(Crowd)
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C won't you smile at me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

(Caiaphas)

Tell the rabble to be quiet
We anticipate a riot
This common crowd
Is much too loud
Tell the mob who sing your song
That they are fools and they are wrong
They are a curse
They should disperse

(Crowd)

Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C you're alright by me
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

(Jesus)

Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting
If ev'ry tongue was still the noise would still continue
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing:

(Crowd, with Jesus)

Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J C, J C won't you fight for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

    General CommentThe film and various stage versions I've seen have an extra verse:

    Sing me your songs
    But not for me alone
    Sing out for yourselves
    For you are blessed
    There is not one of you
    Who can not win the kingdom
    The slow, the suffering
    The quick, the dead

    General Comment^^^ Yes, in the film version definitely, and the crowd goes on to sing:

    Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
    Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
    Hey JC, JC, won't you die for me?
    Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar
