Simon Zealotes/Poor Jerusalem

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice and appears on the musical soundtrack Jesus Christ Superstar (1970).

(Crowd)
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved
I believe in you and God
So tell me that i'm saved
Repeat

Jesus I am with you
Touch me, Touch me Jesus!
Jesus I am on your side
Kiss me, Kiss me Jesus!

(Simon)
Christ what more do you need to convince you?
That you've made it, and you're easily as strong
As the filth from Rome who rape our country
And who've terrorized our people for so long

(Crowd)
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved
repeat

Jesus i am with you
Touch me, touch me Jesus!
Jesus i am on your side
Kiss me, kiss me Jesus!

(Simon)
There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and all for you.
And everyone of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you ask him to.
Keep them yelling their devotion,
But add a touch of hate at Rome!
And you will rise to a greater power!
We will win ourselves our home!
And you'll get the power and the glory!
For ever and ever and ever!
And you'll get the power and the glory!
For ever and ever and ever!
You'll get the power and the glory! (For ever Amen!)
For ever and ever and ever! (For ever Amen!)
You'll get the power and the glory! (For ever Amen!)
For ever and ever and ever! (For ever Amen!)
Repeat last 2 lines x3

(Jesus)
Neither you Simon, nor the fifty thousand
Nor the Romans, nor the Jews
Nor Judas, nor the twelve
Nor the priests, nor the scribes
Nor doomed Jerusalem itself
Understand what power is
Understand what glory is
Understand at all
Understand at all

If you knew, all that i knew
My poor Jerusalem
You'd see the truth, but you'd live a lie
But you'd live a lie
While you live
Your troubles are many
Poor Jerusalem
To conquer death
You only have to die
You only have to die
