poor poor pharao lyrics – joseph

(narrator)
guess what? in his bed pharaoh
had an uneasy night
he had had a dream that pinned him
to his sheets with fright
no-one knew the meaning of this dream
what to do, whatever could it mean

then his butler said

(butler)
i know of a bloke in jail
who is hot on dreams
could explain old pharaoh’s tale

(narrator)
pharaoh said

(pharaoh)
well fetch this joseph man
i need him to help me if he can

(narrator & ensemble)
poor, poor pharaoh
what’cha gonna do
dreams are haunting you, hey
what’cha gonna do

(narrator)
chained and bound, afraid, alone
joseph stood before the throne

(joseph)
my service to pharaoh has begun
tell me your problems, mighty one
