Lyric Pharao Story


(Narrator)
Pharaoh, he was
A powerful man
With the ancient world
In the palm of his hand
To all intents and purposes he
Was Egypt with a capital E
Whatever he did
He was showered with praise
If he cracked a joke
Then you chortled for days
No one had rights or a
Vote but the king
In fact you might say
He was fairly right-wing

When Pharaoh s around,
Then you get down on the ground
If you ever find yourself near Ramses
Get town on your knees

(Female Ensemble & Children)
A Pharaoh s story
A Pharaoh s story
A Pharaoh s story
A Pharaoh s story

(Narrator)
Down at the other
End of the scale
Joseph is still
Doing time in jail
For even though he is
In with the guards
A lifetime in prison
Seems quite on the cards
But if my analysis of
The position is right
At the end of the tunnel
There s a glimmer of light
For all of a sudden
Indescribable things
Have shattered the sleep
Of both peasants and kings

Strange as it seems
There s been a run of crazy dreams
And a man who can interpret
Could go far
Could become a star

(Female Ensemble & Children)
Could be famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a big success

(Narrator)
Strange as it seems
There s been a run of crazy dreams
And a man who can interpret
Could go far
Could become a star

(Narrator & Ensemble)
Could be famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a big success

Strange as it seems
There s been a run of crazy dreams
And a man who can interpret
Could go far
Could become a star

Ah
Could become a star
Could be famous
Could be a big success
Could be famous
Could be a star
