      *worried* You do get it really, don’t you – or is it one of these things that turns into gibberish when it crosses the Atlantic?

        It’s got a nice beat, and the sheep are cute, but I really don’t get it. Maybe the wool between my ears is too dense today? Or maybe I’m on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

          OK – the first stanza is an injunction not to keep female sheep overfed.
          Then the second one has the double meaning of the gain of the Baa (in weight) as a bargain, as being a fat lot of use – which is no use whatsoever in colloquial speech.
