(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
Sha la la Joseph you're doing fine
You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time

Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go, go, 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, go, 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

(Narrator)
Ahead of your time

(Joseph)
Ahead of my time

(Narrator)
Ahead of your time

(Joseph)
Ahead of my

(All)
Time
