damned for all time / blood money lyrics – andré george previn

(tuesday)

carl:
now if i help you, it matters that you see
these sordid kinds of things are coming hard to me
it’s taken me some time to work out what to do
i weighed the whole thing out before i came to you
i have no thought at all about my own reward
i really didn’t come here of my own accord

just don’t say i’m
d-mned for all time

i came because i had to i’m the one who saw
jesus can’t control it like he did before
and further more i know that jesus thinks so too
jesus wouldn’t mind that i was here with you
i have no thought at all about my own reward
i really didn’t come here of my own accord

just don’t say i’m
d-mned for all time

annas, you’re a friend – a worldly man and wise
caiaphas, my friend, i know you symphathise
but why are we the prophets? why are we the ones?
we see the sad solution – know what must be done
i have no thought at all about my own reward
i really didn’t come here of my own accord
just don’t say i’m
d-mned
for all time

[blood money]

kurt:
cut the protesting forget the excuses
we want information; get up off the floor

bob:
we have the papers we need to arrest him
you know his movements, we know the law

kurt:
your help in this matter won’t go unrewarded

bob:
we’ll pay you in silver – cash on the nail
we just need to know where the soldiers can find him

kurt:
with no crowd ’round him

bob:
then we can’t fail

carl:
i don’t need your blood money!

bob:
oh, that doesn’t matter – our expenses are good

carl:
i don’t want your blood money!

kurt:
but you might as well take it; we think that you should

bob:
think of the things you can do with that money
choose any charity – give to the poor
we’ve noted your motives – we’ve noted your feelings
this isn’t blood money, it’s a- (kurt: a fee.)
a fee, nothing more

carl:
on thursday night, you’ll find him where you want him
far from the crowds in the garden of gethsemane

[choir]
well done, judas
good old judas
