The Brothers Come To Egypt Lyrics

1993 Broadway revival
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the Musical - The Brothers Come To Egypt Lyrics


NARRATOR:
So back in Canaan the future looked rough
Jacob's family were finding it tough

BROTHERS:
For the famine has caught us unprepared
We are thin
We are ill
We are getting scared
It's enough to make anyone weep
We are down to our very last sheep

REUBEN:
We will starve if we hang around here

ZEBULUN:
But in Egypt there's food going spare

ASHER:
They've got corn
They've got meat
They've got fruit and drinks

DAN:
And if we have the time
We could see the Sphinx

NARRATOR:
So they finally decided to go
Off to Egypt to see brother Jo
So they all lay before
Joseph's feet

BROTHERS:
Mighty prince, give us something to eat

NARRATOR:
Joseph found it a strain
Not to laugh because
Not a brother among them
Knew who he was

JOSEPH:
I shall now take them all for a ride
After all they have tried fratricide
