Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – Poor, Poor Pharaoh lyrics

Poor, poor pharaoh

Guess What? In his bed Pharaoh
Had an uneasy night
He had had a dream that pinned him
To his sheets with fright
No-one knew the meaning of his dream
What to do, whatever could it mean?

Then his butler said

I know this bloke in jail
Who is hot on dreams,
Could explain old Pharaoh's tale

Pharaoh said

Well fetch this Joseph man
I need him to help me if he can

Narrator & Ensemble
Poor, poor Pharaoh
What's he gonna do
Dreams are haunting you, hey,
What'cha gonna do

Chained and bound, afraid, alone
Joseph stood before the throne

Josephmy service to Pharaoh has begun
Tell me your problems, mighty one
