lyrics

Go to the Ant

Are you responsible?
Do you ever do a job without being told to?
Or are you the lazy kind, and your mother and your father always have to scold you?
Well, God in His wisdom tells us where to go
To one of his smallest of teachers
If you want to be a responsible person, then learn how from one of His creatures

Chorus: Go to the Ant! Observe her - see how she works all day
And she doesn't even have a captain to tell her what to do, but she works hard anyway
Go to the Ant! and listen
Tell me, does she complain?
She is God's illustration of organization - Go to the Ant!
Are you the thoughtful kind?
Do you ever ask what you can do to help your mother?
Or do you complain and whine
And you lie around and hope that she will ask your brother?
Well, there was a poor irresponsible sluggard, who slept when there was work to be done
But too late he realized his foolish behavior
And poverty hit him like a man with gun!

Chorus: Go to the Ant! Oh sluggard
See how she works all day!
And she doesn't even have a captain to tell her what to do, but she works hard anyway!
Go to the Ant, and listen
Tell me, does she complain?
God made her, now you imitate her - Go to the Ant!
