Little Ant
up on a hill
tryin' ta' do
what little ants will.
tryin' ta' fill
that little ant hill.
and still
it ain't full.

all day long
lift & carry,
tote & barge.
no time to tarry.
" Ok Sarge,
that piece is too large.
Hey Harry,
give me a hand.
get this piece up on dry land."

does Little Ant
ever blink?
stop & think
"man this job stink?"
then he gives old Harry a wink.
"gotta keep goin'
or we'll sink."

"when's enuff's enuff
of carryin' this stuff?"
an ant's life sure is tough.
"hey Sarge,
this life's too rough.
this job's too tough."

ain't that ant
a lot like a Man?
lived his life
and all he did was ran.
tryin' ta' fill
his little ant hill
with "stuff".
sure makes a man's
life be rough.

"Hey Man,
when's enuff's enuff?"
