Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat .. - text

Prologue

Narrator

Some folks dream of the wonders they'll do
Before their time on this planet is through
Some just don't have anything planned
They hide their hopes and their heads in the sand
Now I don't say who is wrong, who is right
But if by chance you are here for the night
Then all I need is an hour or two
To tell the tale of a dreamer like you

We all dream a lot-- some are lucky, some are not
But if you think it, want it, dream it, then it's real
You are what you feel

But all that I say can be told another way
In the story of a boy whose dream came true
And he could be you

Any Dream Will Do (single version)


Joseph

I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children

I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colors shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do

Joseph

A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do
Back Up Home

Jacob and Sons


Narrator

Way way back many centuries ago
Not long after the Bible began
Jacob lived in the land of Canaan
A fine example of a family man
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Depended on farming to earn their keep
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Spent all of his days in the fields with sheep

Jacob was the founder of a whole new nation
Thanks to the number of children he had
He was also known as Israel, but most of the time
His sons and his wives used to call him Dad
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Men of the soil, of the sheaf and crook
Jacob. Jacob and sons
A remarkable family in anyone's book

Narrator, Brothers, Female Ensemble & Children

Reuben was the eldest of the children of Israel
With Simeon and Levi the next in line
Napthali and Isaachar with Asher and Dan
Zebulon and Gad took the total to nine
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Benjamin and Judah, which leaves only one

Jacob. Jacob and sons
Joseph-- Jacob's favorite son
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Jacob. Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob, Jacob
Jacob and sons
Joseph's Coat


Jacob

Joseph's mother, she was quite my favorite wife
I never really loved another all my life
And Joseph was my joy because
He reminded me of her

Narrator

Through young Joseph, Jacob lived his youth again
Loved him, praised him, gave him all he could, but then
It made the rest feel second best
And even if they were

Brothers

Being told we're also-rans
Does not make us Joseph fans

Narrator

But where they had really missed the boat is

Brothers

We're great guys but no-one seems to notice

Narrator

Joseph's charm and winning smile
Failed to slay them in the aisle
And his father couldn't see the danger
He could not imagine any danger
He just saw in Joseph all his dreams come true

Jacob wanted to show the world he loved his son
To make it clear that Joseph was the special one
So Jacob bought his son a coat
A multi-colored coat to wear

Brothers & Female Ensemble

Joseph's coat was elegant
The cut was fine
The tasteful style was the
Ultimate in good design
And this is why it caught the eye
A king would stop and stare

Narrator

And when Joseph tried it on
He knew his sheepskin days were gone

Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children

Such a dazzling coat of many colors
How he loved his coat of many colors

Narrator

In a class above the rest
It even went well with his vest
Such a stunning coat of many colors
How he loved his coat of many colors
It was red and yellow and green and
Brown and blue

Joseph's brothers weren't
Too pleased with what they saw

Brothers

We had never liked him
All that much before
And now this coat
Has got our goat
We feel life is unfair

Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children

And when Joseph graced the scene
His bothers turned a shade of green
His astounding clothing took the biscuit

Brothers

Quite the smoothest person in the district

Joseph & Female Ensemble

I look handsome, I look smart
I am a walking work of art
Such a dazzling coat of many colors
How I love my coat of many colors

Narrator, Joseph, Ensemble & Children

It was red and yellow and green and brown
And scarlet and black and ocher and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And red and yellow and green and brown
Scarlet and black and ocher and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And blue

Joseph's Dreams


Narrator

Joseph's coat annoyed his brothers

Brothers

But what makes us mad
Are the things that Joseph tells us of the
Dreams he's often had

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
My sheaf was quit a sight to see
A golden sheaf and tall
Yours were green and second-rate
And really rather small

Brothers

This is not the kind of thing
We brothers like to hear
It seems to us that Joseph and his
Dreams should disappear

Joseph

I dreamed I saw eleven stars
The sun the moon and sky
Bowing down before my star,
It made me wonder why
Could it be that I was born
For higher things than you?
A post in someone's government
A ministry or two

Brothers

The dreams of our dear brother are
The decade's biggest yawn
His talk of stars and golden sheaves
Is just a load of corn
Not only is he tactless but
He's also rather dim
For there's eleven of us and
There's only one of him

The dreams of course will not come true
That is, we think they won't come true
That is, we hope they won't come true
What if he's right all along?

