Andrew Lloyd Webber – Pharaoh Story lyrics

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 Rameses -- get down on your knees

Handmaidens:

A Pharaoh story, a Pharaoh 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

Handmaidens:

Could be famous, could be a big success

Narrator:

Could be a star!
