Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – Jacob & Sons lyrics

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
