Joseph in Egypt Land (Walk Like an Egyptian)


Joseph in Egypt Land

(Walk Like an Egyptian)



Day 1



When Joseph was a little boy

He was one of twelve brother’s man

They sold him out (O ay O)

He woke up on a caravan



In Egypt land Joe found himself

In service of his master man

He had a wife (O ay O)

Joe ended up in the Prisian



He knew the themes of the jailer’s dreams, yeah

Ay O way O, O ay way O

Walk like an Egyptian



Day 2

It took a while but word spread
Joe knew what dreams were all about
When Pharaoh called (O ay O)
He told him about the coming drought

You better start acting now
By storing up all the grain you can
Then you’ll be set (O ay O)
When famine descends on your land

 It wasn’t me but God you see, so

Ay O way O, O ay way O

Walk like an Egyptian



Day 3

Joseph was now moving up

From Prison heat to the Palace fan,

He wisely ruled, (O ay O)

He’d become the king’s right hand man



He saved and stored up one fifth

Of all the crops while the Nile flowed

So when it stopped (O ay O)

The food he’d saved was quite a load



God gives where wisdom lives, so

Ay O way O, O ay way O

Walk like an Egyptian

Day 4



Remember Joe had 12 bro’s

Yeah, the ones who had sold him out

They were starved (O ay O)

They had no warning of the drought



They found their way to Egypt Land

And bowed before our hero man

What would he do (O ay O)

Forgiveness was in his plan



God’s love comes from above, yeah

Ay O way O, O ay way O

Walk like an Egyptian





Day 5



Joseph’s life was filled with ups

But in between there were also downs

But through it all (O ay O)

God’s steadfast love always abounds



And after many years apart

Joe finally had a family again

They’ll sing and dance (O ay O)

And learned to walk like Egyptians



They’re in his debt, hope they don’t forget, sing

Ay O way O, O ay way O

Walk like an Egyptian
