Potiphar Lyrics
[Narrator:]
Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains and sold,
Where he was bought by a captain named by Potiphar

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
Potiphar had very few cares
He was one of Egypt millionaires
Having made a fortune buying shares in

[Potiphar:]
Pyramids

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
Potiphar had made a huge pile
Owned a large percentage of the Nile

[Potiphar:]
Meant that I could really live in style

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
And he did

[Potiphar:]
Oh, I did

[Narrator:]
Joseph was an unimportant
Slave who found he liked his master
Consequently worked much harder
Even with devotion
Potiphar could see that Joseph
Was a cut above the average
Made him leader of his household
Maximum promotion

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
Potiphar was cool and so fine

[Potiphar:]
But my wife would never toe the line

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
It's all there in chapter thirty-nine
Of Genesis
She was beautiful but

[Mrs. Potiphar:]
Evil

[Narrator & Male Ensemble:]
Saw a lot of men against his will
He would have to tell he that she still
Was his

[Potiphar:]
You're mine!

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

[Mrs. Potiphar:]
Come and lie with me, love

[Narrator:]
Joseph wanted to resist her,
Till one day she proved too eager
Joseph cried in vain

[Joseph:]
Please stop
I don't believe in free love!

[Mrs. Potiphar:]
Pity

[Narrator:]
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

[Potiphar:]
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
Locked up in a cell
