Lyric Amish Paradise


As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain
I take look at my wife and realize she s very plain
But that s just perfect for an Amish like me
You know I shun fancy things like electricty
At 4:30 in the morning I m milking cows,
Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows...fool!
And I ve been milkin and plowin so long that
Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone.
I m a man of the land I m into discipline
Got my Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin.
But if I finish all my chores and you finish thine
Then tonight we re gonna party like it s 1699.
CHORUS-
We ve been spending most our lives living in an Amish Paradise
I ve churned butter once or twice living in an Amish Paradise
It s hard work and sarifice living in an Amish paradise
We sell quilts at discount price living in an Amish Paradise
A local boy kicked me in the butt last week
I just smiled at him and I turned the other cheek,
I really don t care, in fact I wish him well
cause I ll be laughing my head off when he s burning in Hell.
But I ain t never punched a tourist even if he deserved it,
An Amish with a tude you know that s unheard of.
I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat
And my homies agree I really look good in black...fool!
If you come to visit you ll be bored to tears
We haven t even paid the phone bill in 300 years.
But we ain t really quaint so please don t point and stare,
We re just technologically impared.
There s no phones no lights no motor cars not a single luxury
Like Robinson carusoe we re as primitive as can be.
CHORUS-
We ve been spending most our lives living in an Amish Paradise.
We re just plain and simple guys lving in an Amish Paradise
There s no time for sin and vice living in an Amish Paradise.
We don t fight we all play nice living in an Amish Paradise.
Hitchin up the buggy, churnin lots of butter, raise a barn on Monday,
Soon I ll raise another.
Think you re really righeous, think you re pure in heart
Well I know I m a million times as humble as thou art.
I m the pious guy the little Amlets wanna be like
On my knees day and night scorin points for the afterlife.
So don t be vain and don t be whiny or else my brother I might have to ger medieval on
your heiny
CHORUS-
We ve been spending most our lives living in an Amish Paradise
We re all crazy Mennonites living in an Amish Paradise
There s no cops or traffic lights living in an Amish Paradise
But you d probably think it bites living in an Amish Paradise.
