"Tell the Rabble to be Quiet"

From the Andrew Lloyd Weber Rock Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar:

(at the 4:08 mark):
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.


Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting.
If every tongue were stilled
The noise would still continue.
The rocks and stone themselves would start to sing...
