High Hopes

Next time you're found, with your chin on the ground
There's a lot to be learned, so look around!
Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant?
Anyone knows an ant can't
Move a rubber tree plant!

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes;
He's got high apple pie in the sky hopes.
So any time you're getting low, instead of letting go,
Just remember that ant!
Oops! There goes another rubber tree plant!
Oops! There goes another rubber tree.....
Oops! There goes another rubber tree plant!

When troubles call, and your back's to the wall,
There a lot to be learned; that wall could fall!

Once there was a silly old ram,
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam.
No one could make that ram scram!
He kept butting that dam!

'Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes:
He had high apple pie in the sky hopes.
So any time you're feeling bad, instead of feeling sad,
Just remember that ram!
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt dam!
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt....
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt dam!
