Subject: Lyr Add: HIGH HOPES (S Cahn, J Van Heusen)
Once there was a silly old ant,
Thought he'd move a rubber tree plant,
Anyone knows an ant
Can't
Move a rubber tree plant.

But he had high hopes,
High hopes,
High apple pie in the sky hopes

So any time you're feeling blue,
Here's the thing to do
Just remember that ant --
Whoops! There goes another rubber tree plant.

Whoops there goes another rubber tree
Whoops there goes another rubber tree
Whoops there goes another rubber tree plant!
(Plant!)

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd butt a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram
Scram
He just kept a-buttin' that dam.

But he had high hopes,
High hopes,
High apple pie in the sky hopes

So any time you're feeling bad
'Stead of getting sad
Just remember that ram --

Whoops! There goes a billion kilowatt
Whoops! There goes a billion kilowatt
Whoops! There goes a billion kilowatt dam!
(oh, Dam!)

Don't remember the verse about the goat, and there may have been some kind of interlude or bridge verse but if so I've forgotten. - Rita Ferrara
