Potiphar Lyrics

 

Potiphar Song Lyrics


Narrator
Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains and sold,
Where he was bought by a captain named by Potiphar
Narrator & Male Ensemble
Potiphar had very few cares
He was one of Egypt's millionaires
Having made a fortune buying shares in
Potiphar
Pyramids
Narrator & Male Ensemble
Potiphar had made a huge pile
Owned a large percentage of the Nile
Potiphar
Meant that I could really live in style
Narrator & Male Ensemble
And he did
Narrator
Joseph was an unimportant
Slave who found he liked his master
Consequently worked much harder
Even with devotion
Potiphar could see that Joseph
Was a cut above the average
Made him leader of his household
Maximum promotion
Narrator & Male Ensemble
Potiphar was cool and so fine
Potiphar
But my wife would never toe the line
Narrator & Male Ensemble
It's all there in chapter thirty-nine
Of Genesis
She was beautiful but
Mrs. Potiphar
Evil
Narrator & Male Ensemble
Saw a lot of men against his will
He would have to tell he that she still
Was his
Narrator
Joseph's looks and handsome figure
Had attracted her attention
Every morning she would beckon
Mrs. Potiphar
Come and lie with me love
Narrator
Joseph wanted to resist her,
Till one day she proved too eager
Joseph cried in vain
Joseph
Please stop
I don't believe in free love!
Narrator
Potiphar was counting shekels
In his den below the bedroom
When he heard a mighty rumpus
Clattering above him
Suddenly he knew his riches
Couldn't buy him what he wanted
Gold would never make him happy
If she didn't love him
Narrator, Ensemble & Children
Letting out a mighty roar
Potiphar burst through the door
Potiphar
Joseph, I'll see you rot in jail
The things that you have done are beyond the pale
Narrator, Ensemble & Children
Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell
Things ain't going well, hey, locked up in a cell
Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell
Things ain't going well, hey, locked up in a cell
Locked up in a cell
