The Main Event / Fight (Made Famous by Barbra Streisand) - Lyrics

Ceasar built an empire
Ruled from shore to shore
Now he's mostly remembered
For when a baby was born
He wanted everyone counted
So everybody went
He was the main attraction,
But even he missed the main event
Later on at the temple
Time for the offering came
The coffers rang with the money
The wealthy people gave
Jesus said, "See that woman?"
"She gave her last two cents."
Y'all were the main attraction
But she was the main event
So it makes me wonder
What goes missing in our lives
What matters most so often goes unrecognized
Crowds at the crucifixition
All the disciples fled
Three days found in hiding
Underneath their beds
The women went to the graveyard
Came back and told the men,
"You saw the main attraction,"
"But you all missed the main event."
So it makes me wonder
What goes missing in our lives
What matters most so often goes unrecognized
When Jesus said, "Seek the kingdom"
Maybe what he meant
Is this world's main attractions,
Are hardly ever, almost never
The main event
