The Lyrics

Tried to amend my job searching habits
Moved down to a place called LA
Getting dates without speed, at 4H club meetings
Drinking a whole lot of booze and packing on weight

But at night I had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of goat-filled retreat
Not veterinary, just big ol' parries full of heaps
Of wooly lamb, and a huge group of sheep

Sheepherder in Paradise (Paradise)
Best job on Earth if you don't mind flies
Sheering some wool all though the night
I'm just a Sheepherder in Paradise

Heard about them old Islamic men
They do the same thing again and again
America instead don't work till we're dead
And we can vacation down in Florida in a Holiday Inn

Times change
Shepards these days
When I'm at work I have to watch sheep
Not just Africanas, or Comisanas or Biellese
But that God given creation on which I need

Sheepherder In Paradise (Paradise)
Stable, or barn for the right price
Farming ain't worth, but sheep are nice
I'm just a
Sheepherder In Paradise

(Farmyard solo)

I got mine like Bo-Peep, and Shari Lewis
Sleeping with a crook is how I do this
Some suntan lotion and a foldout chair
Well got tons of money but I don't care I'm a

Sheepherder In Paradise (Paradise)
Filling my mug with lemonade iced (Paradise)
Stay awake often is what that's advised (Paradise)
To be a Sheepherder In Paradise
To be a Sheepherder In Paradise
I'm just a Sheepherder In Paradise

I got mine like Bo-Peep, and Shari Lewis
Sleeping with a crook is how I do this
Some suntan lotion and a foldout chair
Well got tons of money but I don't care

(Animal) "Sheepherder" is a brilliant sub for "Cheeseburger" !

(Animal) Not sure how I missed this one. Lots of good subs, but the title is perfection.

Not sure NY-Yankees, why are you coming out of the closet on someone's parody. . .I don't know, because you can't be talking about the actual parody itself. . .I didn't read anything about the sheep-herder being gay.
