Sometimes I get so angry with the simple life they lead
The shepherd's smile seems to confirm my fears
And 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 (whoa-oh)
And when you see a crowd, I see a flock 
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against)
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, 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 tryna get to sleep
I count humans jumping onto trains

And when you see a cane, I see a crook (whoa-oh)
And when you see a crowd, I see a flock 
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against)
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against)

Oh yeah

And when you see a cane, I see a crook (whoa-oh)
And when you see a crowd, I see a flock 
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against)
It's sheep we're up against (sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against, sheep we're up against)

Whoa, sheep we're up against
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

The Housemartins

The Housemartins were an English indie pop band that was active in the 1980s. Many of the Housemartins' lyrics were a mixture of Marxist politics and Christianity, reflecting singer Paul Heaton's beliefs at the time (the back cover of London 0 Hull 4 contained the message, "Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope"). more »