The dreams are more than crystal clear
The writing on the wall
Means that Joseph some day soon
Will rise above us all
The accuracy of the dreams
We brothers do not know
But one thing we are sure about
The dreamer has to go
Back Up Home

Poor, Poor, Joseph


Narrator

Nest 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 a pit

Brothers

Let us leave him here
All alone and he's bound to die

Narrator

Then 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 were 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, Ensemble & Children

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
Back Up Home

One More Angel In Heaven


Reuben

Father, we've something to tell you, a story of our time
A tragic but inspiring tale of manhood in its prime
You know you had a dozen sons
Well now that's not quite true
But feel no sorrow, do not grieve
He would not want you to

RR, RR's Wife, & MM

There's one more angel in heaven
There's one more star in the sky
Joseph we'll never forget you
It's tough but we're gonna get by
There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye

Brothers

But Joseph the things that you stood for

RR

Like truth and light never die

When I thing of his last great battle
A lump comes to my throat
It takes a man who knows no fear
To wrestle with a goat
His blood-stained coat is tribute to
His final sacrifice
His body may be past its peak
But his soul's in paradise

So long, little Jo
Adios, buckeroo
Ten-four, good buddy

Jacob

There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye

Brothers

But Joseph the things that you stood for

RR

Like truth and light never die

Brothers

Carve his name with pride and courage

Napthali

Let no tear be shed

Brothers

If he had not laid down his life
We all would now be dead
Back Up Home

Potiphar


Narrator

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
Back Up Home

Close Every Door


Joseph

Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light
Do what you want with me
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken my daytime
And torture my night
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers lie
Far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For I know I shall find
My own peace of mind
For I have been promised
A land of my own

Children

Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light

Joseph

Just give me a number
Instead of my name
Forget all about me
And let me decay
I do not matter
I'm only one person
Destroy me completely
Then throw me away

If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers lie
Far from this world

Close every door to me

Joseph, Ensemble & Children

Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For we know we shall find
Our own peace of mind
For we have been promised
A land of our own
Back Up Home

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 ny 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

Pharaoh Story


Narrator

Pharaoh, he was
A powerful man
With the ancient world
In the palm of his hand
To all intents and purposes he
Was Egypt with a capital E
Whatever he did
He was showered with praise
If he cracked a joke
Then you chortled for days
No one had rights or a
Vote but the king
In fact you might say
He was fairly right-wing

When Pharaoh's around,
Then you get down on the ground
If you ever find yourself near Ramses
Get town on your knees

Female Ensemble & Children

A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story

Narrator

Down at the other
End of the scale
Joseph is still
Doing time in jail
For even though he is
In with the guards
A lifetime in prison
Seems quite on the cards
But if my analysis of
The position is right
At the end of the tunnel
There's a glimmer of light
For all of a sudden
Indescribable things
Have shattered the sleep
Of both peasants and kings

Strange as it seems
There's been a run of crazy dreams
And a man who can interpret
Could go far
Could become a star

Female Ensemble & Children

Could be famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a big success

Narrator

Strange as it seems
There's been a run of crazy dreams
And a man who can interpret
Could go far
Could become a star

Narrator & Ensemble

Strange as it seems

And a man who can interpret

Ah
Could become a star

Poor, Poor Pharaoh


Narrator

Guess what? In his bed Pharaoh
Had an uneasy night
He had had a dream that pinned him
To his sheets with fright
No-one knew the meaning of this dream
What to do, whatever could it mean

Then his butler said

Butler

I know of a bloke in jail
Who is hot on dreams
Could explain old Pharaoh's tale

Narrator

Pharaoh said

Pharaoh

Well fetch this Joseph man
I need him to help me if he can

Narrator & Ensemble

Poor, poor Pharaoh
What'cha gonna do
Dreams are haunting you, hey
What'cha gonna do

