The second one's name was Joseph,

A very different song, no relation to "Dives and Lazarus." Part of the rugby repertoire.

What's the melody?

Dives and Lazarus probably sung by Peoples Liberation Front of Judea etc ( maybe not but what did the Romans do for us anyway?)

The version I (used to) know began

Once upon a time there were three Jews
Once upon a time there were three Jews
Three-ee, three-ee Jews, Jews, Jews
Three-ee, three-ee Jews, Jews, Jews
Once upon a time there were three Jews

They all came down from Jericho
They all came down from Jericho
Jerry, Jerry, Co Co Co
Jerry, Jerry, Co Co Co
They all came down from Jericho

They all went down to Oswaldtwistle
They all went down to Oswaldtwistle
Oswald, Oswald, twistle twistle twistle
Oswald, Oswald, twistle twistle twistle
They all went down to Oswaldtwistle

I'm almost sure it also had a verse for each of their names, and possibly other verses as well.

Both Jericho and Oswaldtwistle are in mid-Lancashire, quite some way from east Cheshire where I learned it in my childhood.

I'll try to make an ABC of the tune and post it here.

This is the version I sing, which is an amalgam of two versions I've heard over the years... I can post both of those if it's any help?

Although some of the lines may look as if they don't scan, they do work!!

I'll post the tune in ABC if this is the version you require.

Two Jews/Two Hebrews

There were two Jews who lived up in Jerusalem
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum
One was rich and the other was a-poor-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

CHORUS:
Hora-jarum, hora-jarum,
Skin 'im a Spanish onion,
Ooh! What a funny 'un
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

The first Jew died and he went up into Heaven-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum
Had his supper with the saints at a quarter to eleven-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

Chorus

The second Jew died, but he didn't fare so well-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum
He took a little journey all the way down to Hell-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

Chorus

He asked Old Nick for a whisky and a sodium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum
But the Devil just said 'Keep shovelling on the coal-ium!'
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

Chorus

The moral of this story is quite easy for to see-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum
If you want any more you can sing it for yoursell-ium
Glory Hallelujah, Hora-jarum

two distinct songs but appear to be linked by bits of the tune . The more evolved one seems to the Dives and lazarus one and the other is just an excuse for daft breakdown of the names.
