The Lyrics

The events of this song are biblical (Genesis 37).
Leah cried when she got the word
Said to Rachel, "I guess you heard
About Joseph."
Papa ran to the window and he looked outside.
Saw twelve donkeys, but he spied
That only eleven of the animals were giving a ride.

Oh we don't know 'bout his future or where he's gonna go.
We'll have to tell Dad something. He's gonna wanna know.
But for seventeen years we have had to put up with Joseph.
Seventeen years he'd taken every chance
To show he's Papa's favorite. We had to take a stance.
So he's gotta get used to not living his life
Through Joseph.

We grew up together and with Rachel and Dad
I'll never forget the dream he had
Brother Joseph.
"The stars," he said, "will worship him."
But he added, "Her and him
Will worship me too." Joseph just grinned.

Oh we don't know 'bout his future or where he's gonna go.
We'll have to tell Dad something. He's gonna wanna know.
But for seventeen years we have had to put up with Joseph.
Seventeen years he'd taken every chance
To show he's Papa's favorite. We had to take a stance.
So he's gotta get used to not living his life
Through Joseph.

Papa flipped out, for he didn't know
That he would impress the great Potifo
Meaning Joseph.
Dad, Joseph is gone but we're still here
You know we've been waiting seventeen years.
You're our father too. There's nothing to fear.

Oh we don't know 'bout his future or where he's gonna go.
We'll have to tell Dad something. He's gonna wanna know.
But for seventeen years we have had to put up with Joseph.
Seventeen years he'd taken every chance
To show he's Papa's favorite. We had to take a stance.
So he's gotta get used to not living his life
Through Joseph.

Oh I’ll never get used to not living my life
Through Joseph.
