Sometimes I get so angry with the simple life they lead

And the shepherd's smile seems to confirm my fears

They've never questioned anything, never disagreed

Sometimes I think they must have wool in their ears

And when you see a cane I see a crook

And when you see a crowd I see a flock

It's sheep we're up against

It's sheep we're up against

When I was young they used to get me counting sheep

But the counting I did was all in vain

Now when I'm tired and I'm trying to get to sleep

I count humans jumping onto trains

And when you see a cane I see a crook

And when you see a crowd I see a flock

It's sheep we're up against

It's sheep we're up against, ah ha

[influential guitar break]

Ah yeah, ooh

And when you see a cane I see a crook

And when you see a crowd I see a flock

It's sheep we're up against

It's sheep we're up against, woah ho

It's sheep we're up against, woah ho

Woah, woah, woah, woah
