The Lyrics

The long-awaited-by-no-one sequel to "A Shepherd Am I". OS lyrics here. MIDI here (first few bars are musical intro).
When, as a man,
Juices first started flowing,
Seemed all my dates were going wrong

Never could swing
Each fling became a bummer
Finally found where I belong

Ranchin' hands,
Each in route
Such as we
Clutchin' ewe

Sheep, rare and fine
Real dames never seemed so good:
Mean to mankind;
Always feel misunderstood


Nookie each night
I don't take no baloney
Don't pay no alimony, too
Out in the dirt
Flirtin's a little bolder
I'm never cold when enfoldin' ewe

Clutching arm...
Bleating out...
Much as she...
Loves it, too

Sheep, bare and mine
"Felines" never seemed so good
Sheep, their behind:
Would I leave? I never would...
Oh, no, no...


Sheep, they're divine
Women wouldn't; never would
I'm disinclined
To relieve them if I could
Sheep: care, ovine
(repeat until you fade)

"Farm, Clutching arm...Bleating out...Much as she... Loves it, too" Wow. . .what an interesting love story. . .not a personal experience I hope;) This one actually fits well enough to sing it, and though I'm not a huge Neil Diamond fan, I like this particular OS. . .Good job on a seemingly simple but not so easy to parody song.
