Brothers Come to Egypt lyrics

Brothers Come to Egypt


So back in Canaan the future looked rough
Jacob's family were finding it tough

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

We will starve if we hang around here

But in Egypt there's food going spare

They've got corn
They've got meat
They've got fruit and drinks

And if we have the time
We could see the Sphinx

So they finally decided to go
Off to Egypt to see brother Jo
So they all lay before
Joseph's feet


Mighty prince, give us something to eat

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

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