Joseph's Dreams Lyrics

    Joseph's coat annoyed his brothers

    But what makes us mad
    Are the things that Joseph tells us of the
    Dreams he's often had

    I dreamed that in the fields one day
    The corn gave me a sign
    Your eleven sheaves of corn
    All turned and bowed to mine
    My sheaf was quit a sight to see
    A golden sheaf and tall
    Yours were green and second-rate
    And really rather small

    This is not the kind of thing
    We brothers like to hear
    It seems to us that Joseph and his
    Dreams should disappear

    I dreamed I saw eleven stars
    The sun the moon and sky
    Bowing down before my star,
    It made me wonder why
    Could it be that I was born
    For higher things than you?
    A post in someone's government
    A ministry or two

    The dreams of our dear brother are
    The decade's biggest yawn
    His talk of stars and golden sheaves
    Is just a load of corn
    Not only is he tactless but
    He's also rather dim
    For there's eleven of us and
    There's only one of him

    The dreams of course will not come true
    That is, we think they won't come true
    That is, we hope they won't come true
    What if he's right all along?

    The dreams are more than crystal clear
    The writing on the wall
    Means that Joseph some day soon
    Will rise above us all
    The accuracy of the dreams
    We brothers do not know
    But one thing we are sure about
    The dreamer has to go
