"Sheep" as written by Ian Peter Cullimore and Paul Heaton....
Sometimes I get so angry with the simple life they lead
The shepherds smile seems to confirm my fears
They've never questioned anything, They've never disagreed
Sometimes I think they must have wool in their ears

And when you see a can I see a crook
And when you see a crowd I see a flock
It's 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
No when I'm tired and I'm trying to get to sleep
I count humans jumping onto trains

And when you see a can I see a crook
And when you see a crowd I see a flock
It's sheep we're up against
Sheep we're up against

And when you see a can I see a crook
And when you see a crowd I see a flock
It's sheep we're up against
Sheep we're up against

    General CommentThis sounds like the voting public and how they are afraid to vote differently. They follow like sheep

    Whereas the intellectually superior are not sheep and speak their own mind, they are up against the sheep who are the majority, so nothing gets done

    In essence, people are idiots
