Andrew Lloyd Webber – Benjamin Calypso lyrics

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
Singing in the tree it is quite absurd
Judah & Brothers
Oh, yes - it's 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
La la la la la la la la...
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
La la la la la la la la

    This is the brother and mainly Judah pleading with the pharaohs number two (not knowing that he is actually Joseph) to spare the life of there youngest brother Benjamin. This was a test that Joseph ran to see if his brothers had changed to see if they would protect each other and not leave him for dead like they did to Joseph can with this song Joseph finds that his brothers now were honest men and he could revive who he really is to them.
