THE BUREAU - ONLY FOR SHEEP (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back..... A one hit wonder in 1981 for UK band "The Bureau", Only for Sheep made it to No6 in the Australian music charts..... Yes folks, we loved this song while the rest of the world.... well, didn't.
Ex Dexy's Midnight Runner bass player (Pete Williams) is one of the band members of The Bureau as was their manager after allegedly sacking Kevin Rowland (Dexy's Lead singer).....5 other band members also left Dexy's,.... Hire some new band members, dress them up as Sheep for a video and the rest is history.

When the band members of "The Bureau" asked the Sheep what they thought of the song, the sheep replied........  Bahahahahahahahahahah





ONLY FOR SHEEP LYRICS (everybody sing)


That man is in pain and he's shouting so loud
There's a space all around him a space in the crowd
He is holding his head like it's gonna explode

It's part of a new meaning
From deep in his soul

It is only for Sheep
only for sheep, for sheep
Yeah
Cos when you're awake you're a sheep
Yeah

You show us a new way you sound so sincere
How sweet it must be to be able to think so clear
But you are just another in a long line of fools

Giving us freedom
With a new set of rules

It is only for Sheep
only for sheep, for sheep
Yeah
Cos when you're awake then you're a sheep
Yeah

It is only for Sheep
only for sheep, for sheep
Yeah
When you're awake then you're a sheep, asleep
Yeah

That man is in pain and he's shouting so loud
There's a space all around him a space in the crowd
He is holding his head like it's gonna explode

It's part of a new meaning
From deep in his soul

It is only for sheep
only for sheep, for sheep
Yeah
When you're awake you're a sheep
Yeah

It's only it's only it's only for sheep
only for sheep, for sheep
Yeah
When you're awake you're sheep


Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah, it's only for sheep
Only for sheep
For sheep, yeah

When you're awake you're a sheep
Yeah
Yeeeaahh
Only for sheep only for sheep
