Tune: "Good King Wenceslas"
Jacob had a favorite child;
Joseph his young son.
Made a special coat for him,
But not for everyone.
His ten brothers hated him,
Thought it was not fair.
Wanted to get rid of him.
They just did not care-are-are.
Verse 2: The Brothers:
See that dreamer coming, let's
Throw him in the well.
We will soon be rid of him.
None of us will tell.
Here come traders down the road.
We will sell our brother.
Favorite son will then be gone.
We will have each oth-oth-er.
They killed a goat and in the blood
Dipped his special clothes.
Let their poor old father grieve
As ev-ry'bo-dy knows.
Years would pass before the truth
Would be fully known.
Joseph lived in Egypt land
Till he was full grow-ow-own.
