Potiphar Lyrics

    Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains and sold
    Where he was bought by a captain named Potiphar

    Narrator & MM
    Potiphar had very few cares
    He was one of Egypt's millionaires
    Having made a fortune buying shares in


    Narrator & MM
    Potiphar had made a huge pile
    Owned a large percentage of the Nile

    Meant that I could really live in style

    Narrator & MM
    And he did

    Joseph was an unimportant
    Slave who found he liked his master
    Consequently worked much harder
    Even with devotion

    Poitphar could see that Joseph
    Was a cut above the average
    Made him leader of his household
    Maximum promotion

    Narrator & MM
    Potiphar was cool and so fine

    But my wife would never toe the line

    Narrator & MM
    It's all there in chapter thirty-nine
    Of Genesis

    She was beautiful but


    Narrator & MM
    Saw a lot of men against his will
    He would have to tell her that she still
    Was his

    Joseph's looks and handsome figure
    Had attracted her attention
    Every morning she would beckon

    Mrs. Potiphar
    Come and lie with me, love

    Joseph wanted to resist her
    'Till one day she proved too eager
    Joseph cried in vain

    Please stop
    I don't believe in free love

    Potiphar was counting sheckels
    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

    Joseph, I'll see you rot in jail
    The things 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
