"The Temple" as written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and Alicia Serrat....
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!

    General CommentIn some versions, this song starts with these verses:

    Roll on up Jerusalem
    Come on in Jerusalem
    Sunday here we go again
    Live in me Jerusalem
    Here you live Jerusalem
    Here you breath Jerusalem
    While your temple still survives
    You at least are still alive

    I've got things you won't believe
    Name your pleasure - I will sell
    I can fix your wildest needs
    I've got heaven - I've got hell

    What you see is what you get
    No-one's been disappointed yet
    Don't be scared give me a try
    There is nothing you can't buy
