    As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grainI take a look at my wife and realize she's very plainBut that's just perfect for an Amish like meYou know, I shun fancy things like electricityAt 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cowsJebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... foolAnd I've been milkin' and plowin' so long thatEven Ezekiel thinks that my mind is goneI'm a man of the land, I'm into disciplineGot a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chinBut if I finish all of my chores and you finish thineThen tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699We been spending most our livesLiving in an Amish paradiseI've churned butter once or twiceLiving in an Amish paradiseIt's hard work and sacrificeLiving in an Amish paradiseWe sell quilts at discount priceLiving in an Amish paradiseA local boy kicked me in the butt last weekI just smiled at him and I turned the other cheekI really don't care, in fact I wish him well'Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hellBut I ain't never punched a tourist even if he deserved itAn Amish with a 'tude? You know that's unheard ofI never wear buttons but I got a cool hatAnd my homies agree, I really look good in black...foolIf you come to visit, you'll be bored to tearsWe haven't even paid the phone bill in 300 yearsBut we ain't really quaint, so please don't point and stareWe're just technologically impairedThere's no phone, no lights, no motorcarNot a single luxuryLike Robinson CrusoeIt's as primitive as can beWe been spending most our livesLiving in an Amish paradiseWe're just plain and simple guysLiving in an Amish paradiseThere's no time for sin and viceLiving in an Amish paradiseWe don't fight, we all play niceLiving in an Amish paradiseHitchin' up the buggy, churnin' lots of butterRaised a barn on Monday, soon I'll raise anotherThink you're really righteous? Think you're pure in heart?Well, I know I'm a million times as humble as thou artI'm the pious guy the little Amlettes wanna be likeOn my knees day and night scorin' points for the afterlifeSo don't be vain and don't be whinyOr else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your heinieWe been spending most our livesLiving in an Amish paradiseWe're all crazy MennonitesLiving in an Amish paradiseThere's no cops or traffic lightsLiving in an Amish paradiseBut you'd probably think it bitesLiving in an Amish paradisecopypasted from azlyrics

    " i wished him well, because i will be laughing my head off when he is burning in hell", Best line of the centry


    True story: my neighbor is good friends with a local amish family who they drive around town whenever they need a ride. They were so close that they attended a couple of amish weddings. Eventually even eating at my neighbor's house. While there they watched a few john wayne flicks before showing them this music video. They loved it. Watched it three times even.

  • Lady Breton

    Somehow...he looks legitimately cool/almost attractive in this amish getup. O.o

  • LeoLonderLand

    The vocalizing in the end is so good.

  • Johanna Kidd

    He is so very good! Love this mans parodies!

  • John Basden

    Weird Al asked Coolio for permission. He was brushed off as a joke. Then Coolio got mad when this version became more popular than the original

  • Jacob Unseld

    If someone, especially a local boy was burning in hell, it would be dangerous an you’d be arrested. It would be bad and scary.

    A small quibble, though they come from the same roots Amish and Mennonites are not the same thing today http://thirdway.com/faq/whats-the-difference-between-mennonites-and-amish/

  • Shawn Narayan

    It is very funny. No wonder he had to apologise to Coolio

  • Dalrae

  • Joe

    A wise man once told me, "He who 's tired of Weird Al, is tired of life.

  • Robert Raymond Cheesman III

    It's strange how the phone was created in the late 1800's. So most amish would proably preffer not to have a phone. lol
