Lyric The Brothers Come To Egypt


(Narrator)
So back in Canaan the future looked rough
Jacob s family were finding it tough

(Brothers)
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

(Reuben)
We will starve if we hang around here

(Zebulon)
But in Egypt there s food going spare

(Asher)
They ve got corn
They ve got meat
They ve got fruit and drinks

(Dan)
And if we have the time
We could see the Sphinx

(Narrator)
So they finally decided to go
Off to Egypt to see brother Jo

So they all lay before Joseph s feet

(Brothers)
Mighty prince, give us something to eat

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

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