Jacob & Sons/Joseph's Coat Jacob & Sons


Narrator

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,
Spen 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 nex in line
Naphtali and Isaachar with Asher and Dan
Zebulun 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 favourite son
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob, Jacob and sons
Jacob Jacob Jacob
Jacob and
Sons

JOSEPH'S COAT

Jacob

Joseph's mother, she was quite my favourite wife
I never really loved another all my life
And Joseph was my joy because
He reminded me of her
Narrator

Through young Joseph, Jacob lived his youth again
Loved him, praised him, gave him all he could, but then
It made the rest feel second best
And even if they were -
Brothers

Being told we're also-rans
Does not makes us Joseph fans
Narrator

But where they had really missed the boat is
Brothers

We're great guys but no-one seems to notice
Narrator

Joseph's charm and winning smile
Failed to slay them in the aisle
And his father couldn't see the danger
He could not imagine any danger
He just saw in Joseph all his dreams come true
Jacob wanted to show the world he loved his son
To make it clear that Joseph was the special one
So Jacob bought his son a coat
A multi-coloured coat to wear

Brothers and Female Ensemble

Joseph's coat was elegant,
The cut was fine
The tasteful style was the
Ultimate in good design
And this is why it caught the eye
A king would stop and stare
Narrator

And when Joseph tried it on
He knew his sheepskin days were gone
Narrator & Female Ensemble & Children

Such a dazzling coat of many colours
How he loved his coat of many coloures
Narrator

In a class above the rest
It even went well with his vest
Such a stunning coat of many colours
How he loved his coat of many colours
It was red and yellow and green and
Brown and blue
Joseph's brothers weren't
Too pleased with what they saw

Brothers

We have never liked him
All that much before
And now this coat
Has got our goat
We feel life is unfair
Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children

And whe Joseph graced the scene
His brothers turned a shade of green
His astounding clothing took the biscuit
Brothers

Quite the smoothest person in the district
Joseph & Female Ensemlbe

I look handsome, I look smart
I am walking work of art
Such a dazzling coat of colours
How I love my coat of many colours
Narrator, Joseph, Ensemble & Children

It was red and yellow and green and brown
And scarlet and black and ochre and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And red and yellow and green and brown and
Scarlet and black and ochre and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And blue
