Go, go, go, Joseph
Go, go, go, Joseph
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob, Jacob
Jacob and sons

Red, yellow, green, brown
Scarlet, black, ocher, peach
Ruby, olive, violet, fawn

He looks handsome, he looks smart
He is a walking work of art
In my dazzling coat of many colors
How I love my coat of many colors

It was red, yellow, green, brown
Scarlet, black, ocher, peach, ruby
Olive, violet, fawn, lilac, gold
Chocolate, mauve

Cream and crimson and silver
And rose and azure and lemon
And russet and gray and purple
And white and pink and orange
And blue

There's one more angel in heaven
There's one more star in the sky
Joseph, we'll never forget you
It's tough but we're gonna get by

There's one more angel in heaven
There's one more star in the sky
Joseph, the things that you stood for
Like truth and light never die

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 dream coat
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 dream coat
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 dream coat
Ahead of your time

A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story
A Pharaoh's story

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 famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a big success

Could become a star
Could be famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a big success

Joseph, Pharaoh's number two
Joseph, Egypt looks to you
Joseph, Pharaoh's number two
Joseph, Egypt looks to you
Joseph

Well I was wanderin'
Along by the banks of the river
When seven fat cows
Came up out of the Nile
Uh huh, oh yeah

And right behind these
Fine healthy animals came
Seven other cows skinny and vile
Uh huh, oh yeah

Well the thin cows ate
The fat cows which I
Thought would do them good
Uh huh, oh yeah

But it didn't make them fatter
Like such a monster supper should
Well the thin cows were as thin
As they had ever, ever, ever, ever been

This dream has got me baffled
Hey, Joseph, what does it mean?
Well, you know that kings ain't stupid
But I don't have a clue
Don't be cruel, Joseph
Help me now, I beg of you

So back in Canaan
The future looked rough
Jacob's family was
Finding it tough

For the famine has
Caught us unprepared
We are thin, we are ill
We are getting scared

It's enough to make anyone weep
We are down to our very last sheep
We will starve if we hang around here
And in Egypt there's food going spare

They've got corn, they've got meat
They've got fruit and drinks
And if we have the time
We could see the Sphinx

So they finally decided to go
Here we go
Off to Egypt to see brother Jo

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 yes, it's true

Benjamin is straighter
Than the big bamboo
No' Ifs', no 'Buts'
Benjamin is honest
As coconuts, 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

So Jacob came to Egypt
No longer feeling old
And Joseph came to meet him
In his chariot of the gold, of gold, of gold

Give me my colored coat
My amazing colored coat
Give me my colored coat
My amazing colored coat
