Lyrics
I once loved a Sheppard,
A charming, handsome man.
One wave of his hickory stack,
And I'd follow him 'round the land.
'Til one day I noticed,
I weren't the only one,
There was all kind of other little pretty young sheep,
Havin' all kind of pretty young fun.

Hallelujah, I am the happiest lamb (x2)

I ran to Mother Mary,
My face as white as snow.
She said "Kid you remind me of someone I used to know,
Be grateful for your freedom, remember what I said
No Sheppard man alive can grow the wool that gets him paid."

Hallelujah I am the happiest lamb (x2)
I left my flock and headed off right to the promise land,
Hallelujah I am the happiest lamb.

It's raining, I'm frozen,
But I won't sell my wool to buy my shack.
Cause I know it gets much colder when you let some Sheppard sheer it off your back.
No Sheppard man alive can grow the wool that gets him paid.

Hallelujah, I am the happiest lamb (x2)
I left my flock and headed off right to the promise land,
Hallelujah, I am the happiest lamb.

And if you want to know about me,
Just ask around who I am,
They'll tell you I am
The happiest lamb.
