That’s where we were out on the farm
I got a bright ruddy face and a sheep in my arms
Into the field sling in my hand
And I’ll kill all the bears that are threatening my lambs

That’s when you came oil in hand
And you asked “Is this it?”
He said “No, there’s one left. He’s in the field minding the sheep
But he’s younger than young and he ain’t all that big.”

Then to the field sling at my side
I got a bright ruddy face and that look in my eye
Then I look up, up to the sky
But I ain’t looking at him, no I’m looking to God

Jonathan my best friend
Your dad is trying to kill me, what will he do next?
Then I snuck up next to him in the cave
But no, I will not kill him the anointed must live

I’m a little one
