Is it a sheep or a lion? Watch the video and decide yourself.


Once upon a time, a Spring time, as a matter of fact a night-time, a certain flock of sheep had a visit from ol' Mr. Stork.

Rough trip.
Well, here we... Pardon me.
I mean, here we are now.
Please don't crowd each other. Pick out the ewe that you like best, and she will be your mother.

Come on, you lazy little lamb. It's time you were awake.
Oh, goodness me. That's not a lamb.
Oh, There must be some mistake.
Oh, where am I? Uh, leopards, lizards...Oh dear, lynxes. lambs, llamas... How did this happen to me?

Lambert? But that's no lamb at all. Lambert is a lion! South Africa?
Oh, goodness me. I've got to do some flying.
Come, Lambert.
Uh, pardon me. I beg your pardon.
Sorry, sorry.
Oh, Mrs. Sheep. I'm afraid there's been a slight bungle.
Ha-ha. I'll take that vicious little brute and drop him in the jungle.

Well, goodness. Heavens to Betsy. Let her have it. Let her have anything she wants,
for heaven's sakes. I'm only a delivery service, that's all.

Well, the next morning when the sun rose, the sheep rose.  And all the little lambs were being tidied up by their mothers.
And-and Lambert there, just look at the little guy, why, he could hardly wait to run and jump and gambol with his... brothers.

 Uh-uh. You're right. There's something wrong.
 The other lambs laughed at him and teased him with a song.

You can't even baa
You can't even bleat
Your ears are too big
and so are your feet

Your tail is too short
And so is your wool
There isn't enough
for one bag full

Lambert the sheepish lion
Lambert is always tryin'
To be a wild and wooly sheep
Lambert the sheepish lion

Little lambs all love to butt
Their heads on a stone
Lambert thought
that he could lick
A dozen lambs alone

While the other lambs
all gathered round
To watch this funny bout
Ha ha ha ha
He wanted to be counted in
But he was counted out

Lambert the sheepish lion
Lambert is always tryin'
To be a wild and wooly sheep
Lambert the sheepish lion

The little lambs
got Lambert's goat
He was a nervous wreck
He had to hide behind his ma
To save his little neck

He couldn't baa
and he couldn't butt
At last poor Lambert knew
He hated to admit
that he was yellow
Through and through

Time changes everything.
The little spring lambs were sheep by fall.
And Lambert's ma, oh, was she proud of him!
Because she had the biggest sheep... Uh, ewe, lamb, mutton... Isn't he huge?

However, he's still the butt of all their jokes
and takes it on the chin.
But he's not ferocious like a sheep.
But he has a sheepish grin.

One night the sheep were fast asleep.
Lambert woke up with a fright.
For he had heard an awful sound...
... and saw an awful, awful sight.
A hungry wolf had found the flock.
Lambert was petrified.


He couldn't baa, he couldn't butt.
He was big, but he was yellow.
Lambert, Lambert!
Lambert!, Lambert

But when he saw this gruesome sight, and heard his mother cryin',
- Lambert!
Something snapped inside of him.
He was a raging lion.

Lambert's mother is so proud. And the sheep have changed their tune.

Lambert the sheepish lion
Lambert, there's no denying
Now he's a wild and wooly sheep

Instead of a sheepish
Wailing and weepish
Little Bo Peepish lion

Oh, incidentally, don't worry about that hungry wolf. He has a place to cling. He won't starve because that bush has berries every spring.
