J's Journal:
Everybody out there knows the famous opening line of the 23rd Psalm, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Speaking as a person whose owned both sheep and goats (check out the photo on the inside of the "Jesus Christ Morningstar” CD booklet), it’s not as easy to keep sheep in line as you might think (Goats, much to my surprise, were a cinch.) I remember chasing my first sheep, Sparky, for a long time all over the place MANY times to try and get him where he needed to be. But that’s nothing compared to how hard and how often God has had to chase me to get me where I needed to be. This song is one of our silliest endeavors, but it’s also one of our most-beloved parodies. I knew it would be popular with kids when I wrote it back in the mid-1990's, but I also figured it would take a few years to convince the guys in the band that we should do it. We deliberately put it last on "Grace Period" so people would know that we realized how silly it was. When I was listening to the playback of the "Grace Period" CD for the first time, I forgot about this song, so when it came on last, it really cracked me up. I couldn't believe how nicely it turned out. A couple other independent Christian groups I know of have covered this song. That was a real kick, and they've both done great jobs. The first parody I ever heard of this song was on “Welcome Back, Kotter.” Remember that one?

Baa! We're Lambs
Parody of "Barbara Ann" by Beach Boys
(Psalm 23, John 10:1-30, Matt. 25:31-46, Heb. 13:20, 1 Peter 2:25, 5:4, Luke 10:3)

Baa Baa Baa Baa Baa we're lambs
Baa Baa Baa Baa Baa Baa
I'm a lamb -- in God's hand -- I'm a lamb
He's got a flock of lambs who know Him
Robbers cannot steal 'em from His hand
Baa Baa Baa Baa we're lambs
Went through the fence, lookin' for some friends
God saw me scram so He brought me back again
Cause I'm a lamb in God's hand
You got to follow where He's goin'
God'll take you in the Promised Land
CHORUS
Tried many moves -- Tried getting loose
Tried petting zoos but I knew they wouldn't do
Cause I'm a lamb in God's hand
You got to follow where He's goin'
God'll take you in the Promised Land
Baa Baa Baa Baa we're lambs
CHORUS
Baa! We're lambs, Baa! We're lambs, Baa! We're lambs ...

John 10:8
All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
