Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat script
Synopsis: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical or operetta with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story is based on the "coat of many colors" story of Joseph from the Bible's Book of Genesis.





Yours were green and second-rate And really rather small

This is not the kind of thing

We brothers like to hear

It seems to us that Joseph and his Dreams should disappear

I dreamed I saw eleven stars The sun the moon and sky Bowing down before my star,

It made me wonder why

Could it be that I was born

For higher things than you?

A post in someone's government A ministry or two

The dreams of our dear brother are The decade's biggest yawn

His talk of stars and golden sheaves Is just a load of corn

Not only is he tactless but He's also rather dim

For there's eleven of us and

There's only one of him

The dreams of course will not come true That is, we think they won't come true That is, we hope they won't come true What if he's right all along?

The dreams are more than crystal clear The writing on the wall

Means that Joseph some day soon

Will rise above us all

The accuracy of the dreams We brothers do not know

But one thing we are sure about The dream has to go!

Next day, far from home

The brothers planned the repulsive crime

Let us grab him now

Do him in, while we've got the time

This they did and made the most of it

Poor Poor Joseph
