Lyrics Potiphar

Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains and sold
Where he was bought by a captain named Potiphar
Potiphar had very few cares he was one of
Egypt's millionaires
Having made a fortune buying shares in
Potiphar had made a huge pile owned a large percentage of the Nile
Meant that I could really live in style
And he did
Oh, I did
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
Potiphar was cool and so fine
But my wife would never toe the line
It's all there in chapter thirty-nine of Genesis
Don't believe everything you read, dear
She was beautiful but
Evil saw a lot of men against his will
He would have to tell her that she still was his
You're mine
Joseph's looks and handsome figure had attracted her attention
Every morning she would beckon
Come and lie with me, love
Joseph wanted to resist her 'till one day she proved too eager
Joseph cried in vain
Please stop
I don't believe in free love
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
Letting out a mighty roar
Potiphar burst through the door
I'll see you rot in jail
The things you have done are beyond the pale
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
