Poor Poor Joseph

Narrator:

Next day, far from home,

The brothers planned the repulsive crime  

 

Brothers:

Let us grab him now,

Do him in, while we've got the time  

 

Narrator:

This they did and made the most of it

Tore his coat and flung him in pit  

 

Brothers:

Let us leave him here,

All alone, and he's bound to die  

 

Narrator:

When some Ishmaelites,

A hairy crew, came riding by

In a flash the brothers changed their plan  

 

Brothers:

We need cash. Let's sell him if we can  

 

Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children:

Poor, poor Joseph, what'cha gonna do?

Things look bad for you, hey, what'cha gonna do?

Poor, poor Joseph, what'cha gonna do?

Things look bad for you, hey, what'cha gonna do?  

 

Brothers:

Could you use a slave,

You hairy bunch of Ishmaelites?

Young, strong, well-behaved,

Going cheap and he reads and writes  

 

Narrator:

In a trice the dirty deal was done

Silver coins for Jacob's favorite son  

Then the Ishmaelites Galloped off with the slave in tow

Off to Egypt where Joseph was not keen to go

It wouldn't be a picnic he could tell  

 

Joseph:

And I don't speak Egyptian very well  

 

Narrator:

Joseph's brothers tore

His precious multi-colored coat

Having ripped it up,

They next attacked a passing goat

Soon the wretched creature was no more

They dipped his coat in blood and guts and gore  

 

Narrator:

Oh now brothers, how low can you stoop?

You make a sordid group, hey, how low can you stoop?

Poor, poor Joseph, sold to be a slave

Situation's grave, hey, sold to be a slave

Poor Poor Joseph - Joseph
