Those Canaan Days Lyrics

1993 Broadway revival
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the Musical - Those Canaan Days Lyrics


SIMEON:
Do you remember the good years in Canaan?
The summers were endlessly gold
The fields were a patchwork of clover
The winters were never too cold
We'd stroll down the boulevards together
And averything round us was fine

JACOB:
Now the fileds are dead and bare
No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine

BROTHERS:
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

SIMEON:
Do you remember those wonderful parties?
The splendour of Canaan's cuisine
Our extravagant, elegant soirees
The gayest the Bible has seen
It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now
We only eat them anyhow
I even find I'm missing Joseph's dreams

BROTHERS:
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

SIMEON:
It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn't quite that bad
And how we miss his entertaining dreams

BROTHERS:
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets

SIMEON:
To those Canaan days

BROTHERS:
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
