  • Tim Rice – Go, Go,go Joseph (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

    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

    1st MAN
    Hey dreamer, don’t be so upset

    2nd 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 butle 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
    Now 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
