High Hopes. Laverne. Shirley. Frank.

Who of us has never felt sad or depressed? Well, whenever you are feeling challenged like that, think of the ant who has High Hopes.

So any time your feelin’ low stead of lettin’ go
Just remember that ant

What ant, you may ask. Well, the ant about which Laverne and Shirley sing. That’s what ant.

There is a cute rendition of High Hopes that Frank Sinatra sings with Eddie Hodges. Give a listen:

Continue on to read all the lyrics for High Hopes.

Next time your 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 your feelin’ low stead of lettin’ go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant.

When troubles call
And your back’s to the wall
There a lots to be learned
That wall could fall.

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram scram
He kept buttin’ that dam.

‘Cause he had high hopes
He had high hopes
He had high apple pie
In the sky hopes.

So any time your feelin’ bad stead of feelin’ sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam.

So keep those high hopes
Keep those high hopes
Keep that apple pie
In the sky hopes.

All problems just a toy balloon
They’ll be bursted soon
They’re just bound to go pop
Oops, there goes, another problem, kerplop.

Oops, there goes, another problem, kerplop…
