Grovel Grovel

JOSEPH:



I dreamed that in the fields one day, the corn gave me a sign

Your eleven sheaves of corn all turned and bowed to mine

I dreamed I saw eleven stars, the sun and moon and sky

Bowing down before my star -- and now I realize why



How do I know where you come from? You could be spies

Telling me that you are hungry -- that could be lies

How do I know who you are?

Why do you think I should help you? Would you help me?

Why on earth should I believe you? I've no guarantee



BROTHERS:



Grovel, grovel, cringe, bow, stoop, fall

Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl



We are just eleven brothers, good men and true

Though we know we count for nothing when up next to you

Honesty's our middle name

Life is slowly ebbing from us, hope's almost gone

It's getting very hard to see us from sideways on



Grovel, grovel, cringe, bow, stoop, fall

Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl



JOSEPH:



I rather like the way you're talking, astute and sincere

Suddenly your tragic story gets me right here



BROTHERS:



This is what we hoped you'd say



JOSEPH:



All this tugging at my heartstrings seems quite justified

I shall give you what you came for and lots more beside



BROTHERS:



Thank you, thank you, cringe, bow, stoop, fall

Worship, worship, beg, kneel, sponge, crawl



NARRATOR:



Joseph handed them sackloads of food

And they grovelled with base gratitude

Then, unseen, Joseph nipped out around the back

And planted a cup in young Benjamin's sack

When the brothers were ready to go

Joseph turned to them all with a terrible stare and said

No! No! No! No! No!
