Jacob & Sons/Joseph's Coat Lyrics

Jacob & Sons

Narrator

Way way back many centuries ago,

Not long after the Bible began

Jacob lived in the land of Canaan,

A fine example of a family man.

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

Depended on farming to earn their keep.

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

Spent all of his days in the fields with sheep.

Jacob was the founder of a whole new nation

Thanks to the number of children he had

He was also known as Israel, but most of the time

His sons and his wives used to call him Dad.

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

Men of the soil, of the sheaf and crook.

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

A remarkable family in anyone's book.

Narrator, Brothers, Female Ensemble & Children

Reuben was the eldest of the children of Israel

With Simeon and Levi the next in line

Naphtali and Issachar with Asher and Dan

Zebulun and Gad took the total to nine

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

Benjamin and Judah, which leaves only one

Jacob, Jacob and sons,

Joseph - Jacob's favourite son

Jacob, Jacob and sons

Jacob, Jacob and sons

Jacob, Jacob and sons

Jacob Jacob Jacob

Jacob and

Sons

JOSEPH'S COAT

Jacob

Joseph's mother, she was quite my favourite wife

I never really loved another all my life

And Joseph was my joy because

He reminded me of her

Narrator

Through young Joseph, Jacob lived his youth again

Loved him, praised him, gave him all he could, but then

It made the rest feel second best

And even if they were -

Brothers

Being told we're also-rans

Does not makes us Joseph fans

Narrator

But where they had really missed the boat is

Brothers

We're great guys but no-one seems to notice

Narrator

Joseph's charm and winning smile

Failed to slay them in the aisle

And his father couldn't see the danger

He could not imagine any danger

He just saw in Joseph all his dreams come true.

Jacob wanted to show the world he loved his son

To make it clear that Joseph was the special one

So Jacob bought his son a coat

A multi-coloured coat to wear

Brothers and Female Ensemble

Joseph's coat was elegant,

The cut was fine

The tasteful style was the

Ultimate in good design

And this is why it caught the eye

A king would stop and stare

Narrator

And when Joseph tried it on

He knew his sheepskin days were gone

Narrator & Female Ensemble & Children

Such a dazzling coat of many colours

How he loved his coat of many colours

Narrator

In a class above the rest

It even went well with his vest

Such a stunning coat of many colours

How he loved his coat of many colours

It was red and yellow and green and brown and

Blue

Joseph's brothers weren't

Too pleased with what they saw

Brothers

We have never liked him

All that much before

And now this coat

Has got our goat

We feel life is unfair

Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children

And whe Joseph graced the scene

His brothers turned a shade of green

His astounding clothing took the biscuit

Brothers

Quite the smoothest person in the district

Joseph & Female Ensemble

I look handsome, I look smart

I am a walking work of art

Such a dazzling coat of colours

How I love my coat of many colours

Narrator, Joseph, Ensemble & Children

It was red and yellow and green and brown

And scarlet and black and ochre and peach

And ruby and olive and violet and fawn

And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve

And cream and crimson and silver and rose

And azure and lemon and russet and grey

And purple and white and pink and orange

And red and yellow and green and brown and

Scarlet and black and ochre and peach

And ruby and olive and violet and fawn

And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve

And cream and crimson and silver and rose

And azure and lemon and russet and grey

And purple and white and pink and orange

And blue
