The Temple Lyrics

Artist: Jesus Christ Superstar
Album: Jesus Christ Superstar Soundtrack

Moneylenders and Merchants
Roll on up -- for my price is down
Come on in -- for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine

Name your price I got everything
Come and buy it's all going fast
Borrow cash on the finest terms
Hurry now while stocks still last

My temple should be a house of prayer
But you have made it a den of thieves
Get up, get out

My time
Is almost through
Little left to do
After all
I've tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Seems like thirty

See my eyes I can hardly see
See me stand I can hardly walk
I believe you can make me whole
See my tongue I can hardly talk

See my skin I'm a mass of blood
See my legs I can hardly stand
I believe you can make me well
See my purse I'm a poor, poor man

Will you touch, will you mend me Christ?
Won't you touch, will you heal me Christ?
Will you kiss, you can heal me Christ
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me Christ?

Oh, there's too many of you, don't push me
Oh, there's too little of me, don't crowd me
Heal yourselves!

I absolutely love the movie, but I remember purchasing a brown album (so many moons ago) with two angels on the cover facing each other that was called Jesus Christ Superstar. Some songs are different, not many though. I think the music and the singing was much better than the movie.

Gail I think what you got was the 1970 ('73?) musical release. It is different because if I remember correctly two or three songs were added to the movie.

My dad has the soundtrack for the movie and original... both on vinyl!
Unfortunately, I don't have a turntable, but we have the album on disk.
