"Everything's Alright [From Jesus Christ Superstar]" 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

Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes

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

Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes

Woman, your fine ointment, brand new and expensive
Could 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
They matter more than your feet and hair!

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

Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes

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, so sorry when I'm gone

Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead
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 (Close your eyes, close your eyes, and relax)
(Think of nothing tonight)
Close your eyes, close your eyes, and relax (Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes)
Think of nothing tonight (Close your eyes, close your eyes, and relax)
(Think of nothing tonight)
