Pharoah, 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 Pharoah's around,
Then you get down on the ground.
If you ever find yourself near Rameses,
Get down on your knees.

Down at the other end of the scale,
Joseph is still doing time in jail,
For even though he's in with the guards,
A lifetime in prison seems quite on the cards.

But if my analyis of the position is right,
At the end of the tunnel is 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.

(Music)

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.

(Music)

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.

Could be a star!
