Pharoah's Story

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice and appears on the musical soundtrack Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1968).

(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 Rameses,
Get down on your knees

A pharaoh story, a pharaoh story
A pharaoh story, a pharaoh story


Down at the other end of the scale,
Joseph is still doing time in jail
For even though he's 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 is 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

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

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

Could be a star!
