GO,GO, GO JOSEPH


Narrator:
Joseph's luck was really out
His spirit and his fortune low
Alone he sat, alone he thought
Of happy times he used to know

First Man:
Hey dreamer, don't be so upset

Second Man:
Hey Joseph, you're not beaten yet

Narrator & Ensemble:
Go, go go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Don't give up Joseph fight till you drop
We've read the book and you come out on top

Narrator:
Now into Joseph's prison cell
Were flung two very frightened men

Baker & Butler:
We don't think that we will ever
See the light of day again
Hey Joseph, help us if you can
We've had dreams that we don't understand

Narrator & Ensemble:
Both men were servants of Pharaoh the King
Both in the doghouse for doing their thing

Narrator:
One was a baker, a cook in his prime
One was a butler, the Jeeves of his time

Joseph:
Tell me of your dreams my friends
And I will tell you what they show
Though I cannot guarantee
To get it right, I'll have a go

Narrator:
First the butler, trembling took the floor
Nervously he spoke of what he saw

Butler:
There I was standing in front of a vine
I picked some grapes and I crushed them to wine
I gave some to Pharaoh who drank from my cup
I tried to interpret but I had to give up

Joseph:
You will soon be free, my friend
So do not worry any more
The king will let you out of here
You'll buttle as you did before

Narrator:
Next the baker rose to tell his dream
Hoping it would have a similar theme

Baker:
There I was standing with baskets of bread
High in the sky I saw birds overhead
Who flew to my baskets and ate every slice
Give me the message, like his would be nice

Joseph:
Sad to say your dream is not
The kind of dream I'd like to get
Pharaoh has it in for you
Your execution date is set
Don't rely on all I said I saw
It's just that I have not been wrong before

Ensemble:
Go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time
Go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time
Go, go, go, go Go, go, go, go Go, go, go, go Go, go, go, go Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go Joseph you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph you'll make it some day
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Narrator:
Ahead of your time

Joseph:
Ahead of my time

Narrator:
Ahead of your time

Joseph:
Ahead of my

All:
Time
