Bob Carlisle; Gary Chapman; Michael W. Smith; Russ Taff; Wayne Watson - Nothing Ever Happens to a Shepherd Lyrics
SCENE 10:
Not far from the stable, shepherds are
sitting on a hillside watching their
sheep and complaining about the
thanklessness of their job.

SHEPHERD #1: It's cold out tonight
in this God forsaken place
And we're stuck here with a
thousand sheep
While life is exciting everywhere else

FOUR SHEPHERDS: The highlight of
our day is sleep

SHEPHERD #2: Shepherds are
notorious for making little profit
We garner just enough for room
and board
While everyone else wallows in
their wealth

FOUR SHEPHERDS: We're financially
ignored

'Cause nothing ever happens to
a shepherd
Life is boring as can be
While exciting things occur all over
the world
Nothing ever happens to me
Nothing ever happens to me

SHEPHERD #3: It's lonely out here in
this isolated job
Our position is without esteem
We're socially challenged, we're
society's scourge

FOUR SHEPHERDS: We're not exactly
every woman's dream

SHEPHERD #4: Shepherds have a
humble purpose
Of our fate, few people care
Sometimes I wonder if God knows
we exist

FOUR SHEPHERDS: If He does, I am
certain He's forgotten where

Nothing ever happens to
a shepherd
I'm common as common can be
While exciting things occur all over
the world
Nothing ever happens to me
Nothing ever happens to me

Shepherds are the lowest of the low
Or lives are void of mystery
Except for David killing Goliath
No shepherd will go down
in history

'Cause nothing ever happens to
a shepherd
I'm common as common can be
While exciting things occur all over
the world
Nothing ever happens to me
No, Nothing ever happens to me

GABRIEL: Do not be afraid, for I
bring good news
Which will be a great joy to
all people
For there is born this day in the
city of David
A Savior, who is Christ the Lord
And this will be the sign to you
You will find the Babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes lying in
a manger
