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

Hands,
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

But...
Now...
I...

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

Farm,
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...

(interlude)

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.
