The Brothers Come To Egypt Lyrics

    So back in Canaan the future looked rough
    Jacob's family were 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

    But 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
    Off to Egypt to see brother Jo

    So they all lay before Joseph's feet

    Mighty prince, give us something to eat

    Joseph found it a strain
    Not to laugh because
    Not a brother among them
    Knew who he was

    I shall now take them all for a ride
    After all they have tried fratricide
