre del 1969, prima che venisse completato e commercializzato l'album con la colonna sonora del musical (ancora solo teatrale). La prima versione era interpretata dallo stesso protagonista del musical assieme ai Trinidad Singer, entrata in classifica USA già nel 1970, ha raggiunto come massima posizione il n.14 a giugno del 1961.
Nel 1973 dal musical fu tratto un film di buon successo, diretto dal regista canadese Norman Jewison; nella versione cinematografica il ruolo di Giuda era interpretato da Carl Anderson.
Del brano venne proposta una versione italiana dal gruppo Flora, Fauna e Cemento con testo totalmente stravolto.
