"Everything's Alright" as written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice....
Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you
(oh) Don't you know

Everything's alright
Yes everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight

If we try
We'll get by
So forget all about us tonight
(Apostles' Women)

Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes
(Mary Magdalene)
Sleep and I shall soothe you

Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
(oh) Then you'll feel
Everything's all right

Yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes

Close your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing tonight
(Apostles' Women)

Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes
(Judas)
Woman your fine ointment

Brand new and expensive
Should have been saved for the poor
Why has it been wasted?
We could have raised maybe

Three hundred silver pieces or more
People who are hungry
People who are starving
Matter more

Than your feet and hair
(Mary Magdalene)
Try not to get worried
Try not to turn on to

Problems that upset you
(oh) Don't you know
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight

If we try
We'll get by
So forget all about us tonight
(women)

Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes
(Jesus)
Surely you're not saying

We have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always
Pathetically struggling

Look at the good things you've got!
Think while you still have me
Move while you still see me
You'll be lost

You'll be so sorry
When I'm gone
(Mary Magdalene)
Sleep and I shall soothe you

Calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
(oh) then you'll feel
Everything's alright

Yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes

Close your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing tonight
(Apostles' Women)

Close your eyes
Alose your eyes
And relax
Think of nothing

Everything's all right
Yes everything's all right yes

    General CommentHer voice is so beautiful in this song and the lyrics make me cry - almost.

    It's an interesting contrast to think about in Jesus' life. Trying to relax yet at the same time (as Judas points out) having a need to help out the needy as much as possible.
