The Lyrics

Couldn't believe no one had yet seized on such an obvious title. Unfortunately, I did.
If not for ewe,
Would be uddered paramour--
Cud-chewers, a bovine bore.
I'd be cooing "moo"
If not for ewe.

If not for ewe,
Babe might make me take delight,
Might make bacon each night--
Porcine purview,
That pig would not be stew
If not for ewe.

If not for ewe,
In sties I'd crawl,
But I'd rather woo
You for your love and wool sweaters in the fall;
Might be hogs if not for ewe,
So don't say we're through.

If not for ewe,
Might try piebald,
But I'd rather woo
You for your love and wool sweaters in the fall;
Might be hoss, it's true,
If not for ewe.

If not for ewe,
Women might be my thing;
I might wear a wedding ring.
Now I eschew mutton stew,
Each day I might be singing "Soo'"*
If not for ewe.


*short for "Sooey!"

Not just a sheep shot, here...sounds like you're working as a Ramrod on this ranch

I fear you're getting dangerously close to "If Not For Stu" here, JAB - hey how about another "Put A Spell On You" piece? - 555

Ah! I missed this one the other day. I love a good barnyard boffing parody - we are working on Nice to Be with Ewe at the moment! ;-D
