Canaan Days – United Youth Theatre | Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat


Do you remember the good years in Canaan? The summers were endlessly gold The fields were a patchwork of clover The winters were never too cold
We’d stroll down the boulevards together And everything ’round us was fine Now the fields are dead and bare No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go? Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days Do you remember those wonderful parties? The splendour of Canaan’s cuisine
Those extravagant, elegant soirés The gayest the Bible has seen It’s funny, but, since we lost Joseph We’ve gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now We’d only eat them anyhow
And how I miss Joseph’s dreams Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go? Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days It’s funny, but, since we lost Joseph
We’ve gone to the other extreme Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn’t quite that bad And how I miss his entertaining dreams
Those Canaan days we used to know Where have they gone, where did–did they
go? Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan….. (French mumbling) Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
