The Brothers come to Egypt

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 (Here we go!)
Off to Egypt to see brother Joe

 

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

 

Joseph:
I dreamed that in the fields one day,
The corn gave me a sign
Your eleven sheaves of corn
All turned and bowed to mine
I dreamed I saw eleven stars,
The sun the moon and sky
Bowing down before my star,
And now I realize why

How do I know where you came from?
You could be spies
Telling me that you are hungry -
That could be lies
How do I know who you are?
Why do you think I should help you?
Would you help me? (Ye s!)
Why on earth should I believe you?
I've no guarantee

Narrator & Brothers:
Grovel, grovel, cringe, bow, stoop, fall
Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl

Grovel, grovel, cringe, bow, stoop, fall
Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl



Brothers:
We are just eleven brothers,
Good men and true
Though we know we count for nothing
When up next to you
Honesty's our middle name
Life is slowly ebbing from us,
Hope's almost gone
It's getting very hard to see us
From sideways on

Narrator & Brothers:
Grovel, grovel, cringe, bow, stoop, fall
Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl

Joseph:
I rather like the way you're talking,
Astute and sincere
Suddenly your tragic story
It gets me right here

Brothers:
This is what we hoped he'd say

Joseph:
All this tugging at my heartstrings
Seems quite justified
I shall give you what you came for
And lots more beside

Narrator & Brothers:
Thank you, thank you, cringe, bow, stoop, fall
Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl

Thank you, thank you, cringe, bow, stoop, fall
Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl


Narrator:
Joseph handed them sack loads of food
And they groveled with base gratitude

Female Ensemble:
Then, unseen, Joseph out around the back
And planted a cup in young Benjamin's sack

Narrator:
When the brothers were ready to go
Joseph turned to them all
With a terrible stare and said

Joseph:
No

No

No

No

No
