POTIPHAR



Narrator:
Spoken [ Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains and sold
Where he was bought by a captain named Potiphar ]

Narrator & MM:
Potiphar had very few cares
He was one of Egypt's millionaires
Having made a fortune buying shares in

Potiphar: Pyramids

Narrator & MM:
Potiphar had made a huge pile
Owned a large percentage of the Nile

Potiphar:
Meant that I could really live in style

Narrator & MM:
And he did

Narrator:
Joseph was an unimportant
Slave who found he liked his master
Consequently worked much harder
Even with devotion
Poitphar could see that Joseph
Was a cut above the average
Made him leader of his household
Maximum promotion

Narrator & MM:
Potiphar was cool and so fine

Potiphar:
But my wife would never toe the line

Narrator & MM:
It's all there in chapter thirty-nine
Of Genesis
She was beautiful but

Potiphar:
Evil

Narrator & MM:
Saw a lot of men against his will
He would have to tell her that she still
Was his

Narrator:
Joseph's looks and handsome figure
Had attracted her attention
Every morning she would beckon

Mrs. Potiphar:
Come and lie with me, love

Narrator:
Joseph wanted to resist her
'Till one day she proved too eager
Joseph cried in vain

Joseph:
Please stop I don't believe in free love

Narrator:
Potiphar was counting sheckels
In his den below the bedroom
When he heard a mighty rumpus
Clattering above him
Suddenly he knew his riches
Couldn't buy him what he wanted
Gold would never make him happy
If she didn't love him

Narrator, Ensemble & Children:
Letting out a mighty roar
Potiphar burst through the door

Potiphar:
Joseph, I'll see you rot in jail
The things you have done are beyond the pale

Narrator, Ensemble & Children:
Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell
Things ain't going well, hey, locked up in a cell
Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell
Things ain't going well, hey, locked up in a cell
