Lyrics

Yvonne Elliman

Maid by the fire:
I think I've seen you somewhere I remember
You were with that man they took away
I recognize your face

[Peter]
You've got the wrong man lady I don't know him
And I wasn't where he was tonight - never near the place
Soldier:
That's strange for I'm sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side and yet you denied -

[Peter]
I tell you I was never ever with him
Old man:
But I saw you too - it looked just like you

[Peter]
I don't know him!
Mary Magdalene:
Peter - don't you know what you have said
You've gone and cut him dead

[Peter]
I had to do it don't you see?
Or else they'd go for me
Mary Magdalene:
That's what he told us you would do -
I wonder how he knew ...
