Benjamin Calypso Lyrics

1993 Broadway revival
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the Musical - Benjamin Calypso Lyrics


BROTHERS:
Oh no - not he
How can you accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me
Benjamin is straightr than the tall palm tree

JUDAH:
I hear the steel drums sing their song
They're singing man you know you've got it wrong
I hear the voice of the yellow bird
Singing in the tree this is quite absurd
Oh yes

BROTHERS:
Oh yes

JUDAH:
It's true

BROTHERS:
It's true

JUDAH:
Benjamin is straighter than the big bamboo
No ifs

BROTHERS:
No ifs

JUDAH:
No buts

BROTHERS:
No buts

JUDAH:
Benjamin is honest as coconuts
Sure as the tide wash the golden sand
Benjamin is an innocent man
Sure as bananas need the sun
We are the criminal guilty ones

Oh no

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Oh no

JUDAH:
Not he

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Not he
How you can accuse him is a mystery

JUDAH:
Save him

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Save him

JUDAH:
Take me

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Take me
Benjamin is straighter than the tall palm tree

JUDAH, BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Oh no
Not he
How can you accuse him is a mystery
Save him
Take me
Benjamin is straightr than the tall palm tree

JUDAH:
Sure as the tide wash the golden sand
Benjamin is an innocent man
Sure as bananas need the sun
We are the criminal guilty ones
Oh no

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Oh no

JUDAH:
Not he

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Not he

JUDAH & ENSEMBLE:
How you can accuse him is a mystery

JUDAH:
Save him

BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Save him

JUDAH:
Take me

JUDAH, BROTHERS & ENSEMBLE:
Take me
Benjamin is straighter than the tall palm tree
Oh no - not he
How can you accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me
La la la la la la la