Narrator

Chained and bound, afraid, alone
Joseph stood before the throne

Joseph

My service to Pharaoh has begun
Tell me your problems, mighty one

Song of the King (Seven Fat Cows)


Pharaoh & Ensemble

Well I was wandering along by the banks of the river
When seven fat cows came up out of the Nile, uh-huh
And right behind these fine healthy animals came
Seven other cows, skinny and vile, uh-huh

Well the thin cows ate the fat cows which I
Thought would do them good, uh-huh
But it didn't make them fatter like such
A monster supper should

Well the thin cows were as thin
As they had ever, ever, ever been
Well this dream has got me baffled
Hey, Joseph, won't you tell me what it means?

Well you know that kings ain't stupid
But I don't have a clue
So don't be cruel Joseph
Help me I beg of you

Well I was standing doing nothing in a field out of town
When I saw seven beautiful ears of corn, uh-huh
They were ripe, they were golden and
You've guessed it,
Right behind them came seven other ears
Tattered and torn, uh-huh

Well the bad corn ate the good corn
They came up from behind yes they did
Now Joseph here's the punch line
It's really gonna blow your mind, baby

Well the bad corn was as bad as it had ever, ever ever been
Well this dream has got me all shook up
Treat me nice and tell me what it means

Hey, hey, hey Joseph
Won't you tell poor old Pharaoh
What does this crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy dream mean?
Oh, yeah

Pharaoh's Dream Explained


Joseph

Seven years of bumper crops are on their way
Years of plenty, endless wheat and tons of hay
Your farms will boom, there won't be room
To store the surplus food you grow
After that, the future doesn't look so bright
Egypt's luck will change completely overnight
And famine's hand will stalk the land
With food an all-time low
Noble king, there is no doubt
What your dreams are all about
All these things you saw in your pajamas
Are a long range forecast for your farmers

Joseph, Female Ensemble & Children

And I'm sure it's crossed your mind
What it is you have to find
Find a man to lead you through the famine
With a flair for economic planning
But who this man could be
I just don't know
Who this man could be
I just don't know
Who this man could be
I just don't know
Back Up Home

Stone the Crows


Narrator

Pharaoh said

Pharaoh

Well stone the crows
This Joseph is a clever kid
Who'd have thought that fourteen cows
Could mean the things he said they did?

Joseph, you must help me further
I have got a job for you
You shall lead you through this crisis
You shall be my number two

Narrator & Female Ensemble

Pharaoh told his guards to fetch
A chisel form the local store
Whereupon he ordered them
To cut the chains that Joseph wore

Joseph got a royal pardon
And a host of splendid things
A chariot of gold, a cloak
A medal and some signet rings

Joseph-
Pharaoh's number two
Joseph-
Egypt looks to you

Joseph, Narrator & Female Ensemble

Joseph-
Pharaoh's number two
Joseph-
Egypt looks to you

Narrator & Female Ensemble

Seven summers on the trot
Were perfect just as joseph said
Joseph saw that food was gathered
Ready for the years ahead
Seven years of famine followed
Egypt didn't mind a bit
The first recorded rationing
In history was a hit

Female Ensemble

Joseph how can we ever say
All that we want to about you
We're so glad that you came our way
We would have perished without you

Pharaoh

Joseph we are the perfect team
Old buddies, that's you and me
I was wise to have chosen you
You'll be wise to agree

Female Ensemble

Joseph how can we ever say
All that we want to about you
We're so glad that you came our way
We would have perished without you

Pharaoh

We were in a jam
Would have baffled Abraham
But now we're a partnership
It's just a piece of cake

Female Ensemble

Greatest man since Noah
Only goes to shoah

Joseph

Anyone from anywhere can make it
If they get a lucky break

Narrator & Female Ensemble

This could be a happy ending
Perfect place to stop the show
Joseph after all has gone
About as far as he can go

