The Ant Down Under!! Capo 2-Em - Proverbs 6:6, 30:25
Have you ever wondered,
in the land down under Your house
If a mouse, or a mole in its hole
Can work hard as the Ant?
It CAN’T!!!
Have you ever pondered, in the land up yonder,
Why some children play, every minute of the day
But when it’s time to work…,
Refrain: They SHIRK responsibility,
Complain & fuss incessantly,
They grumble and procrastinate,
And cry, “I’ve got a tummy ache!”
It doesn’t take a doctor or psychiatry degree
To diagnose the problem: ----They need a dose of ANT THEOLOGY!!!

Ants: “We can hoist a host of hornets
We can fetch a feast of flies,
Grab a gangly green grasshopper
(if he’s dead & dried!)
We don’t even have a captain
Telling us what we should do!
If you follow our example,
You will be responsible, too!”
Spoken: “And, by the way”
When we’re in the land down under
We can hear such rumbling;
Then we wonder, is it thunder? Or is it child-ren grumbling?!!
Have you ever pondered, in the land up yonder, Why some children play, every minute of the day, But when it’s time to work… They SHIRK responsibility, Complain & fuss incessantly, They grumble and procrastinate, And cry, “I’ve got a tummy ache!” And when they say I CAN’T— “I can’t!” They need a lesson from the Ant!! They need a lesson from the Ant!!
