8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
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 gettin' low, 'stead of lettin' go,  Just remember that ant.
Oops there goes another rubber tree,  Oops there goes another rubber tree,
Oops there goes another rubber tree, plant.