But I'm sure that Jacob and
His other sons have crossed your mind
How had famine hit the family
Joseph left behind?
Back Up Home

Those Canaan Days


Simeon

Do you remember the good years in Canaan?
The summers were endlessly gold
The fields were a patchwork of clover
The winters were never too cold
We'd stroll down the boulevards together
And everything round us was fine

Jacob

Now the fields are dead and bare
No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine

Brothers

Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

Simeon

Do you remember those wonderful parties?
The splendor of Canaan's cuisine
Our extravagant, elegant soirees
The gayest the Bible has seen

It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now
We'd only eat them anyhow
I even find I'm missing Joseph's dreams

Brothers

Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

Simeon

It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn't quite that bad
And how we miss his entertaining dreams

Brothers

Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets

Simeon

To those Canaan days

Brothers

Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
Back Up Home

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

Zebulon

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
Off to Egypt to see brother Jo

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
Back Up Home

Grovel, Grovel


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 come 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?
Why on earth should I believe you?
I've no guarantee

Brothers & Narrator

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

Brothers & Narrator

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

Brothers & Narrator

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

Brothers

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

Narrator

Joseph handed them sackloads of food
And they grovelled in base gratitude

Female Ensemble

Then unseen, Joseph nipped 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 & Children

No No No No No
Back Up Home

Who's the Thief?


Joseph

Stop, you robbers-
Your little number's up
One of you has stolen
My precious golden cup

Narrator

Joseph started searching
Through his brothers' sacks
Everyone was nervous
No-one could relax

Children

Who's the thief?
Who's the thief?
Who's the thief?
Who's the thief?

Narrator & Children

Is it Reuben? No
Is it Simeon? No
Is it Napthali? No
Is it Dan? No
Is it Asher? No
Is it Isaachar? No
Is it Levi? No
Who's the man?
Is it Zebulon? No
Is it Gad? No
Is it Judah? No
Is it him?

Children

Could it be, could it be
Could it be, could it be
Could it be, could it be

Narrator

Could it possibly be Benjamin?

Children

Yes Yes Yes

Joseph

Benjamin, you nasty youth
Your crime has shocked me to the core
Never in my whole career
Have I encountered this before
Guards, seize him! Lock him in a cell
Throw the keys into the Nile as well

Narrator

Each of the brothers fell to his knees

Brothers

Show him some mercy, oh mighty one, please
He would not do that, he must have been framed
Jail us and beat us, we should blamed
Back Up Home

Benjamin Calypso


Brothers

Oh no - not he
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me
Benjamin is straighter than the tall palm tree

Judah

I hear the steel drums sing their song
They're singing man you know you've got it wrong
I hear the voice of the yellow bird
Whispering to me this is quite absurd

Judah & Brothers

Oh, yes - its true
Benjamin is straighter than the big bamboo
No ifs - No buts
Benjamin is honest as coconuts

Judah

Sure as the tide wash the golden sand
Benjamin is an innocent man
Sure as bananas need the sun
We are the criminal guilty ones

Judah, Brothers & Female Ensemble

Oh no - not he
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me
Benjamin is straighter than the tall palm tree

Judah

Sure as the tide wash the golden sand
Benjamin is an innocent man
Sure as bananas need the sun
We are the criminal guilty ones

Judah, Brothers & Female Ensemble

Oh no - not he
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me
Benjamin is straighter than the tall palm tree

Oh no - not he
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him - take me

Joseph knew by this his brothers now were honest men
The time had come at last to reunite them all again

It's me

Jacob In Egypt


Ensemble

So Jacob came to Egypt
No longer feeling old
And Joseph came to meet him
In his chariot
Of gold
Of gold
Of gold
Of gold
Back Up Home

Finale


Joseph

I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children

I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colors shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do

Joseph

A crash of drums

Narrator

A flash of light

Joseph

My golden coat flew out of sight

Joseph & Narrator

The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph, Narrator & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Full Company

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Give me my colored coat
My amazing colored coat
Give me my colored coat
My amazing colored Coat
